From Transition to Ecological Conversion

Share this event


Casacomune Scuola e Azioni, founded in 2019 by Gruppo Abele and Libera, is offering a day of reflection on the need for a true ecological “conversion”. An opportunity to think about an increasingly relevant issue and an attempt to activate processes that will lead toward a new way of living, consuming, and relating to others; ecological conversion should, in fact, be considered to impact the essence of the most important things, those that make us feel grateful for what we have and what surrounds us.

The title chosen for this initiative is intended to mark the first publication of the series I NIDI by Casacomune, edited by Luigi Ciotti and Mirta Da Pra and available as an insert in the magazine Lavialibera.

In addition to our usual loyal CinemAmbiente audience, the event is for anyone interested in learning more about the issues related to the social and environmental imbalances of our time. In particular, workers in the agricultural sector, environmentalists, teachers, lawyers, students, researchers, citizens in general, and all those who care about protecting the planet on which we live.

In addition to being an association dedicated to promoting science and culture, Casacomune is a school of training, cultural dialogue and social exchange, with active experiences in the field, designed to promote values and actions of sustainability and social justice. With special attention to spirituality and ethics, it communicates with people from different beliefs, cultures, and religions. The topics covered include the climate crisis, biodiversity, food, environmental migrants, and spirituality.
