On 9 March, in a historical move, the Italian Constitution was modified, adding to its fundamental Principles the protection of the environment, of animals and of future generations. The Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASviS) advocated long for this reform and welcomed this development. The contents of the reform were analysed in an “ASviS Live” event with high-level speakers and experts.
On Monday, 23 May, during an “ASviS Live” event held in Turin at the International Book Fair, the Alliance proposed a reflection on the future of multilateralism and the creation of peace dialogues at the global level, which aimed to explore peaceful and effective conflict resolution, starting from a reflection on the Russian aggression against Ukraine and the statements made by Pope Francis in his Encyclical “Fratelli Tutti”. The Paper “A reasoned reading of the “Fratelli Tutti” Papal Encyclical in light of SDG16”, written by ASviS Working Group on SDG16, is now available online also in English.
Finally, ASviS has contributed to the realisation of the entertainment TV show “Mood to 2030” with national broadcaster RAI, and it has partnered with “Heroes” music festival held in Verona (27-31 May) with a focus on environmental sustainability.
