Calendar of Events

In addition to its pavilion, the European Union fostered a dynamic and in-depth discussion around how to feed the world healthily and sustainably through the organisation of conferences and events dedicated to the theme of Expo Milano 2015. An ambitious calendar of more than 200 events was developed to address global food security challenges through scientific, policy, business to business (B2B) and cultural events.

These events offered something for everyone from young people to high level scientists, entrepreneurs and policy makers. Our goal for the Expo was to create a lasting legacy that will shape the global debate and contribute to finding solutions to ending world hunger post 2015.

This calendar of events, which can be seen below by clicking the dedicated button, should also serve as a resource base, making accessible to the public the large amount of knowledge created throughout these events.

In case you are interested in particular subjects, you can also find a list of events categorised by topic and their related reports (click on the dedicated button below).
