New Humanism for the XXI Century

UNIVERSITY FOR FOREIGNERS OF PERUGIA – ITALY

 Conference theme and objectives

The UNESCO Chair on Water Resources Management and Culture, established in 2013 at the University for Foreigners in Perugia, Italy, organizes the 1st UNESCO WATER CHAIR MEETING in Perugia, Italy, from 24th to 26th October 2016.

The objectives of the meeting are:

  1. to discuss and identify contributions of the Chairs to the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development through independent but also joint projects
  2. to identify how the Chairs can increase their contribution to the implementation of the International Hydrological Programme for the current biennium (2016-2017) and the entire IHP-VIII phase (2014-2021)
  3. to define mechanisms to increase the cooperation between regional/similarly-themed Chairs, e.g. initiating the establishment of an information sharing system among all Water Chairs.

A further aim of the meeting is also to discuss and express opinions on the concept of the “New Humanism for the XXI Century” in Education, Culture and Science; in other words, an interdisciplinary approach addressing many of the current issues, including the achievement of water security and peace.
