Rome [ENA] From February 23rd to 25th Matera, European Capital of Culture 2019 and first UNESCO site of Southern Italy, will present the first international Italian youth forum focusing on main UNESCO issues. The event is organized by the Italian Youth Association for UNESCO, set up in 2015 to assist the activities of the Italian National Commission, encouraging the active participation of youths and civil society

in initiatives and events organized at a national level. This event is part of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism’s actions of the 2018 European year of Cultural Heritage. Furthermore, in 2018 there are also the anniversary celebrations of the 50th Anniversary of Matera’s Sassi and Park of the Rupestrian Churches inscription in the UNESCO list. Young volunteers and members of our Committee, aged 18 to 35, will steer the three-day event during which they will share ideas, discuss, and plan new strategies for the enhancement, development, and awareness of the Italian cultural heritage.

The key speakers are UNESCO experts in “Diversity of Cultural Expressions” and experts from the public, cultural, and non-profit sector. The presence of Alex Giordano, Lecturer at the Department of Social Studies of The University of Naples Federico II, pioneer in 'social innovation', and anthropologist of innovation will be particularly interesting . In fact, he is credited as one of the most relevant experts on social innovation, sharing economy, social and technological innovation applied to food and agriculture, he also founded Ninjamarketing.it. The Forum will particularly focus on education, innovation, knowledge disclosure, and sustainable development, and it will lay the foundations for future growth and promotion.

Volunteers will have a reserved seat at these seminars as they will have the chance to know and experiment UNESCO Youth reality and campaigns. They will be an active part of a group of 300 members, including students, researchers, artists, professionals, managers, and entrepreneurs, who care about UNESCO issues and their application and dissemination among young people and on the territory.“2018 will be a turning point for our association – says President Paolo Petrocelli. Within 24 months after the establishment the Youth Committe, we have carried out numerous initiative and projects throughout Italy and have obtained a prestigious recognition by UNESCO Director-General. Now we are about to start a new phase: we have a new Statute,

and we elaborated a multi-year work program which is even more ambitious and revolutionary. So far we have worked as the Youth Committee of the Italian National Commission for UNESCO. Nevertheless, we are now ready to continue our journey with greater autonomy, striving for new goals. The Youth Committee” he explains “has evolved into the Italian Youth Association for UNESCO, the biggest youth Italian organization for UNESCO, officially UNESCO Secretariat in Paris. Matera event will be the first international forum promoted by our Association. Hundreds of young people will come together to talk about heritage, human rights, and future. We believe Italy can contribute to the promotion of universal values and ideals.
