Think tank, looking for Banksy. Workshop on our sustainable future
Whereas the identity of Banksy is still shrouded in mystery, his images - ironic, intelligent, audacious - tour the planet inviting everyone - poor and rich, educated and humble - to reflect on our present and the dream of a more just, more peaceful, more livable future: in short, a more sustainable future. Therefore, since sustainability has been a key objective over recent years, with 17 goals defined for the near future - here the correlation is spontaneous. These are the premises on which the MUS.E Association, with the UNESCO Office of the Municipality of Florence, is offering a workshop that will reflect on threats to our world and how everyone can make an individual contribution. As sustainability is the main focus of the AtlaS.WH project, this workshop allowed to deepen this theme with the local community. 

On Saturday 16 February young people and adults were invited to take part in an activity in which art and sustainability have been intertwined more than ever: after introduction to the themes of the 2030 Agenda and a tour of the exhibition, participants were able to highlight the many aspects connected to sustainability (social, environmental, economic, ethical) and directly develop images and objectives of a sustainable future, correlating them to their daily lives and taking home their goal: because " One cannot escape from the world with greater certainty than through art, and one cannot relate to it with greater certainty than through art "(Goethe). The 2030 Agenda is not only a document for large-scale institutions, "it is also an agenda for people, [...] an agenda for the planet, our common home "(Ban Ki-moon, former Secretary-General of the United Nations).
