Objective of the project

To increase awareness, critical understanding and active participation on the topics of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development among italian citizens particularly school-aged youth

Context analysis

In January 2016 the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development came officially into force. Italy is among the world countries which has adopted the Agenda. The Agenda includes 17 so called Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) ranging from ending all forms of poverty, fighting inequalities to tackling climate change. The achievement of these ambitious goals requires the engagement of a variety of stakeholders including  governments, civil society, the private sector etc. However, the general public is not very much aware of the existence of this Agenda. There is no widespread recognition of the relevance of the above-mentioned goals for the everyday life of individuals and communities. This means that individuals and communities are not aware of the resources they can/should mobilize to address these problems and contribute to the implementation of the Agenda. In particular, the project focuses on the SDG 11 meaning sustainable and inclusive cities which addresses an existing need related to the marginalization and limited availability of and access to basic services in the target areas.
