Why

The aim of the Festival is to propose to broader audiences
possibilities of transformations, reflections and alternative
modalities to reframe environmental issues. In fact, knowledge
access and information flow are highly important as actual
environmental emergencies urge a radical change of perspective
and practices. The Festival for the Earth has an highly avantgarde
character that lays in its being an art project for social
transformation: the inventor and curator of the Festival for the
Earth, Maria Rebecca Ballestra, is an artist who aims to instigate
creativeness directed at positive transformation processes in
science, humanities, economy, ecology and art.
