Slow Food-CE is a transnational cooperation project that seeks to improve the capacities of local, public and private actors in order to safeguard and give value to their gastronomic cultural heritage as part of a vision that integrates economic, environmental and social sustainability. The project intends to create a transferable model that can give traditional foods their true value, through knowledge of their producers, plant varieties, animal breeds, traditional processing techniques, folklore, cultural landscape, and enhance the common food heritage of Central Europe, leading to a new alliance between five cities: Venice, Dubrovnik, Brno, Kecskemét and Krakow.
The project’s main outputs are: a transnational strategy, trainings, tools, pilot actions and an investment. At the end of the project the outputs will be embedded in the medium and long-term planning of the partners and made available in EU territories outside the partnership, through dissemination activities involving interested actors including the international Slow Food network.
The partners will develop and test a model to identify and document gastronomic cultural resources in each partner city, a transnational toolbox including urban roadmaps, guidelines and best practices and an e-platform to collect and share this heritage and make it available externally.
