Theme
Today, not only in Europe, but in Japan, South America, Africa and throughout the world, the architectural cultural heritage that we call the “Modern Movement” (MoMo) has been exposed to the major force of conscious/unconscious destructions.
We can trace the causes to three reasons:
1: Popular ignorance regarding the MoMo
2: Self-vulnerability of MoMo
3: Skepticism towards MoMo ideology

Hence why , we are embarking on a mission to mitigate these three elements of threat which are endangering the MoMo.
We are calling for, not only, those experts who are directly and indirectly connected to the movement, but all the people interested in the protection of the MoMo in a renewed future, to come together to offer knowledge and experience.
There are also three types of knowledge that we must collect from the global community.
From the experts:
1. Knowledge of relativization and reinterpretation;
2. Technology, methodology and policy to revitalize the value and the vitality of the MoMo.
And, from the adults gathered around the experts and the children who will carry our world towards the future:
3. Knowledge of education and enlightenment.

More details will be presented soon.
In the meanwhile, save the date!
