Modern-day Animal Traction for increasingly sustainable agriculture
Sunday 2 June 2013 - Blah Blah Theatre, Turin
The screening and round-table discussion at Festival CinemAmbiente on Modern-day Animal Traction in agriculture precedes the visit of the thinker, farmer, and environmentalist Pierre Rabhi by a few hours. The coincidence is not without meaning. Within the vision and the practices of the promoters of animal traction in agriculture are wedded spiritual values and the direct commitment of organic farmers to benefit the environment and the economy:
Modern-day Animal Traction is a practice in accordance with nature, supporting sustainable, well-balanced agriculture. It represents a new paradigm of a healthy relationship with Mother Earth in which humans, animals and plants interact harmoniously for the good of the planet.
The session at the Festival will be the first time that the subject is presented in Italy outside of agricultural venues. The purpose is to bring together people with multidisciplinary skills in science and technology as well as in creative and communication fields around the topic of organic farming and animal traction. We aim to integrate an increasingly wider circle of disciplines, and the session will be particularly addressed to documentary film-makers and creative people in the audiovisual industry, social media and experience designers, information and communication operators, and agriculture students and researchers.
With the screening of videos realised by WWOOF Italia, in which the principles and practices of modern-day animal traction are demonstrated, we hope to lay down the foundation for a new alliance between urban and rural areas which will support a new partnership between humans and animals and sustain new ways of living, working, eating and doing business.
The discussion will be introduced by Mario Gala, sheepherder and cheese-maker in the Alta Langa area of Piedmont. Member of the national council of WWOOF Italy and owner of a Slow Food presidium farm, he is also a strong promoter of the use of modern animal traction in agriculture.
Taking part in the discussion will be:
Doctor Enrico Moriconi, member of the national board of Medicina Democratica;
Claudio Papalia, from Fert Rights of Torino, producer of innovative content for social media and publisher of Trancemeia.eu ;
Young organic farmers operating in the Piedmont region.
