What we have done, what we shall do

  • In 2003 the Garden of the Righteous Worldwide, dedicated to the exemplary figures of moral resistance, was set up on Monte Stella Hill of Milan upon Gariwo proposal. We have created other memory places in Italy and worldwide. Now we want to create new ones – after creating those of Warsaw (2014), Neve Shalom Wahat el Salam (2015), Tunis (2016) and the one in Jordan (2017) - and redesign the one of Milan as a place for encounter and dialogue.
  • On 10 May 2012 the European Parliament welcomed the Gariwo's call to established 6 March as the European Day for the Righteous. Every year on 6 March we celebrate their example all over Europe thanks to a network of supporters, which we are seeking to enlarge to spread everywhere the values of responsibility, tolerance and solidarity. Upon Gariwo initiative, a law proposal for the recognition of 6 March as Day of the Righteous of the Humanity is being discussed at the Parliament.
  • With educators, scholars and associations we develop pathways for the schools of every grade. We have created a kit with a game and a comic strip about the Righteous, DVDs and further insights divided into themes, for a dynamic and innovative teaching technique. We aim at distributing a sample of our kit in every classroom of the Italian school system and involving an increasing number of students in our teaching project Adopt a Righteous, which entails also guided tours to the Garden of Monte Stella Hill and a national contest awarding the best artistic and literary works on the Righteous.
  • We have realized the Virtual Garden of the Righteous to broaden as much as possible the spreading of their message, bu dedicating a tree to every person who was able to respond to the call of his or her conscience by performing deeds of moral resistance and civil courage. The use of new technologies enables us to provide mainly the young people with knowledgeable tools to reflect on the past history and the present. Our purpose is to increase dialogue with the users, update the documents at our disposal and build new virtual spaces.
  • Over the years we held meetings with Righteous people, witnesses and artists, as well as congresses, book presentations, seminars with the teachers. We have launched the Charter of responsibilities 2017, that arose from the collective reflection proposed by Gariwo through the conference series The crisis of Europe and the Righteous of our time, organized in cooperation with the Franco Parenti Theatre. Through this document, drawing inspiration from Charta 77, we wish to riaffirm the values of plurality and non violence against the culture of hate and enmity. We need your help to go on…
  • In 2017 we launched GariwoNetwork, the network that connects all those who are involved in the spreading of the message of the Righteous, from teachers to associations, to the representatives of the Gardens of the Righteous. We started from 80 Gardens in Italy and around the world and over 500 teachers. This is just the beginning, to enlarge the network and reach new realities we count on your help...
