Are you aged 18-35 and want a more sustainable food future for Scotland? Would you like to have more opportunities to meet, learn and collaborate with peers in Scotland and around the world?
Join us for an evening of discussion, creative demonstrations, networking opportunities and some delicious food as we share our future plans and opportunities for you to get involved with Slow Food Youth Network in Scotland and around the world!
On the night you have a chance to preview and sign up for our events and trips programme for the year, register your interest in attending the global gathering - Terra Madre Salone del Gusto 2018 - as part of the SFYN Scotland delegation, and be the first to sign up to our new digital platform aimed at showcasing the talent and diversity of Scotland’s young food leaders.
We’re also delighted to be joined as guest speaker by artist Morven Odling who is the creative brain behind ‘Fork in the Road’, a creative research project in collaboration with The Edinburgh Tool Library which explores the relationships between community and food. Mo shares her inspiration behind the project, the role of open design and how you can get involved in using the bike in your own projects.
Other guest speakers and activities are still to be announced (including some from around the world) so make sure to check out the facebook page for the latest announcements.
Nourishment is provided on a PAYF basis from young food entrepreneur Fiona Donaldson of new social enterprise Prep Table. Fi uses food waste from Fareshare and Food Sharing Edinburgh, who also shares news about their Zero Waste Town project during the event.
There'll be a Raffle with some exciting food related prizes from local producers and businesses with all money raised going towards enabling a diverse delegation of young food leaders from across Scotland are able to attend Terra Madre 2018.
The venue has generously been provided to us by Custom Lane, and we are delighted that attendees also have the opportunity to view their latest exhibition, Harvest by Mella Shaw Ceramics, focusing on the environmental tipping point of plastic pollution in the oceans and seas.
