Cultural diversity as a driving force for all mankind
The 2013 ECOSOC Annual Ministerial Review presents to the Foundation an occasion to introduce our symposium on “Cultural diversity as a driving force for all Mankind” held in Lizori, Assisi, and Marudo, (Italy) from 22 -26 April 2013. This event celebrated ECOSOC’s High Level Segment Theme and confirmed the role of Science, Technology and Innovation in Foundation’s global work. The UN Alliance of Civilizations attended our symposium and supports our vision of harnessing traditional art together with culture, and maintaining an ever-expanding scientific and artistic vitality. Additionally, the Alliance of Civilizations travelled with Foundation to Lizori and Marudo, Italy, two restored villages, which constitute a new model for environmental education, aiming to harmonize urbanization and innovation together with civilized human development.
