Codeway 2022 – Cooperation Development Expo, which connects institutions, NGOs and companies, will start from 18 to 20 May at Fiera Roma. Organized by Fiera Roma with the support of the Lazio Region, the Rome Chamber of Commerce and Unioncamere Lazio, the event was created as a meeting place for an articulated and dynamic world, such as that of international cooperation.
It is a platform, finally also physical, where the main protagonists of cooperation – public and institutional subjects, NGOs, companies and the private world – can get to know each other, discuss and reflect on the challenges. And above all, look at the sustainable development goals set in the 2030 agenda.
The partners include the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Ministry of Ecological Transition, the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation, the Italian-Latin American International Organization, Cdp, Simest, Anci, the Conference of Regions and Autonomous Provinces, The European House Ambrosetti and Enel Foundation.
Synergy between profit and non-profit
“The scope of the novelty – explained the coordinator Wladimiro Boccali – lies above all in focusing attention on the role that the company has and increasingly must have in the world of cooperation, a role made official with the law 125 of 2014. Codeway 2022 is designed to promote synergy between different universes such as profit and non-profit, with a view to developing a collaboration that brings benefits to the cooperation itself. It is shortsighted to think that first Covid and the war in Ukraine now take away the urgency of the need for international cooperation. Indeed, similar global crises show us incontrovertibly that we live in an increasingly interdependent and connected world ”.
Conferences and networking
Important issues of international cooperation will be addressed in the three days of conferences and debates in Rome. Such as food security and agri-food systems; education, high-level training and creation of professional skills; global health and health; twin transitions (ecological and digital).
