What is it about?
Life for Flying originated in 2003 following the disappearance on the road of two seventeen-year-old boys of Verzuolo, Fabrizio and Mattia. Families and their friends have chosen to unite and create this event to remember their lives and make sense to ours lives. Despite the deaths, in this event it was decided not to talk about death and blood, but to exalt life and its values, joyfully remembering our friends.
Through the sport of which these guys were passionate: ping pong, volleyball, table football and running race, an opportunity was created to meet other young people from the Saluzzo area and create moments of play and reflection with them.
Even today this event gives the opportunity to hear Fabrizio, Mattia and all the other victims of the road closer, even if only for a couple of days.
Every year the issue of road safety and healthy fun has been addressed in various aspects, from speed to alcohol abuse to reach young people year after year. Also thanks to this event, in the area there was a notable decrease in road accidents among young people, but the problem unfortunately still persists.
Over the years the objective has therefore become to restore value and perfume to life itself through games, sports, union, friendships, prayer, narrations and reflections.
The Life 2.0 19 will take place in Verzuolo (CN) in “Road Safety Square” on 31 May - 1 - 2 June 2019.
This year we want to help young people, and not only them, to live the message of Life in everyday actions: making road safety their lifestyle. Therefore we have chosen to make young people aware of the awareness of the consequences that their choices could have on themselves and on others. In fact we decided to go back to taking care of the choices made
by the driver during the driving act, really certain driving attitudes cannot be postponed for a few minutes when the car is no longer in motion?
How funds will be used
The entire harvest will be used for organizing the event, for educational activities and for renting the marquee, service, stage and various sports equipment.
Who's behind the project?
The heart of Life 2.0 is a voluntary social association: Segnal'etica, a group of 30 young people from the Saluzzo area, driven by the awareness that it is easier to transmit values between peers than between distant generations.
Segnal'etica ONLUS is an association that has worked to promote road safety among young people through the organization of events (first of all “Life 2.0”), through awareness-raising interventions in schools.
• Segnal'etica wants to be a path of recovery of joy through the sharing of an ethics of well-being based again on man;
• Segnal'etica wants to recover and enhance, making them usable, the ethical paths that our City Hall and our Parishes have already created and managed for us over the years;
• Segnal'etica wants to collect the possible signals/actions to stimulate administrators and ourselves to improve the quality of life in our territory;
• Segnal'etica wants to be pro/positive for all of us through the promotion of support, information and animation activities being aware that in times of hardship “the real catastrophe is that everything continues as before” W. Benjamin;
• Segnal'etica wants to take photos/scratch our town to stimulate us to look at the territory in which we live as a possible habitat that can be improved by life and not as an environment imposed on us to suffer;
• Segnal'etica aims at working to ensure that multi-ethnic coexistence, to which we are called in this century, is an occasion for increasing social well-being by sharing the words of K. Adenauer: "We all live under the same sky, but we do not all have the same horizon" which invite us to respect the uniqueness of man and social solidarity.
