INVITATION BY PRESIDENT FAUSTO SAVOLDI, CNGeGL
I'm particularly glad to address to You this invitation to the thirty-fifth Working Week that will take place in Rome, from the 6th to the 10th of May in 2012. Italy and the Italian Surveyors want to talk to You about the universally-spread values that constitute the basis of our being together: human rights protection, environmental preservation, respect for the identity and the culture of everyone, and, last but not least, solidarity among the Nations and the different generations. It's according to these values that we chose the subject of our Italian Working Week: "Knowing to manage the territory, protect the environment, evaluate the cultural heritage". The CNGeGL delegation at the FIG Working Week in Marrakech was particular numerous, and most of its members are young people. They are all active in different FIG Commissions and truly embody the idea of "Young Surveyor". These young people represent the future and will assure the continuity of our Category and of the FIG. It will be up to them to make you visit the artistic treasures in Rome and to let you know a culture that contributed so much to the creation of our modern society. Knowledge is the true and precious condition able to bring education to beauty, to a correct management of the environment, of the territory and of the cultural heritage. Therefore, the theme of the FIG Working Week is focused on this particular topic meant to live in the respect of the present human generation and, above all, of the future one. The Italian Surveyors look forward to meeting their colleagues coming from all the world in 2012!
