the first European festival on creativity

2022 Programme

Event #1

Filippo Grandi

The movement of the last

Some people have to move to save their lives: war, violence, persecution and discrimination oblige them to leave everything behind and go into exile. A hundred million refugees have already crossed borders or have been looking for a safer place. On their way they mix to the even larger streams of people moving for various reasons: poverty, climate change, the dynamics of demography, a bad government, or just the dream of a better life. They can rely on unprecedented paths and tools, from mobile phones to efficient traders. Yet they have to take extremely dangerous routes – deserts and seas that became the cemetery of runaway people and refugees; and again wars, violence, persecution; and very often, when they finally reach their destination, they find themselves outside the closed doors of rich people who refuse them, as well as governments imposing restrictive measures just to win the elections. The world has never been moving so fast, yet moving has never been so difficult and complex for poor people. However, millions of Ukrainians escaping from their besieged, bombed, occupied cities have been welcomed with efficient and human measures: was it a political exception or rather a well-conducted operation from which we have to draw inspiration to better face one of our global challenges?
