The solution to ending hunger is within reach and everybody has a role to play. The «Zero Hunger Challenge» is an initiative that was launched by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in 2012 during the Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro. The United Nations will take this Challenge to Expo Milano 2015, demonstrating to visitors how it is possible to end hunger in our lifetime, how this can only be achieved if we work together and how they can and need to be part of the solution.
Short Food Movie and the UN have joined forces in this ambitious project which aims to increase awareness of the objectives of the Zero Hunger Challenge. Get involved! Find out more about the Challenge and Take Part.
The Italian company, a world leader in wellness and the official supplier of the last five editions of the Olympic Games, will develop within the Universal Exhibition in Milan a thematic flow dedicated to physical activity, healthy lifestyles and fitness. The relationship between diet and exercise will be the central theme of Technogym's Wellness project for the Expo. Through the integration of fitness gear, apps, wearable devices, audio-visual technologies and wellness programmes, Technogym will showcase modes of movement and exercise that are accessible in everyday life and places: at home, at work, at school, the hospital, traveling, the gym, the pool and more.
Technogym supports the Short Food Movie project launching the contest on the topic "food and wellness". Wellness is the lifestyle that Technogym advocates. It is founded on three pillars: regular physical activity, a balanced diet and a positive mental approach. It is a lifestyle profoundly rooted in the ancient Roman philosophy, "mens sana in corpore sano" (“a healthy mind in a healthy body").
Win a trip to Italy to visit the Technogym Village in Cesena, the first Wellness Campus in the world.
The School Project is a platform of discussion launched by Expo Milano 2015, targeted to the education system at global level: from preschools to universities.
The vision and values of the education system are vital in spreading the contents of the event and leaving a legacy to future generations. To that end, teachers and students are invited to take part in the upcoming Expo: they will be offered the opportunity to engage in a didactic «journey» », which begins with a classroom project focused on Expo Milano 2015 and culminates with a visit to the exposition site and will leave behind a wealth of knowledge and experience to future generations. Thanks to a series of competitions (for example the TIE2015 project by MIUR and PoliCulura-Expo by the Polytechnic in Milan) the best projects submitted by the schools will be introduced to the public at the Italian Pavilion during the Expo event.
Short Food Movie creates the opportunity to link the class work on the themes of Expo and the visit to the Universal Exposition. The pupils, involved in the contests, can share their creative ideas and the knowledge acquired in class by shooting a video about their experience and uploading it on Short Food Movie's platform with the tag “School Project". The videos will be part of a great collective work of art at Pavilion Zero: a unique opportunity to say “I was at Expo too!"
