The Global March for Human Rights is one of the activities planned within the European project Walk the Global Walk, promoted by the Tuscany Region and Oxfam Italia Intercultura and co-funded by the European Union. The project connects local authorities, and regional and local communities (school communities and civil society organisations) from 11 European countries: Italy, France, Croatia, Cyprus, UK (Wales and Scotland), Portugal, Greece, Romania, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Albania.

In the spirit of the project, which promotes dialogue between different cultures, the march takes place in the center of Florence: departure from Piazza d’Azeglio, passages near the places of worship of the various religions (Synagogue of via Farini, Islamic prayer hall of borgo Allegri) and arrival in Piazza Santa Croce, where the event will be closed by a short show. The march is expected to involve around 1,500 boys and teachers from middle and high schools in Tuscany who have joined the other activities of the project.
