Limes is the Italian Review of Geopolitics, a bimonthly published in Rome since 1993.
The aim of Limes is to analyse conflicts – political, cultural or military – in specific spaces, basing its research on maps which represent the reasons and the goals of the geopolitical actors involved. Limes is open to diverse, evenconflicting points of view, providing its readers with writings by both analysts (historians, economists, geographers, journalists) and decision makers (political leaders, entrepreneurs, managers). This makes Limes' approach radically anti-academic.
Limes is now the leading Italian publication in its area of studies, with a vast network of correspondents all over the world, from America to Africa, from Europe to Asia and Australia.
The coexistence of hunger and obesity, the overexploitation of natural resources and the large amounts of food lost and wasted are the three food paradoxes identified by the Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition Foundation (BCFN).
The BCFN follows a multidisciplinary approach to contribute to tackle today’s major food-related issues from an environmental, economic and social perspective, to secure the well-being and health of both people and the Planet.
With its action-oriented approach, the BCFN seeks to act as a catalyst to develop frontier ideas, promote solutions and identify new, innovative ways to generate a positive impact towards the achievements of the SDGs and the Paris Climate Change Agreement.
Through research, dissemination and public engagement, our contribution to shift towards more sustainable food systems includes the Nutritional and Environmental Double Pyramid, the Milan Protocol as well as Eating Planet, the Food Sustainability Media Award, BCFNYES! and the educational programme Food, Us and our Planet and the MOOC on Sustainable Food Systems: A Mediterranean Perspective, in partnership with SDSN and SDG Academy.
Food sustainability is about culture, education, health, equity and respect for the planet we live in.
We hope that all these initiatives become useful tools for policy makers and civil society, for experts and trainers, and for anyone studying to work in the food system in the future.
Eat better, eat less, food for all.
