The primary objective of the conference is to disseminate the content of the book Earth for All: A Survival Guide for Humanity. This will be achieved through a scientific summary that highlights the key reasons for embarking on a “Giant Leap,” followed by a constructive debate among policymakers and experts. This inclusive discussion will involve participants from various sectors, including the business world. The aim is to explore possibilities and address critical issues to translate the report’s proposals into tangible actions. The conference seeks to inspire a renewed, decisive, and clear commitment from Italy and Europe on these pressing matters.

During the event, the position paper titled “The Giant Leap – New Global Policies to Address the Challenge of Our Time” will be presented. This paper, developed as part of the ASviS working group on Goals 6-14-15, provides a comprehensive overview of how to shift the economic paradigm and pursue policies aligned with the implementation of Agenda 2030.
