The Rethinking Dieta Meditteranea in the Anthropocene Hackathon aims to co-create conceptual solutions to rethink the Mediterranean food economy, starting from the concept of the Mediterranean diet.

In this two-day hackathon, we invite students to co-create conceptual solutions for rethinking the Mediterranean food economy, departing from the concept of the Mediterranean diet. At the end of the hackathon, students will be able to answer questions such as: How to empower alternative forms of production and consumption that are both productive and resilient? How will the Mediterranean diet itself change (through, for example, the introduction of formerly ‘tropical’ produce, like mangoes and avocados, that now grow in Southern Italy)? How to guarantee worker rights and ensure proper remuneration in a rural economy marked by a powerful role of informal economic networks as well as persisting structural racism?
