Also this year the appointment takes place simultaneously with the national event "Regions, cities and territories for sustainable development", scheduled in Genoa.

Taking a cue from the theme addressed in the Ligurian capital – the Aurban and regional gendes for sustainable development e the territorialization of the objectives of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs) – the public meeting in Asti intends to continue the study of the specificities of the Internal Areas, territories that are just as strategic as the Metropolitan Areas for the harmonious and sustainable growth of the Country System.

The purpose of the initiative is to encourage interactions and promote the exchange of knowledge between stakeholders of the territory - the world of research and training, the world of production and investment, institutions, associations, professionals and citizens - and to strengthen the local collaborative network, a fundamental subject for contributing, together with theItalian Alliance for Sustainable Developmentto the achievement of sustainable development goals.
