"Quality of life and territorial competitiveness: an international look. If the family well-being grows, society, economy and territory grow ": this is the title of the 7th edition of the Family Festival, which will be held in Trento from 3 to 9 December 2018. It is promoted and organized by the Provincial Agency for the family, birth and youth policies and will have the patronage of the Department for Family Policies of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers. Scheduled over 20 events in 7 days organized in partnership with various public and private bodies and stakeholders of the Agency. On Monday 3 December the inaugural event will be held at the Social Theater.

The seventh edition of the Family Festival leaves the regional and national borders to activate the comparison and exchange of good practices with other companies in the sector. From 3 to 9 December, we await a week of events, conferences and seminars to give voice to national and European family welfare policies. Outside the national borders there are different models of public policies and different Organizations that in various capacities and roles - including in the private and non profit sector - plan and promote actions aimed at the wellbeing of the family: a mix of actors and measures to respond to a constantly evolving society with different needs and different models of family organization and work-life balance. The central theme of the Festival will be the relationship between quality of life and territorial competitiveness.

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".

The inaugural event will be held on Monday 3 December, in the afternoon, at the Social Theater of Trento and will kick off a carousel of events and seminars sharing the theme "Quality of life and territorial competitiveness: an international look. If family well-being grows, society, the economy and the territory grow ". The event is promoted and organized by the provincial Agency for the family, birth and youth policies and will be sponsored by the Department for Family Policies of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers.
