The 9th International Congress of the European Society EurSafe (European Society of Agricultural and Food Ethics) was held on September 15-18, 2010, in Bilbao, Spain, gathering 150 experts from more than 20 countries, with the purpose of reflecting on ethical-social and legal issues posed by bio-scientific advances and the challenges of agriculture and food in the Third Millennium. Under the motto "Global Food Security: Ethical and Legal Challenges", the Congress was organized by the Inter-University Chair in Law and the Human Genome and particular attention was paid to the need to improve access to sufficient, nutritionally adequate and safe food for all humankind, and to the socio-economic and political obstacles which, from day to day, impede this access, given that twenty years after taking on the Millennium Objectives, poverty and hunger have not only failed to decline, but continue to reach record figures. Professor Stefano Rodotà, member of the European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies, deserves a special mention. That Group, independent and multidisciplinary, was created for the purpose of advising the European Commission on ethical aspects of science and new technologies in connection with the preparation and implementation of Community legislation and policy. Below we reproduce the speech given by Professor Stefano Rodotà during the EurSafe 2010 Congress's Plenary Session hold in Bilbao, 17th September 2010.
