FLORENCE, ITALY – Terra Futura is a fair-meeting organized in a exhibition area, getting bigger and more articulate every year, and in a very high level program of cultural initiatives, meetings, seminars, workshop; and also laboratories and shows.
Inaugurated for the common goal to guarantee a future for our planet – and to achieve it together –, Terra Futura’s cornerstones are the tasks and the “good practices” of social, economic and environmental sustainability, carried out in all fields, from daily life to social relations, from the economic system to the public administration.
This year the fair will be held in Florence, Italy, at Fortezza da Basso, May 25-27, 2012. Free entrance. Among the fundamental tasks of Terra Futura: 1) Experience and expansion of the “good practices” of social, economic and environmental sustainability already existing and experimented, to foster the virtuous change of the system. 2) Encourage new politics and programs, devise new models and projects, for lifestyles, government and enterprises more respectful of people and environment. 3) Encourage dialogue between institutions, ethically oriented enterprises, non profit organizations, researchers and citizens, so that sustainable development culture and spreading of good practices will act by good “contamination” at every level. 4) Stimulate creation of new networks and synergies, to promote and enforce exchanges between workers of the field and ethic consumers. 5) Awaken young generations, citizens and families to the items of sustainability and new lifestyles, to undertake more responsible behaviours.
