Contribution to the Milan Charter – EXPO

PROJECT

Contribution to the Milan Charter

DESCRIPTION

The Milan Charter is the cultural legacy of Expo Milan 2015. For the first time in the history of the Universal Exposition, this remarkable international event was preceded by a widespread debate on the Expo’s theme, Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, involving the scientific world, civil society and institutions. The Qualivita Foundation was involved in drawing up the Milan Charter, offering various contributions to the theme of GIs as a sustainable development model for regions and districts. When creating sustainable development models that offer concrete solutions to the global food challenge, the protection of Geographical Indications plays a crucial role in creating added value for producers, rural areas and areas of origin, as well as in the development of virtuous supply chain integration mechanisms.

OBJECTIVES

  • Contribute to the creation of new organisational models for sustainable development
  • Contribute to the creation of value for producers in rural areas and areas of origin
  • Offer guarantees to the consumer

TARGET AUDIENCES

  • National and supranational institutions
  • Citizens
  • Stakeholders in the agri-food sector

ACTIVITIES

  • Data and information research
  • Thematic workshops
  • Elaboration of content for the Charter

RESULTS

The Milan Charter is an official document launched in an international location, involving 145 delegations and signed by over 1.5 million people, which establishes that the international community’s fundamental objective is to ensure that everybody has equitable access to food. The contribution of Geographical Indications, and the model that that they diffuse, confirm the desire to achieve this object through an agriculture model based on the three major pillars of sustainability: environment, economy and society.
