Paolo Veronese“We have always known that human and scientific progress arises from the ability to solve current and future problems: in evolutionary behaviors (symbiosis and mutualism), in the search for new treatments, as well as in thinking about models of dialogue in the global scenario,” says the President of the Umberto Veronesi ETS Foundation. Science for Peace and Health 2023 Conference examines the potential shown by science to find appropriate responses in cooperation and solidarity to threats affecting both natural organisms and complex human organizations.
“The Science for Peace and Health Conference has reached its fifteenth edition, in a year that also celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the Veronesi Foundation” – notes Alberto MartinelliVice-Rector of the Department of Science for Peace and Health and Professor Emeritus of Sociology and Political Science at the University of Milan – “The topic we have chosen, Conflict and Nonviolent Conflict Resolution Methods, represents a return to the origins and goals of the project that Umberto Veronesi wanted, starting with the nonviolent solution of wars and conflicts as a basic condition.” To successfully address other major global issues (poverty, inequality, disease, environmental degradation, economic crises), it is the responsibility of scientists to promote a culture of peace. In this edition we wish to find responses to implementing cooperation between science and policy makers.”
