Diritti al futuro
World crises, migration, and a new idea of citizenship
In recent years, global problems have come to the world's attention that are not yet on the agendas of national governments, even though the very future of humanity depends on addressing them in a timely manner. From pandemic to war, from energy crisis to food crisis, from climate change to migration phenomena, our present and future horizon is marked. To base our democracies and maintain our standard of living on inequality in the rest of the world, on the power of arms, on the ecologically unsustainable development of our economies is only a dangerous illusion.
In Europe, 2022 was the year of the insane war unleashed by the Russian Federation. Europe's response was full support for the Ukrainian people. "If this was the year of the war, we must concentrate our efforts so that 2023 is the year of the end of hostilities, of the silencing of weapons, of the halting of this inhuman trail of blood, of death, of suffering," said President Mattarella in his end-of-year address.
Acknowledging complexity, exercising responsibility for choices, confronting the limits imposed by a reality increasingly characterized by global phenomena is what the time we are living is imposing on us.
III meeting - Wednesday, May 31 - 5:00-6:30 p.m.
The Italian Constitution compass for a new idea of inclusive, supportive, generative citizenship
In the year in which it turns 75 years old, the Italian Constitution remains our compass for convincingly cultivating peace and democracy while respecting everyone's freedom.
What is the contribution of individuals, intermediate bodies, the Third Sector and institutions at every level according to the demanding yardstick that the constituents defined for the removal of social barriers, for the affirmation of the rights of all without distinction of sex, ethnicity, religion, for the promotion of peace in justice? How can we build a society tailored to the women and men of our time?
