During the open event, Education and Innovation for a Sustainable Future, participants will meet several international speakers who have contributed to building awareness within their communities and
taken steps towards positive change.

At 4 p.m., the first part of the event "Human Library" will take place. Four international speakers will share their stories of overcoming challenges, growing and initiating projects, working to bridge the gap between the current situation and where we want to be to achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Agenda through education and innovation. Participants will receive a free copy of "Fairy Tales for a Fairer World",a collection of traditional tales from around the world with a new twist and a reminder of how the 17 Global goals can guide us to the sustainable future we hope for.

At 6 p.m., an "Education and Innovation Talk" will take place. Three speakers active in the domains of education and in organizations for the protection of children will share their experiences and their work and their visions of the future, and what measures we can undertake to achieve it.
