From May 22nd to June 7th 2018, Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASviS) relaunches the Italian Sustainable Development Festival with a new and renovated edition to spread the culture of sustainable development, foster dialogue and celebrate innovative ideas and solutions, with new formats and contents. The second edition will feature hundreds of events aimed at promoting transformation and engaging civil society, while supporting at the same time the country’s leaders with new proposals to bring Italy on a sustainable development path. More than 180 civil society organizations, several Italian universities and different stakeholders engaged in contributing to the 2030 Agenda, will take part in awareness-raising campaigns and will contribute by launching their own events across the peninsula, North through South. Events belonging to the Festival are marked with an * in the list below. To find out more about the hundreds of  individual events taking place all across Italy during the Festival, please visit the Italian Sustainable Development Festival's website!

The events will include panels, conferences, flashmobs, documentary screenings, workshops and other original format events. The initiatives aim at drawing attention to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and promoting awareness about the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda at all levels.

The Alliance is the largest Italian network dedicated to sustainable development. It was established in February 2016 with the aim of disseminating a culture of sustainability across the Italian society and promoting best practices at government, institutions and business levels.
