Il valore del pomodoro

Bioplastica dalle bucce di pomodoro. Nel 2005: uno studio del Cnr rivaluta gli scarti vegetali e gli da una seconda vita.
Nel 2012 l'associazione tra il consumo di questo frutto e il minor rischio di alcune malattie ribadito da uno studio dell'Ibba-Cnr e dell'Università di Pisa. Il valore nutrizionale e nutraceutico è influenzato dalle condizioni di coltivazione e se la pianta cresce con i suoi simbionti naturali aumentano le sostanze antiossidanti, che contrastano alcuni tipi di cancro In questi ultimi anni il pomodoro ha guadagnato lo status di 'cibo funzionale', vista l'associazione sempre più frequente stabilita tra il suo consumo e il ridotto rischio di insorgenza di malattie cardiovascolari e tumori. I pomodori coltivati biologicamente, in particolare, instaurano insieme ai loro microfunghi una benefica associazione radicale permanente, paragonabile dal punto di vista funzionale al nostro microbioma intestinale. Lo afferma uno studio condotto da biologi, microbiologi e medici dell'Istituto di biologia e biotecnologia agraria del Consiglio nazionale delle ricerche (Ibba-Cnr) e dell'Università di Pisa, pubblicato sul ‘British Journal of Nutrition' della Cambridge University Press. "I frutti di pomodoro sono una riserva naturale di molecole come acido ascorbico, vitamina E, flavonoidi, composti fenolici e carotenoidi, tra cui il licopene che, oltre a esercitare una forte attività antiossidante, può modulare le vie metaboliche ormonali e del sistema immunitario... >>>

What's wrong with our food system


11-year-old Birke Baehr presents his take on a major source of our food -- far-away and less-than-picturesque industrial farms. Keeping farms out of sight promotes a rosy, unreal picture of big-box agriculture, he argues, as he outlines the case to green and localize food production.

Restauration collective : le bio local freiné par le manque de capacité de transformation

Le prix constitue le principal frein au déploiement du bio, a fortiori local, dans les cantines. Mais pas seulement. Pour des raisons économiques et d'hygiène, les produits doivent être transformés au plus près du lieu de production. Exemple avec la première légumerie bio francilienne.

Sustainable food laboratory

The mission of the Sustainable Food Lab is to accelerate the shift of sustainable food from niche to mainstream. We define a sustainable food and agriculture system as one in which the fertility of our soil is maintained and improved; the availability and quality of water are protected and enhanced; our biodiversity is protected; farmers, farm workers, and all other actors in value chains have livable incomes; the food we eat is affordable and promotes our health; sustainable businesses can thrive; and the flow of energy and the discharge of waste, including greenhouse gas emissions, are within the capacity of the earth to absorb forever.

World Water Forum

ROMA, 26 Nov 2011 from FAME 2012 on Vimeo.

The world's largest meeting around water
Every three years since 1997, the World Water Forum mobilises creativity, innovation, competence and know-how in favour of water. It gathers all stakeholders around today's local, regional and global issues that cannot be undertaken without all stakeholders into a common framework of goals and concrete targets to reach. (by World water forum website)
L'objet du Forum Alternatif Mondial de l'Eau (FAME) est de construire une alternative concrète au VIème Forum Mondial de l'Eau (FME) organisé par le Conseil Mondial de l'Eau, organe des sociétés transnationales et de la Banque Mondiale qui prétend s'arroger la gouvernance mondiale de l'eau.
Depuis des années l'ensemble des mouvements de la société civile qui militent pour la préservation des ressources en eau et leur gestion citoyenne ont élaboré des plateformes, des propositions et des actions, soit au cours de rencontres spécifiques (Forums alternatifs de Florence en 2003 et de Genève en 2005, Alter Forums de Mexico en 2006 ou d'Istanbul en 2009) soit è l'intérieur des Forums Sociaux Mondiaux comme à Porto Alegre, Caracas, Nairobi ou Belem, qui ont servi de base pour l'émergence d'un mouvement pour la réappropriation de l'eau, bien commun de l'humanité.

Manger bio et locale C'EST POSSIBLE !

Aujourd'hui la perception de la qualité d'un repas est de plus en plus globale car elle touche tous les aspects, du champ à l'assiette, de la biodiversité au changement climatique
Le défi posé par une restauration plus respectueuse de notre environnement remet en question nos comportements et habitudes. Plus que jamais, le dialogue entre tous les acteurs est indispensable pour atteindre l'objectif d'une restauration durable.
La table ronde se déroulera sous forme de témoignages et d'échanges avec les participants et le public. elle se poursuivra en fin de journée autour d'un buffet bio et produits locaux auquel sont conviés tous les participants.

SoftAgri Report 2010

The SoftAgri project has been valuable in allowing the people from the eight organisations to meet each other, eat together, and visit inspiring examples of sustainable food and farming in five, diverse European countries.
We learned about the different ways the concept of sustainability is understood and used in the participating countries, and these new insights helped us to rethink our own ideas and develop new ways to promote sustainability.
This short report cannot describe fully the quality of the network of relationships that have been developed by the Softagri project over the two years, but a lively network has been created via googlegroups, which allows people to continue to exchange information between meetings and, now, once the project has ended.
Already some initiatives have been developed for new projects and other ways to exchange knowledge and experiences.

ACM - Mediterranean Citizens' Assembly II


Il cibo è intriso di significati simbolici ed ha un valore sociale elevato.
Rifiutare il cibo degli altri significa rifiutare le altre culture.
Nutrirsi del cibo altrui siginifica entrare un po' nel mondo degli altri, tentare di capirlo, di comprenderlo per riuscire ad apprezzarlo: insomma, degustare un nuovo piatto è come fare un viaggio ricco di esperienze umane o come scrisse Brillat Savarin nel suo libro sulla fisiologia del gusto
"La scoperta di un nuovo piatto rende un uomo molto più felice della scoperta di una stella".

La diète méditerranéenne


La diète méditerranéenne est un ensemble de savoir-faire, connaissances, pratiques et traditions qui vont du paysage à la table, y compris les cultures, la récolte ou la moisson, la pêche, la conservation, la transformation, la préparation et, en particulier, la consommation d'aliments. La diète méditerranéenne se caractérise par un modèle nutritionnel qui est demeuré constant dans le temps et l'espace et dont les principaux ingrédients sont l'huile d'olive, les céréales, les fruits et légumes frais ou séchés, une proportion limitée de poisson, produits laitiers et viande, et de nombreux condiments et épices, le tout accompagné de vin ou d'infusions, toujours dans le respect des croyances de chaque communauté. Mais la diète (du grec ''diaita'' ou mode de vie) méditerranéenne recouvre beaucoup plus que la seule nourriture. Elle favorise les contacts sociaux, les repas collectifs étant la clé de voûte des coutumes sociales et des événements festifs.

ACM - Mediterranean Citizens' Assembly I


Depuis 2008, des citoyens et des citoyennes de la Méditerranée se sont engagés à participer à l'émergence d'une communauté méditerranéenne des peuples. Pour ce faire, ils ont inauguré le processus de construction d'une Assemblée des Citoyens et Citoyennes de la Méditerranée. Ils ont d'abord élaboré une charte constitutive.

Eating city
