Giving back day 2024-Wanting for the future: the challenge of solidarity

On Thursday, April 18, 2024 , a day of restitution was held at the Blue Room in Fuligno (FI). Students from 6 educational institutions - the Giovanni XXIII Institute of Terranuova Bracciolini (AR), the Galileo Galilei Technical Institute (AR), the Gramsci Scientific High School (FI), the Machiavelli Institute (FI), the Balducci Pontassieve Institute (FI), and the Galileo Galilei Scientific High School (SI) - accompanied by their teachers, illustrated their 29 projects, arousing interest, participation, and emotion as they recounted their experiences.

The centerpiece of the day was an audio-video link from Jerusalem with Father Ibrahim Faltas, a class of students from Jerusalem and two teachers from the Terra Sancta School. The students confronted each other, asked questions about the difficult situation those populations are experiencing-a serious and constructive dialogue that found a climax in the monologue recited in Italian by a Terra Sancta School student.

Bringing greetings to the day were Lorenzo Pierazzi, technical director of the Tuscany school board; Andrea Bottinelli, president of the John Paul II Foundation; and Maurizio Certini, director of the "Giorgio La Pira" International Student Center.

The day ended with the announcement of the winners and the final buffet.
