Green Sound Festival

The association of social promotion “LeMiriadi49” worked for realizing a Festival for environmental sensitization, the “Green Sound Festival” that will take place on 2010 August 25th at the Parco Gondar of Gallipoli, with the support of Legambiente and L.I.L.T. Lega Italiana per la Lotta contro i Tumori. During the event, it's planned a speech of the Dr. Giuseppe Serravezza, well known oncologist strongly committed in the fights for the right to health.

Philosophy of “LeMiriadi49”
The Association “LeMiriadi49” was born by the venture of a group of young people that decided to combine forces and minds to get common tasks. The name of the association is ispired to the code of the first degree course “ LM49” where the project started. The word “miriads” wants to suggest the idea of infinity: infinite unexpressed possibilities to develop, infinite relationships between people adding value to their social context through their work.
The space where “LeMiriadi49” works has, indeed, lost a merely geographical connotation, to become a relational space, dynamic think-tank of knowledge, that through the cooperation and the possible links in an ideal net, fosters Knowledge transfers inside and outside the territorial context, in such a way to increase the cultural and economical capital.
From the point of view of an improvement of the human lifestyle, of the producing activities, of the services and of the search for an optimal allotment of local resources, one of the tasks of the association and of the event is the diffusion and promotion of the culture of the responsible turism.
Concept of the Event: festival of environmental sensitizing based on the philosophy of the three “R”: Reduction ( of materials to use ), Re-use (new use of the materials through creativity), Recycle ( send the product on a right course of de-assembling and re-use of its components).
Kind of event: festival/concert in only one day, and parallel activities of creative laboratories, projections of photos and documentaries.
Specific tasks: sensitize the public about environmental issues.
