The ongoing debate on the limits of the neoliberal development model, made evident with the economic-financial crisis which exploded in 2008, led in 2015 to the creation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals contained in the UN 2030 Agenda. Sustainability, now also on the agendas of multinational companies, seeks to reconcile the economic and social-environmental spheres. The more we analyze the conditions needed for real social and environmental sustainability, the more it emerges that it cannot be decreed from above, but rather depends on individuals and intermediate bodies truly capable of creating and innovating. It is for this reason that the need to rediscover the link between development, sustainability and subsidiarity arises.
