Slow Food develops countless activities, projects and events all around the world, at all levels - Single convivia develop them at community levels, while National Associations and Slow Food International develop them at national and international levels.
Mosts of these activities and projects revolve around four thematic lines:
- Food and taste education
- Connecting producers and co-producers (shortening the food supply chain)
- Developing networks
The Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity builds the capacity of food producers and defends biodiversity and food traditions by creating new economic models that are being put into practice all around the world: 300 Presidia - sustainable food production - projects, 800 Ark of Taste products and Earth Markets.

In 2004, Slow Food launched the Terra Madre Network to give a voice to small-scale farmers and food producers and bring them together with cooks, academics and youth to discuss how to improve the food system collaboratively. Meetings are held at the global, regional and local level and the resulting projects promote knowledge exchange around the world.

All over the world, national associations, convivia and the Terra Madre network are joining forces to carry out pioneering taste and food education projects in events, schools, hospitals, canteens, etc.
Slow Food views learning as a reciprocal process; when a group of people become mutually involved around an educational activity or program about food, they spontaneously begin to form a learning community. This learning approach is also used by Earth Markets.
