From the 4th to the 6th of September 2015 the international event of the SlowMed project – Food as means of dialogue in Mediterranean context – filled the town of Tavira, in southern Portugal, of scents, flavors, smiles and reflections. The event, hosted within the III Fair of the Mediterranean Diet, was attended by hundreds of local producers. It gave a chance to about 90 participants from the two shores of the Mediterranean Sea to meet and share in the theory and practice the great intangible heritage of the Mediterranean Diet.
The international event organized in the frame of the project SlowMed – Food as Means of Dialogue in Mediterranean Context, co-funded by the ENPI CBC MED programme and sponsored by EXPO Milano 2015, will be held in Tavira, Algarve, a region in southern Portugal. The event will take place from 4th to 6th September 2015.
From December 15th to 17th round tables and planning meetings of the SlowMed project partnership were hosted in Beirut to discuss next year activities.
Exchanging ideas and recipes, the 60 members of SlowMed national working groups got to know each other and started working together during the international meeting in Alexandria, Egypt.
World Food Day is celebrated every year around the world on 16 October to recognize the worldwide problem of hunger and promote actions against it. In this moment, this is noticeably realised through the activities implemented by SlowMed project.
