Solidaria, the volunteer service festival of Padua and Rovigo, is back
The fifth edition of Solidaria, the festival organised by the CSV – Volunteer Service Center of Padua and Rovigo, in collaboration withthe municipalities of Padua and Rovigo, will be held from 17 September to 2 October 2022.Created to spread and promote the culture of solidarity and volunteering in our area, the event is sponsored by the University of Padua.
This year’s backdrop for the many initiatives and events planned is the theme of “desire”: the desire for change, the desire for social justice, the desire for inclusion, the desire for peace, in short, the desire for a more equitable and healthy World. Hence, a simple word that also encloses a feeling shared by the entire community.
Consistently with this objective, a wide selection of conferences, seminars, music and drama performances, workshops and book presentations will be organised, totalling about 40 events.This will offer the whole community an opportunity to learn about the scene of local volunteer associations, as well as to reflect on and explore, from different points of view, major contemporary issues, with a view to increasing among the citizens an increasingly active and responsible participation that will allow them to take care of our Planet, our “common home,” thus implementing a concrete and effective change.
The event will open with the Rovigo Volunteer Service Festival on Saturday, 17 September, and close with the Volunteer Service Festival in Padua on Sunday, 2 October.
