Imagine if Cagliari was the place where we could together dream up a brighter future?
Picture the magnificent lands perched atop cliffs with the sea beneath them. They stand as vibrant crossroads of diverse cultures, echoing centuries-old narratives of dialogue and exchange. What if from there we could co-design solutions to the challenges of our increasingly complex and globalized world? A world that, now more than ever, yearns to rediscover its authenticity and reimagine its future.
The challenge of Organizing for the Good Life , the general theme of the 39th EGOS Colloquium, is to collectively understand how we can build a better world and a better life, by weaving together our historical roots with the boundless possibilities of our collective imagination.
From conference to everyday life — the leap is short, and EGOS Colloquium has rapidly evolved into a platform of opportunities for the entire city of Cagliari: envisioning itself as a welcoming, authentic, and sustainable destination, where international conferences like EGOS can take place. We want to share with the world a lifestyle centered on well-being, sustainability, inclusivity, and best practices.
We have named this project Good Life for all because the concept of a good life encompasses a multitude of themes and is meant for everyone. Mirroring the multifaceted nature of sustainability, encompassing environmental, social, and economic dimensions, this project harmonizes with the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The site you are visiting is a laboratory of storytelling
constantly evolving to tell this great shared project.

WHAT DOES GOOD LIFE FOR ALL MEAN?
Good Life goes beyond the concept of a mere good life; it is a better life comprised of good practices that benefit everyone.It is a life that extends beyond the individual, encompassing a complex social system built on a sustainable development model where the environment is respected and there is room for all. These principles are guided by three fundamental values:
The foundation for a development that ensures the fulfillment of the current generation's needs without compromising the ability of future generations to fulfill their own.
The fundamental principle that fosters a sense of belonging, enabling everyone, regardless of their gender, health, economic or social status, to be an integral part of a greater whole.
The state of physical, mental, and social health that ensures individuals attain a state of balance, both within themselves and in their relationships with others, fostering self-awareness and empathy.
WHAT WE WILL DO IN PRACTICE:
Drawing inspiration from the values of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development we have established a strong network of partners, including researchers, institutions, companies, and non-profit organizations.Together, we have developed an innovative, sustainable, and inclusive model of community engagement that will serve as the foundation for hosting the EGOS event. Through a series of diverse actions, we aim to bring these values to life and create a meaningful impact on the territory.
