In the style of the World Social Forum, the Belem+30 World Fair on Sociobiodiversity will be a large meeting between traditional and indigenous communities, researchers and the public. Participants will socialize and discuss scientific, ethical and legal advances from the last 3 decades. The event will also be a forum to discuss and raise the alarm about current threats to the planet’s sociobiodiversity, as well as time to share food, friendship and culture.

Bringing together representatives from different traditional communities from Brazil and around the world with researchers, academics and managers to provide interdisciplinary and intercultural dialogues on safeguarding natural resources and cultural heritage.

Culinary and Gastronomic Culture
This area of the fair aims to promote and value culinary and regional cultural practices related to food. In 2015, Belém was selected by UNESCO as a Creative City of Gastronomy by UNESCO, giving international visibility to the state of Pará as a gastronomic tourism hub. The Pavilion will offer visitors an opportunity to taste regional cuisine and understand the importance of sustainable management practices and the solidarity economy. Food stands will be available for buying, selling and tasting as well as the promotion of science and tourism.
Zito is the preferred suffix in the popular language of Paraense to affectionately designate diminutive words and phrases. At the XVI World Congress of the International Society of Ethnobiology and XII Brazilian Symposium on Ethnobiology and Ethnoecology, the Ethnozito will be a meeting place for children of all peoples and ethnicities. Like the Congress, the Zitinhos will exchange information and experiences. Coordinated by the Group of Socio-Environmental Studies (ESAC), the Ethnozito will have moments of mutual relaxation and learning facilitated by graduates and artists from Pará. We will also have the “Pai d’egua” Space where the Zitinhos will be able to freely express their creativity.
Children must be at least six years old to participate.
