    The World Cafe is an easy-to-use method for creating a living network of collaborative dialogues. It is built on the assumption that “People already have within them the wisdom and creativity to confront even the most difficult challenges; that the answers we need are available to us; and that we are Wiser Together than we are alone”.
    Three discussion tables will be organised:
    1. PDO foods;
    2. PGI foods;
    3. organic foods.
    People will be divided in 3 groups who will visit each table for 20 minutes discussing each time a different issue (economic importance, promotion, protection).


Moderator-Animator: Federica Camin (FEM), and Simon Kelly (IAEA-FAO).


  • CONCLUSIONS (4.30-5.00 pm)
    Each table leader give a short summary of the discussion.
