NOTICE OF PARTICIPATION
Art 1. THEME – WHAT UNITS US: breaking down walls to build bridges
Today we live in a time of profound crisis and change, but the direction that this transformation is taking is not clear.
It is a complex historical period, where the tyranny of money and violence seem to color every corner of the Earth black. An era in which the “we” is increasingly difficult to identify and the reigning individualism ends up making us feel alone, divided internally and without strength to fulfill our aspirations. Every day the media tell us stories of violence and frustration, where those who are “different” from us can only be a threat or danger to our lives. Block after block, this diversity is exploited to raise walls and barriers destined to move us further away from each other.
They have accustomed us to fear in the other what makes it different from us, rather than to seek what we have in common.
But it is only by reconciling ourselves and with those around us, only by looking with other eyes towards the Human Being, only by recognizing what unites us, that we can finally break down these walls and make them bridges.
To this end, with the third edition of HUMAN, we invite you to tell us what unites us to finally overcome mistrust and prejudice.
