XXIII WEEK OF ITALIAN LANGUAGE IN THE WORLD CONTEST
ITALO CALVINO AND THE THEME OF SUSTAINABILITY
2023 celebrates two special concurring events: In October, the 23rd edition of the “Week of Italian Language in the World” will focus on the theme of “Italian and Sustainability.” The selected theme aligns with the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and the bid for EXPO 2030 Rome (People and territories. Regeneration, inclusion, and innovation). In addition, 2023 also marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of the renowned Italian author Italo Calvino. In recognition of Italy’s position at the forefront of environmental issues in the world, we therefore propose a creative contest for K-12 students that combines these two events. Our goal is to promote a culture of sustainability as expressed through the Italian language.
The contest is open to the students who attend Italian classes in the States of California, Texas, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Washington, Oregon, Utah, and Hawaii, from Kindergarten to High School (K-12).
