Organizations and individuals interested in building a better, fairer, more sustainable and more inclusive future, need to become part of a new knowledge-building effort where social impact driven contents are the core of a new transformative cultural framework, well beyond the traditional professional training currently available.

Transformative means a culture that can enable a person to develop his/her ability to interpret and act in ways that aim at changing current reference models.

To contribute to the world-making effort of interpretation and creation of a new systemic sustainability, we need new instruments, languages and practices, referred to the the most advanced social impact thoughts and experimentations. A new education & learning offer aggregating individuals and organizations that are already contributing to the development of a global vision aligned with a social impact mission.

Experts, academics, practitioners, researchers, policy-makers and businessmen converge on the Campus to share their thoughts, know-how and experiences, building new ecosystems and thought leadership to interpret the challenge of social impact culture.

Social impact culture to shape a new vision of the world and the skills we need to build it

Cottino Social Impact Campus is the place of world-makers for social impact, powered by the cutting-edge entrepreneurial action of Fondazione Cottino

Only a social capacity with renewed competencies can aim at bringing people together to tackle the challenge of a more sustainable and inclusive future.

Our mission is to sustain and reinforce the capacity of communities, organizations and individuals with new, advanced professional skills relevant for social impact, envisioning a future that is sustainable, inclusive and fair.

Cultural change occurs through learning and exposure to new theoretical and practical contents and experiences, successful and unsuccessful, national and international: that is the founding vision of Cottino Social Impact Campus. Thanks to the entrepreneurial and illuminated approach of a unique philanthropist, Mr. Giovanni Cottino, Turin, where the Campus is located, becomes the European hub of advanced education on social impact, activating and pooling together national and international experts and academics.
