FEDERATION ANNA LINDH ITALIA - ONLUS

The Federazione Anna Lindh Italia, not-for-profit, shares the aims of the Anna Lindh Foundation: created in 2004 by the European Commission together with the 42 Euro-Mediterranean countries.
The Federation's objective is to promote, support and implement the cultural and social interaction between Italy and the Euro-Mediterranean countries in various fields of action including: art, architecture, archaeology, environment, crafts, youth, women, human rights, migrants, crafts, employment, training, education, education, childhood, sports, interreligious dialogue, legality, music, food culture, empowerment, tradition, tourism, social solidarity, exchanges.
In particular, the Federation intends to implement initiatives in favour of young people, especially aimed at restoring their hope and confidence through the promotion of the "true",the "beautiful" and the "good”

The Fondazione Mediterraneo, in the wake of its thirty-year concrete action and the project of the UNITED STATES OF THE WORLD, has launched a heartfelt appeal to the Ministers of the Environment of the countries participating in the G20 in Naples to intervene immediately for a drastic turnaround: "it is the serious risk of leaving the planet no longer suitable for man - said President Capasso - and our children and grandchildren will find themselves a dying land, destroyed by ourselves. Without the agreement to halve CO2 emissions by 2030 and without the definitive abandonment of the use of coal, any proposal appears useless.
In this way - continues Capasso - the goal of keeping the planet's temperature increase within 1.5 ° is unattainable because to respect that limit it is absolutely necessary to halve CO2 emissions by 2030 to zero them by 2050: this irresponsible decision takes place precisely when the climate crisis hits various countries with extreme events, from Germany to Belgium and then Canada, China and so on for a long list. The Fondazione Mediterraneo - concludes President Capasso - since 1989 with the proposal of the UNITED STATES OF THE WORLD has warned about the dangers deriving from a wicked use of the earth and creation. If the main countries of the world do not converge on serious commitments it will be impossible to prevent even more catastrophic consequences”.
Previously, President Capasso during a press conference had on the one hand appreciated the agreement - which resulted after "a very long and intense negotiation" and announced by the Italian Minister for Ecological Transition Roberto Cingolani at the Royal Palace in Naples together with John Kerry , envoy of the American government - on the other hand expressed the strong disappointment for the lack of ambition with the block on the issue of decarbonization by "less ambitious" countries that would continue to refuse binding commitments on the indispensable acceleration of this process. Aiming for a grade and a half and decarbonisation within the decade saw the opposition of India and China and therefore the discussion was postponed to October when the G20 of heads of state and government will be held in Rome.

The MAMT Peace Museum celebrated the "Sunday of the sea" with the celebration of the Holy Mass dedicated to the migrants who died in the sea. Previously, homage was paid to the "TOTEM DELLAPACE" with the urn of the unknown migrant in the port of Naples.
Every year, 11 July is an opportunity to remember the 1.7 million workers of the maritime industry, but also the many chaplains and volunteers of the "Stella Maris" who continue to offer their support, at every latitude.
"The world has stopped, but ships have never stopped carrying medical equipment and essential medicines from one port to another to support the fight against the spread of the virus", recalled Cardinal Peter K.A. Turkson, Prefect of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, in the message for the day.
The Day was born in England in 1975 on the initiative of the Apostolate of the Sea, the Mission to Seafarers and the Sailors' Society, but then took on an international and ecumenical dimension. In Italy it was celebrated in a particular way in Savona, with the Holy Mass broadcast live on RaiUno and on the large video walls of the Museum.
Pope Francis, in the Angelus from the Gemelli Hospital, recalled the importance of the sea as a place of solidarity and love
.
On this occasion, the Fondazione Mediterraneo sent a letter to the Minister for Ecological Transition professor Roberto Cingolani requesting the establishment of a "control room" for an integrated governance of issues related to the sea and the development of targeted strategies for its protection.

Yemen, the most serious humanitarian crisis of our time.
The country is exhausted and the suffering suffered by the population has reached levels never seen before. The figures speak for themselves: 20.7 million people need humanitarian aid to survive.
Over 4 million people have been forced to flee their homes and are now displaced within national borders.
The escalation of the conflict has led to a dramatic increase in the prices of food and other raw materials.
Consequently, the main problem right now is the lack of food: around 16 million people suffer from hunger.
In some areas of the country, about 1 in 4 children suffer from acute malnutrition
.

On the occasion of the “International Refugee Day” at the Museum of Peace MAMT, the Mediterranean Foundation commemorated 30 years of activity in favor of migrants and refugees. Many students from Neapolitan schools and the province - in compliance with the COvid 19 rules - visited the “Voices of Migrants” route and commented on the most touching and moving testimonies.
President Michele Capasso said:

"This Day is more heartfelt than ever due to the arrival in Italy of many refugees from Syria, Eritrea, Somalia and Ethiopia in transit to other European countries in search of a future. People fleeing wars and persecutions who bring their life here, to have a life. The stories of refugees belong to our culture and for this reason the MAMT Peace Museum has created an emotional journey dedicated to them: not to forget! ”.
