“Basis of a new paradigm for social development, economy and politics”
The purpose of the seminar was to analyze the need of a paradigmatic change in these disciplines that helps to counteract the region’s social cohesion deficit and the value of the principle of fraternity to create these changes in theories and practices of economy, politics and social work.
The purpose of the School is training young people to acquire the necessary competencies to exercise citizenship more actively and to be committed to a more fraternal and united society.
The proposal is finalist in the “Global Junior Challenge 2006”, where it was chosen among 600 projects from all over the World on the use of ICT in education and the development of young people.
