UN-aligned & its Foundation
The world is changing rapidly; and so will our perception and fabric of life. Idealism is often used as a term of contempt, but creative people understand the power of imagination.
We need to visualise and formulate a better world in order to make it a reality. This is the essence of UN-aligned.
UN-aligned was created with the goal of uniting our globe by a federal world order, which is based on core principles of a shared humanity and a shared planet. It was this aim that united Adriano Liberto and Ariana Yekrangi to create this beacon of change in 2016.
I am a retired professor, having taught English in universities in China and Italy; however, I am keen on social welfare and for much of my life, I worked in England as a social services manager and trainer.
I am passionate about nature and the arts; for instance, when living in France, I owned a gallery and planted an acre of forest. I also enjoy writing and I am in the process of publishing my third book. UN-aligned meets my aspirations for a brighter and fairer future. If only it would catch on!
I am a Helsinki-based composer, guitarist and activist. I believe that a composer should be “consciously a human being“ and must have a gregarious attitude towards the society in which he lives in. For me, composition and activism is not merely a pleasure, but also a duty that I have within my community.
Forthcoming projects of mine include the short opera “Il velo e il basone” (the veil and stick), which intends to echo the voices of the girls of Enghelab street, a series of protests against the compulsory use of hijab in Iran. Outside of music, I enjoys politics, languages, and tennis.
