International School on Migration. Making the transition toward sustainability just and equal for all.
The social, economic and environmental dimensions of the green era.

Why take part?

After three successful editions, to which around 400 people from more than 40 countries have applied and more than 150 participants have been selected, the 2021 edition will focus on how to make the transition toward sustainability just and inclusive for everyone, analyzing its social, economic and environmental dimensions.

Training sessions will focus on four principal broad topics, which will be the starting points for further discussion between participants and lecturers.

This year, the International School will focus on:

  • The global perspective of the transition toward the 2030 Agenda;
  • Work and training as tools for social inclusion in the environmental transition;
  • Local authorities as agents of change of environmental and social fragility;
  • The business sector as an engine of social and environmental change.

The 2021 edition of the International School is organized within the project Snapshots from the Borders, co-funded by the European Union.
