WORLD WATER DAY

Despite the worldwide blockade caused by the "Corona virus", the Mediterranean Foundation and the Museum of Peace - MAMT - through multimedia systems, portals and social networks - celebrated World Water Day with a large community, established by the United Nations in 1992.
The theme of the 2020 edition of the "Day" is the profound link between water and climate change. The goal is to raise awareness of world institutions and public opinion on the importance of reducing water waste and adopting behaviors aimed at tackling climate change.
Climate change, in fact, increases the variability of the water cycle, causing extreme weather events, affecting the quality of the water, threatening sustainable development and biodiversity worldwide. Not only that, the ever increasing demand for water leads to a consequent increase in the need for energy-intensive treatments; in addition, some measures to mitigate climate change, such as the extensive use of biofuels, can further exacerbate the scarcity of water. This is why an integrated approach to climate change and water management must be adopted worldwide as soon as possible. In fact, if you want to create a sustainable future, the management of water resources must be examined through a climate resilience objective.
President Michele Capasso underlined the importance of reflecting on the pandemic of the virus crown to return to protect and safeguard our "common home" and the main resources: first of all water

AT THE VIRTUAL MUSEUM: WORLD POETRY DAY

The Museum of Peace - MAMT has organized the "World Poetry Day" on its multimedia platform, at this very difficult time for everyone.
Poetry reaffirms our common humanity by showing that people all over the world share the same questions and the same feelings. Poetry is the backbone of oral tradition and, over the centuries, has shown how it can communicate the deepest values ​​of different cultures.
In celebrating World Poetry Day on March 21, the United Nations Organization for Education, Science and Culture (UNESCO) recognizes the unique ability of poetry to reflect the creative spirit of individuals.
One of the main objectives of the day is to support the linguistic and cultural diversity of our societies through poetic expression and to offer languages ​​that risk disappearing the possibility of being listened to within their communities.
The celebration of World Poetry Day also aims to:

  • encourage a return to the oral tradition of poetry recitals;
  • promote the teaching of poetry;
  • re-establish a dialogue between it and other arts such as theater, dance, music and painting;
  • support small publishers;
  • create an attractive image of poetry in the media, so that the art of poetry is no longer considered as an obsolete art form, but which allows society as a whole to find and affirm its own identity.

CONTEXT
Celebrated on March 21 of each year, the World Poetry Day pays tribute to one of the most ancient and precious forms of expression and to the cultural and linguistic identities of humanity. Practiced throughout history - in every culture and every continent - poetry speaks to our humanity and our common values, transforming the simplest poems into a powerful catalyst for dialogue and peace.
The decision to proclaim World Poetry Day on March 21 was first adopted in 1999, on the occasion of the 30th session of UNESCO in Paris. The primary objective is to support linguistic diversity through poetic expression and increase the chances of languages ​​at risk of being heard.
World Poetry Day is an opportunity to honor the authors of poetry and to promote and practice reading, writing and teaching poetry, in particular by giving it greater visibility in the media. Poetry continues to bring people together across continents and generations.

Remembering, bringing the lives of people torn from their families back to the heart, realizing, in fact, a right to the name and the memory that has no "civil" but ethical, human, solidarity content: fundamental values ​​of a community capable of building a process of Memory.
For this reason, it was decided to celebrate the day through a social campaign. Through the web and social networks, all the innocent victims of the mafias were remembered, their stories, their names and our closeness to all the family members of the innocent victims of the mafias.
During the XXVa Day of Remembrance and Commitment, Saturday 21 March 2020 starting from 9 am, it was asked to create a flower, choose from the list on the VIVI website the name of an innocent victim of the mafias, take a picture and post it on social media.
