Transformative Education & Learning

Internationalism, excellence and diversity are the transversal elements that fuel our offer of transformative education & learning on social impact.

Transformative

means to develop individuals’ and organizations’ interpretative skills and capacity to change current reference models

Education

means to build new contents and languages key to support and design individual and social transformations

Learning

means to apply new modalities, practices and processes to engage individuals and organizations in the shaping of social impact culture

The UN’s 17 Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs) are the starting point for the transformational actions of the Cottino Social Impact Campus.

Cottino Social Impact Campus is a place where production and dissemination of social impact culture converge. Three factors drive our action:

Knowledge

Leadership

Entrepreneurship

Our goal: to build social impact culture by integrating transformative research, cutting-edge experimentation and scientific knowledge into a unique and distinctive offer.
An offer of advanced training for individuals and organizations, public and private, with diversified educational needs in relation to social impact, but facing the same challenge: to be part of the world-making effort to shape a more equitable and sustainable future.
