When civil society educates for sustainability.

Born out of a desire to promote the universal message of Laudato si' in the context of the historic "Climate Agreement" signed in Paris, this event celebrates every year the United Nations’ World Earth Day.
In the beautiful and symbolic setting of the Villa Borghese in Rome, hundreds of civil society organizations supply the wide audience with a free and participatory experience of the extraordinary natural, human, and cultural heritage that is now seriously jeopardized by an exasperated market-oriented approach.
Young people are called upon to meet the challenge of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the UN Agenda 2030 and thus become the real protagonists of an increasingly urgent ecological conversion.
