From 12 January to 8 March, the cultural pole “Marte” of Cava de’ Tirreni (Salerno) hosts the exhibition “Seeing is an action” with 34 display panels guiding visitors to reflect on the theme of sustainability of the 2030 Agenda and the role of schools in this sector (Corso Umberto I, 137).
The exhibition is organised by Marte Live in collaboration with Indire and Marevivo Onlus of Rome and builds on the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, a programme divided into 17 goals that 193 UN member states signed in New York in 2015 to trace a pathway towards a better and more sustainable future for all.
The goals concern the three dimensions of everyone’s life: economic, social and environmental, that can be summed up in the so called 5 Ps (People: to end poverty and hunger, in all their forms and dimensions, and to ensure that all human beings can fulfil their potential in dignity and equality and in a healthy environment; Planet: to protect the planet from degradation, including through sustainable consumption and production, sustainably managing its natural resources and taking urgent action on climate change, so that it can support the needs of the present and future generations; Prosperity: to ensure that all human beings can enjoy prosperous and fulfilling lives and that economic, social and technological progress occurs in harmony with nature; Peace: to foster peaceful, just and inclusive societies which are free from fear and violence. There can be no sustainable development without peace and no peace without sustainable development; Partnership: to mobilize the means required to implement this Agenda through a revitalised Global Partnership for Sustainable Development, based on a spirit of strengthened global solidarity, focussed in particular on the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable and with the participation of all countries, all stakeholders and all people).
The exhibition path is organised as a confrontation between images of the past coming from the Indire’s historical archive and contemporary images produced by teachers, with a view to suggest possible change, especially by the students, the curators of the future. The historical images of Indire’s archive are visual documents telling by analogy or contrast the relationship with the environment, society and economics and aim to trigger off reflection on the direction to undertake in relation to the goals of the 2030 Agenda. The current images result from some in person laboratories, carried out by Indire’s researchers where the teachers involved were asked to match a photography with one of the goals of the 2030 Agenda, relating to their disciplinary area.
The exhibition is conceived for students of all types and levels and exposes a variety of materials and contents that allow specific didactic approaches, starting from the most direct, playful and easy, addressed to children, to continue with a more structured one, rich with information for secondary school and university students.
There are also performed guided tours, thematic workshops with representatives of culture, universities and civil society, and matinée for schools, theatre shows on the themes dealt with in the exhibition.
