The state of the planet and the endangered rights of its inhabitants is at the center of the third edition of the Festival of Human Rights, on March 20-24, 2018, at Triennale, in Milan.
The aim of the initiative, which includes talks, conferences, photo exhibitions and educational activities, is not only to highlight emergencies such as unsustainable exploitation of natural resources, pollution of land and oceans, climate change, but also to demonstrate that the right to a healthy environment is an economic trigger and key to build a more equitable and sustainable future for the generations of today and tomorrow.
The CMCC Foundation collaborates with the educational program of the Festival, involving over 5,000 high-school students and teachers.
Prof. Carlo Carraro, member of the CMCC Strategic Council, will meet the students on the inaugural day of the Festival, on 20 March, together with the cyclist Paola Gianotti (Guiness World Record for the bicycle ride around the world), in an event dedicated to exploring the links between ecology, economy and ethics.
The Festival of Human Rights is organized by Reset-Diritti Umani, a non-profit association founded in Milan in 2015 to spread both knowledge and a culture of human rights through this festival and other initiatives, with the support of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), the Italian Ministry of the Environment, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, and other Italian institutions and associations.
