The End of Cages

Torino-Lingotto Fiere

To this day, a great number of farm animals are kept in cages for all or much of their lives.

Caging is cruel and unnecessary: alternative, safer, more sustainable and high welfare systems are available. Slow Food is joining the European Citizen’s Initiative (ECI) that Compassion in World Farming will launch in September and will call on the European Commission to propose legislation to ban the use of cages in animal farming.


  • Mandy Carter, Italy, Compassion in World Farming;
  • Christian Aguerre, France, Breeder of the garrison of the Poule Noire d’Alsace;
  • Davide Lovera, Italy, Parva Domus.

Moderators: Rupert Ebner, Germany, Slow Food Deutschland.

The Terra Madre thematic Forums are presented by delegates of the network and are open to the public as long as seats are available.

Priority entrance reserved for delegates. Access requires registration on site.
