 World Food Day: Migration and Sustainability are the 2017 themes

October 16, World Food Day. This important event was born to commemorate the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), born in 1945. The aim of this recurrence is to raise awareness and mobilize public opinion in support of hungry people, and ensure food security and nutrition for everyone. Every year the theme is different: this year the title is: "We change the future of migration. We invest in food security and rural development.”

The focus is on the phenomenon of migratory movements, due to political and environmental imbalances, and the increasingly urgent quest for eco-sustainability and substantial growth in food production.
