Alongside economic factors, the quality of life is an important component of the attractiveness of a territory because it attracts individuals and companies, generating capital for development. The 2018 Family Festival wants to deepen this pair by analyzing the policies on family wellbeing with an international look. It is only through the comparison and exchange of good practices that good family support programs are born, the only subject able to guarantee to the community growth and social, cultural and economic development: “If the family grows, society grows”.
