Gabi is a motivated and talented girl that is fighting in Brazil alongside Slow Food for good, clean and fair food, for everyone. She greatly helped in designing the communication for Slow Food Youth Network internationally and greatly contributed to the movement. She did so much for Slow Food and is about time to help her out now!

She is opening the first Brazilian Academy in the region of Curitiba, an educational program that aims to shape the future food leaders whom will contribute to the transition to a sustainable food policy.  Biodiversity is seriously endangered in Brazil, deforestation and industrial farming are decimating the number of species across the country and Slow Food is historically fighting this mass extinction with education.

The Academy is a great way to train young people willing to tackle this problem, but the program has a participation fee that is not affordable for everyone, so Gabi wants to raise funds for 12 scholarships destined to motivated young people in her region that simply could not attend the program in any other way.

Please help Gabi to realize her dream to make the first edition of the Brazilian academy more inclusive by donating what you can. If you can not donate right now, please convince one person to do so.

the funds will be used for:

-finance 12 scholarship of 480 euros each

-support the producers involved in the program that are fighting mass extinction by farming biologically relevant species

-cover travel expenses for the participants

You can check the full program in the Brazilian Academy website 

We, the Slow Food Youth Network, decided to come together and start this fund raise because we chose to have faith in the good will of people and because we want to actively support a friend.

thank you for choosing to stop procrastinating by making this donation now.
