HUMAN RIGHTS? #CLIMA – Edizione 2019

UNRIC Agenda 2030 says about the climate change: “Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, weather events are becoming more extreme and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is likely to surpass 3 degrees centigrade this century. The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most.
Affordable, scalable solutions are now available to enable countries to leapfrog to cleaner, more resilient economies. The pace of change is quickening as more people are turning to renewable energy and a range of other measures that will reduce emissions and increase adaptation efforts. Climate change, however, is a global challenge that does not respect national borders. It is an issue that requires solutions that need to be coordinated at the international level to help developing countries move toward a low-carbon economy.
To strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change, countries adopted the Paris Agreement at the COP21 in Paris, which went into force in November of 2016. In the agreement, all countries agreed to work to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees centigrade. As of April 2018, 175 parties had ratified the Paris Agreement and 10 developing countries had submitted their first iteration of their national adaptation plans for responding to climate change.”
AIAPI and Fondazione Campana dei Caduti intend to focus the 2019 edition of “HUMAN RIGHTS?” on this great problem that, for everybody, from a problem must become a solution.
The world belongs to all the people who live in it and will inhabit it and we all have enormous responsibilities for the future that we will leave to our children. We are all called to act, and act quickly, to change our habits. Let’s stop thinking “it’s not what I do in my small behaviour that pollutes the world”! Everyone, always, everywhere, we are all responsible.

Art can do a lot in this sense: it has the power to communicate with everyone, overcoming any barrier; has the strength to transmit strong images that anyone can understand; has the power to force us to reflect because if the narrative occupies relative spaces in the memory of the people, what instead passes through the view remains much more imprinted and is deposited in the conscience, even if unconsciously. More and more people are organizing to protest and raise awareness of society and those who govern us on these issues, on the extreme urgency of a change of course. Simply? We Artists are among those who want to warn of danger.
What artists are invited to do, therefore, is to shake up and invite them to reflect! HUMAN RIGHTS? by its very nature, it has always had this vocation to positive and proactive provocation, because even in this edition of this we are dealing with: provoking and being proactive at the same time, so as to shake people’s sensitivity with even intense vibrations, while transmitting at the same time a message and an invitation to “together we can.”
HUMAN RIGHTS? #CLIMA is a complex edition and AIAPI is aware that, as always, the artists know how to surprise with ideas that only creativity and freedom of thought can suggest. Art, with its great power helps us to reflect and act, is made clear and direct, accessible to everyone. This is the primary objective of AIAPI, which intends to ‘return’ art to the people, who now can live it with greater relaxation, with more intense involvement so as to feel part of a larger message. To the artists the task of speaking of great challenges. To the organizers, the Opera Campana dei Caduti Foundation and AIAPI, the complex but very interesting task of involving the best proposals among the many great talents from all over the world.

THE LOCATION
FONDAZIONE OPERA CAMPANA DEI CADUTI DI ROVERETO (Trento – Italy)

Rovereto houses on the hill the great bell of the fallen, Maria Dolens, perceived and desired by the priest of the city don Antonio Rossaro, right after the Great War, as eternal symbol of condemnation of the conflict, pacification of the consciences, of brotherhood among men, solidarity between peoples. Made from the bronze of cannons offered by the nations participating in the First World War, played the first toll on 4th October 1925 in the presence of King Vittorio Emanuele III.
During these years the bell has made its voice heard playing every night one hundred tolls of admonishment to life and to peace.
Statesman, Presidents and Ambassadors with citizens of each nations have honoured the bell and they continue to hear as a voice of own conscience.
94 Nations have exposing their flag around Maria Dolens, first name of the Bell, along the avenue of the Flags and in the Square of the People, to witness, visibly, the fidelity to a message, to a sort a “Peace’s Pact”.
18th January 1968, by a decree of the President of Republic, Giuseppe Saragat, born as moral entity the Fondazione Opera Campana dei Caduti. Among the Foundation’s finality, particular attention is given to the education of the new generations, to the peace culture, to the non-violence and to human rights.
