The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 for the year 2030. The SDGs are part of Resolution 70/1 of the United Nations General Assembly, the 2030 Agenda. The Corpo Italiano di San Lazzaro organized a public meeting in Rome about the connections among SDGs and disaster reduction, on 24th May 2019, mainly targeted to high school and university students. The meeting was kindly hosted in the Conference Room of the Headquarters of the City of Rome Police, and was included among the events of the “Week for Sustainability” (ASVIS national events calendar).
After the welcome and greetings of the national Commander of Corpo Italiano di San Lazzaro Prof. Antonio Virgili and of the Dr. Assumma Head of the Roman Group of CSLI Italia, have followed the short reports of:
Dr. Agostino Miozzo, Director of the Italian National Civil Protection Department; Eng. Paolo Clemente, Director of ENEA ( Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development); Ambassador Giorgio Bosco, President of the international Affairs Commission of LIDU; Dr. Maccari, Consultant for people with disabilities of the Italian National Civil Protection Department. This resulted in interesting reflections on strategies and nodal points of intersection between the objectives of the 2030 Agenda and the reduction of disasters.
