Sponsorship and partnership project Pavilion CONAF‐WAA‐AMIA in EXPO Milano 2015

Food and Identity: the global farm of the future is the title of the project promoted by CONAF thus making it the representative of the Civil Society within the vast world of initiatives, events, national pavilions and topic meetings of EXPO.
Not simply an exhibitor but a partner, due to the contents and connections by which its pavilion creates attractions, relationships and business both for professionals and companies.
Food linked to the identity of the territory: to describe and represent the relationship between food and identity means to portray a GLOBAL FARM: an articulated Farm which necessitates comparable common rules to satisfy “world nutrition” in a sure and lasting way.
The sponsorship project is aimed at national and international commercial businesses, organizations, institutions, other professional regional, local, national and international associations, professional firms and free lance professionals.

The Pavilion

Project description
During the six months of EXPO The project foresees, within the pavilion, a combination of initiatives including seminars and forums which will culminate with the World Congress. Here all world agronomist representatives will meet in an all round discussion on the topics of EXPO and the global farm and to highlight the best practice in use.

It is fundamental to represent this relationship not only in a territorial context but also on a world scale. The Global Farm, proposed by WAA‐AMIA/CONAF as their participation at Expo Milano 2015, wants to define a global farm model along agricultural and food lines gathering ideas as well as identifiable, sustainable and lasting projects for food production. In the agro food farming sector, in fact, globalization has already begun, but in recent years some practices foreshadow a global farm model.

From bio diversity to production, from local development to food waste, from social responsibility to climatic change, the participation project of WAA‐AMIA/CONAF at the Universal Exhibition “Food and Identity” ‐ the global farm of the future” gives weight to the role of the agronomist and the social responsibility of firms to diffuse an idea of sustainable development and territorial diversity.

Il titolo del VI Congresso Mondiale è denominato “Cibo e Identità: la fattoria globale del futuro“. Le attività del Programma WAA for EXPO2015, La Fattoria Globale del Futuro sono disponibili anche nel sito Ufficiale dell’Esposizione all’indirizzo http://www.expo2015.org/cs/Satellite?c=CivilSociety&childpagename=EXPO%2FCivilSociety%2FEXPOLayoutCivilSociety3&cid=1392229279701&pagename=EXPOWrapper

The project aims to develop the social responsibility of the professional agronomist in the planning and programming of a sustainable development in the diverse local territories through the discussion of the following topics:

  • Biodiversity and Genetic improvement
  • Sustainability and Productivity
  • Development and local identity
  • Food and food scraps
  • Culture design and social responsibility
  • Climate change and the production area

The objective is to develop these important topics of discussion in the “Global Farm” context and in doing so highlight the best food production innovation methods in relation to the territory while at the same time verifying sustainable growth of local communities.
The role of the agronomist and his profession appears to be a predominant factor in making this work.
