World Food Day 2017: Change the Future of Migration

Message of the UNFAO Director-General, for the Concert for the Earth

The Concert for the Earth, organised by CIHEAM-Bari, was held Saturday 28 October 2017, at the Teatro Petruzzelli in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation (FARNESINA) and with the support of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Intended for students, this event intended to explain the importance of investing in rural development and sustainable agriculture to contribute to make migration a voluntary, safe and informed choice. It was also the occasion to invite the young spectators to consider professional careers in the service of cooperation.

This event celebrating the WORLD FOOD DAY was related to the theme "Changing the Future of Migration, Investing in Food Security and Rural Development" and the FAO Director-General, José Graziano Da Silva, addressed a video message in which he hailed the partnership between the FAO and CIHEAM and commended the engagement of Cosimo Lacirignola, Secretary General of the CIHEAM “to make our world fairer and safer, especially for young people in the Mediterranean region”.
