CITTASLOW SUNDAY  24th September 2023 

14th International Day of Good Living

Cittaslow International organizes an international event to promote, across the world, concepts and projects which represent the reality and the idea of being Cittaslow. Cittaslow Int'l, establishes the world Cittaslow Day to spread the word about us.

On this day every year all Cittaslow can propose and organize one or more  of their own local initiatives in order to promote and disseminate the concepts of our collective action.

We have to respect and love the Earth, our Mother Earth, as Carlo Petrini asserts, and this is possible if everyone realizes the Cittaslow projects, day by day, all of us – mayors of Cittaslow towns, citizens and visitors, entrepreneurs and policy makers –  by making one’s contribution to a cleaner, better, fairer world.

The issues are the same as Cittaslow confronts: environmental policies (energy, transport – bicycle and pedibus, climate change, use and defence of the soil, enhancement of the landscape, biodiversity, etc.), social policies (inclusion, social responsibility, education, identity, etc.), agriculture and local produce Cittaslow Markets, etc.), sustainable tourism, citizens’ awareness of being a positive counter-culture, even more necessary nowadays, when the crisis of the system of fuel, food and finance is linked to another crisis of relations, values and the prospects of quality of life of the future generations.

Cittaslow future is our perspective for the mayors, the citizens of the 291 associated Cittaslow, scattered in 33 different countries. Cittaslow Future is the proposal for a positive contamination that, through the little Cittaslow, engages the big metropolises and the entire society, with positive effects on the overall ecologic imprint of global human activities.

On Sunday 24th September 2023, every Cittaslow of our movement should introduce its own programme of at least one event on the theme Cittaslow, to be organized on their own territory.

The events are totally organized and financed at local level  but receive support from Cittaslow International (web portal, blog, International press agency, publications, graphic design, etc.). The events organized can vary according to the possibilities and the experience available to each Cittaslow.
