The event, held at Università degli Studi Guglielmo Marconi premises, was arranged in a period of growing interest towards global challenges and was held in parallel to national and international initiatives: the Italian Festival for the Sustainable Development, the European Sustainable Development Week and the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development.

The attending teachers and trainers expressed their will to benefit from the blended course and to stay connected with the project’s staff and follow all developments.
