The Sustainable Development Festival 2023

In its seventh edition, The Sustainable Development Festival, organized by Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASviS), to which RUS joins and with which it collaborates, it is the largest Italian initiative to raise awareness and mobilize citizens, younger generations, businesses and institutions on the issues of economic, social and environmental sustainability, spread the culture of sustainability and bring about a cultural and political change that will enable Italy to implement the United Nations 2030 Agenda and center the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Festival's schedule thus reaches hundreds of initiatives proposed by the many souls of civil society each year, but also includes events of national significance curated directly by ASviS and its Working Groups, and numerous festivals in the territories carried out by city governments and universities.
