Slow Travel

Terra Madre 2016 identified immersive, experiential travel as a powerful opportunity to advance Slow Food’s global mission in innovative and new ways. Adventures in Slow Travel, a partnership venture of Slow Food USA, Slow Food Canada and Adventure Canada grasps this vision with a Voyage of Discovery circumnavigating the island of Newfoundland off Canada’s east coast in the autumn of 2018. Culture, history, art, Indigenous communities, World Heritage sites, songs and story will be our integrative themes as we explore good clean and fair food relationships on our sailing ‘Around the Rock’ on this inaugural journey with special guest Richard McCarthy, executive director of Slow Food USA.

Join Bill Swan of Adventure Canada and Ingrid Jarrett of Slow Food Canada as they present the highlights of the voyage and explore the opportunities this partnership provides now and into the future for growing the network and advancing the mission and impact of Slow Food.

This session is only open to participants of the Slow Food Leader Summit.
