Another “Contamination” Session at the Centre
Following on from a neuroscientist, a ship skipper, a designer, dance performers, a transformer of urban spaces and more, Carlo Petrini, founder of Slow Food, is speaking on campus.
The “Contamination” initiative was launched to broaden the perspective of staff concerning issues related to learning and communication. This project involves theorists, practitioners and visionaries, who make short presentations to refresh the knowledge and broaden the perspectives of staff. Even though these outside experts are not directly involved in development issues, they operate in areas of learning and communication that are highly relevant to the work of the UN organizations in Turin, and with a strong international dimension.
Carlo Petrini, the founder of the International Slow Food Movement will be the speaker at the next Contamination session.
Slow Food is an international movement founded in 1986. Promoted as an alternative to fast food, it strives to preserve traditional and regional cuisine and encourages the farming of plants, seeds and livestock typical of the local ecosystem. It was the first chapter established as part of the broader Slow Movement. The movement has since expanded globally to over 100,000 members in 150 countries.
