Slow Fish 2023: the ecological transition starts from the sea
Thursday 08 June 2023
UniCredit was recently the Main Partner of Slow Food's initiative named Slow Fish 2023, the biennial event dedicated to the sea and aquatic ecosystems that took place in Genoa. Thanks to our participation we renewed our commitment to sustainability and environmental education with dedicated initiatives for visitors and prospect clients.
UniCredit was the Main Partner of Slow Fish, organised by Slow Food, the biennial event dedicated to aquatic ecosystems that took place from 1 to 4 June at Genoa's Porto Antico.
The Coast to Coast theme, a way of emphasising how aquatic ecosystems and the land are closely interconnected, was at the heart of the 11th edition of the initiative.
UniCredit was present at the event, entirely focused on the theme of sustainability and environmental education, with a dedicated stand at Genoa's Porto Antico where the younger public was engaged with "Omega3", a memory challenge to discover new and amusing facts about the inhabitants of the sea.
Sustainability and support to the Italian tourism sector was instead the focus of the talk 'Perspectives and opportunities for the future of coastal tourism', a roundtable discussion between Slow Food's vision, the Liguria Region's strategies and the services for businesses proposed by UniCredit, with the bank's renewed Made4Italy initiative to promote an integrated tourism-agriculture system to encourage projects linked to typical regional identities and attract new tourist flows.
An additional project called Orti a scuola also took place in the context of Slow Fish, a food education program undertaken by UniCredit in cooperation with Slow Food and aimed at schools.
The project proposes a 'field teaching' method, taking students to learn about and study food, the environment and the fight against food waste in a direct and experiential way.
