SFYN podcast

Youth on political activism, sustainable food systems and their relationship to the EU

December 31, 2021

Take a break from December feasts and listen to the last episode of the SFYN podcast focused on EU food policies, in which we actually do not speak about EU food policies. While you are all recovering from delicious but intense end of the year festivities, let us talk to you about youth. These past years, young people from around the world have raised their voices, and took up the fight against climate change, inequalities, racism, war, corruption, you name it. Young people hold a great power to change the world, and more and more of them have decided to use this power to get their message across. 

Mid-December, members of the Slow Food Youth Network in Europe and students at the Slow Food’s University of Gastronomic Science gathered in Bra, in northern Italy. It was a great opportunity for us to sit down with a few of them and discuss about their views on political activism, their desire to see a sustainable food system happening in Europe and beyond, and their relationship to the European Union.

    • Jorrit, president of SFYN
    • Mallory, American student at the Slow Food’s University of Gastronomic Science (UNISG)
    • Paolo, member of SFYN in Sardegna
    • Lianne, president of SFYN Netherlands
