Preamble

We, women and men, citizens of this planet, endorse this document, entitled the Milan Charter. In so doing, we make clear commitments concerning the right to food, which we believe should be treated as a fundamental human right.
We consider a lack of access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food, clean water and energy to be a violation of human dignity.
We believe that only our collective action as citizens, together with civil society, businesses and local, national and international institutions, will make it possible to overcome the major challenges related to food: combating undernutrition, malnutrition and waste, promoting equitable access to natural resources and ensuring sustainable management of production processes.

  • we commit to advocating political decisions that will enable achievement of the fundamental goal of equitable access to food for all.
