WORKING AREAS
Using verbs, words that denote actions, seems to us the best way to describe our training [COURSES]. They manage, in fact, by their nature, to connect reasoning and action. We have chosen five verbs: reading, meeting, planning, managing and participating.
Reading Texts and Contexts in evolution: courses facilitate understanding and analysis of contexts in terms of geographical, historical, political as well as literary and cultural aspects. The intended audience is: students, practitioners, teachers, and citizens interested in international development issues.
Meeting the Other and the Elsewhere: courses aim to bring international development close to young people and students as well as to all concerned citizens by promoting awareness of issues and tools and facilitating contact with individuals, institutions and organisations active locally and internationally. Courses integrate classroom teaching and field experience.
Planning Instruments and Meanings: courses seek to strengthen knowledge and skills of project planners and managers employed by associations, social enterprises, educational institutions and non-profit organisations that design and implement development projects locally and internationally.
Managing Complexity: courses seek to build the capacity of people employed by organisations (associations, local authorities, institutions) in managerial roles and that are responsible for planning, strategic management and coordination of people, projects and resources.
Participating as Active Citizenship: meetings, exhibitions , film festivals and study days that represent opportunities to stop , even for brief moments , and to circulate thoughts and reflections. The knowledge of the Other is built not only with the participation in training but also through various forms of artistic expression
