Descrizione del progetto:
Thanks to GrandUp! Energia Giovane per lo Sviluppo, high school students can become changemakers and change-activators, positively impacting the community in which they live. The knowledge acceleration program dedicated to schools provides innovative workshops where students finally learn by doing, collaborating and co-designing solutions while discovering and cultivating their inner talents and personal along the process.
The program aims to turn schools into open, dynamic ecosystems and places for project design,ready to tackle contemporary challenges related to education and develop ideas and solutions able to generate positive social impact. Through preliminary interviews with teachers and direct dialogues with students, each high school selects and defines the social challenge to be addressed during the program, with typical topics ranging from social inclusion to circular economy, as well as contrasting the negative effects of the hyper-communication and hyper-connection.
The project, promoted by Fondazione CRC and Cuneo Chamber of Commerce with SocialFare technical support, in 2018/19 will involve over 300 students living in the province of Cuneo and will be articulated into 9 learning-paths of 50 hours and 4 learning-paths of 25 hours.
