VIU joins ASviS - Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development
In line with its mission and commitment to promote Sustainable Development, VIU has recently joined ASviS – Alleanza Italiana per lo Sviluppo Sostenibile, the Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development, established in February 2016 on an initiative of Unipolis Foundation and University of Rome “Tor Vergata”.
The aim of the national Alliance is to increase the awareness of the Italian civil society, economic players and policy institutions on the importance of United Nation 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, in order to mobilize those different stakeholders in pursuing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Italy.
The Alliance already brings together more than 120 members among the most important civil society institutions and networks active in the fields of culture, education, public administration or otherwise pursuing specific Sustainable Development Goals (health, well-being, education, employment, quality of environment, gender equality, etc.).
The Italian President Mattarella has recently received AsVis’ representatives to testify the Government's commitment towards sustainability; on the other hand, the Alliance has underlined the importance of putting together a National Strategy for Sustainable Development.
VIU is committed to take part in ASviS’ actions on Education for Sustainable Development and to be actively involved in the activities related, in particular, to Goal 2 - Zero Hunger, Goal 4 - Quality Education, Goal 6 - Clean Water and Sanitation, Goal 12 Responsible Consumption, Goal 16 - Governance, Goal 17 - Partnership.
