IED CALLS FOR PEACE
IED strongly believes that education and design are essential instruments aimed at promoting the development of human characteristics through open-mindedness, creativity, and the capacity to imagine multiple scenarios for the future.
As these skills are in opposition to any kind of warfare, the Istituto Europeo di Design condemns any act of violence that threatens the peace, the rule of law, and human rights for all. War and hatred constitute the greatest crimes against one of the most fundamental rights that every person possesses: the right to life. With its community of international students and lecturers, IED is an example of global integration. The Institute was founded on the belief that a “people’s world” was inclusive, sustainable, supportive, and united, where hate and war had no place.
This is why, as a consequence of this dramatic situation, we stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian people as well as those who are still suffering abuse and violence at the hands of others.
