Sustainable Development Festival 2021 in Italy

By ASviS

The annual appointment with the Sustainable Development Festival is renewed for the fifth edition, which will take place from September 28 to October 14 2021, throughout Italy and online. The Festival will take a hybrid format. It aims to stimulate the reflection on the critical issues raised by the current situation, which demonstrate how much all aspects of sustainability (environmental, social, economic, institutional) are interrelated. This interrelation makes the case for integrating policies and actions that guarantee a recovery and exit the crisis on the principles of sustainability while avoiding returning to business as usual.

The Festival was selected for the second consecutive time among thousands of projects to be a finalist of the SDG Action Awards of the UN SDG Action Campaign. It is defined as an innovative initiative and a unique experience at an international level. It is organised by the Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASviS) together with its member organisations and partners. The festival will feature about 20 events organised by ASviS, hundreds of initiatives proposed by Italian civil society, institutions, individuals and the private sector, and events organised by Italian embassies abroad thanks to the collaboration with the Italian Foreign Ministry.
