Who we are
The Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASviS) was established on February 3rd, 2016, upon the initiative of the Unipolis Foundation and the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. Its aim is to raise the awareness of the Italian society, economic stakeholders and institutions about the importance of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and to mobilize them in order to pursue the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Alliance already brings together almost 300 member organizations among the most important civil society institutions and networks, such as: associations representing social partners (businesses, trade unions and third sector associations); networks of civil society associations pursuing specific Goals (health, education, employment, environment quality, gender equality, etc.); associations of local public administrations; public and private universities and research centres; associations of stakeholders working in the fields of culture and information; foundations and networks of foundations; Italian organizations that are members of international networks dealing with the SDGs.
This website, the weekly newsletters and other mailings on specific topics provide thousands of readers and users with a continuous flow of information on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in Italy and worldwide, as well as on the results of ongoing research on issues related to the SDGs.
The Sustainable Development Festival represents one of the most important activities to raise the awareness about the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs.
