In collaboration with Italian embassies, ASviS organised the seventh edition of the Sustainable Development Festival from 8 to 24 May in Italy, online and around the world. Over a thousand events have been organised by civil society, companies, and institutions across the country. Naples, Bologna, Milan, Turin, and Rome were among the stops on the Alliance’s journey to discover sustainability’s different dimensions.
Sustainable development lights up the future: this was the claim that drove people to attend meetings, exchange ideas, and share best practices. A great collective effort was put forth by the Alliance’s 330 members to create the festival, which involved universities, schools, regions, cities, associations, citizens, businesses and institutions. Together, they called on politics to focus on a bright and sustainable future.
There were 121 million impressions on social media, over 48 million contacts on TV and radio for the campaign that aired on national broadcaster RAI.
Thanks to the collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Festival was able to promote the values of the 2030 Agenda all over the world with events in Italian embassies, consulates, and cultural institutes, including those in Hong Kong, Berlin, Philadelphia, and Ankara.
