Every year, the BCFN Foundation organises the International Forum on Food and Nutrition, an open event for discussion and debate on issues of nutrition and sustainability.

Experts, international opinion makers and young researchers come together every year for an interdisciplinary event created in order to share findings, scientific data and best practices aimed at building a food model which protects people’s health and the wellbeing of the planet.

From the analysis of the results of research promoted by the Foundation and the contributions of highly regarded speakers, every edition of the Forum has been able to set out practical and effective solutions to urgent issues such as hunger and obesity, the correct use of natural resources, food waste, sustainable diets, the environmental impact of agricultural production and climate change.

The Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition has always given great importance to the role of young researchers and students committed to tackling the current inadequacies of our food systems, and getting actively involved in change. The foundation therefore promotes debate and idea contamination among the young community such as to identify concrete and scalable proposals that can combat the global paradoxes of food, and win the battle for sustainability.

The vast network of partnerships established by the foundation will promote various activities including contests, workshops and online events exclusively for young change makers and their ideas. This period of debate and knowledge sharing will culminate at the next BCFN Forum. The event, held in Milan on the 4th and 5th December 2017, will put young people and their proposals in the limelight, highlighting the important role the new generations play in creating a more sustainable future.
