18 July 2016 [ English ] français ]

The second edition of the Social Cooperatives International School (SCIS2016) will be held in Naples (Italy) from 20 to 23 October 2016. The School, with a high entrepreneurial profile, is specifically addressed to cooperatives’ managers and will be a unique learning space, where theoretical discussions will be accompanied by exchanges on practical issues, allowing a mutual understanding among the participants and encouraging networking.

The Social Cooperatives International School is renewed this year after the successful editions held in Bertinoro (2014) and Milan (2015). Since last year, the School has become international, extending the participation to social co-operators from all over the world (watch here a video on the 2015 edition). In its 2016 edition, the School will focus on local development, partnership between social cooperatives and conventional enterprises (profit / non-profit) and financial instruments for the development of social cooperatives .CECOP’s Italian member Federsolidarietà – Confcooperative, the biggest federation of social cooperatives, organizes the event.

A specific seminar with Italian and International institutions will discuss the role of social cooperatives in “The challenge of migrations: policies, inclusion, and international development cooperation”. Participants will be asked to submit a project idea, four people will be selected to present and discuss their innovative project with Santo Versace, President of Gianni Versace.

The School expects to host 40 people, 20 of whom will be Italian and 20 from other countries. Candidates should fill the below form and send it to Valerio Pellirossi at Federsolidarietà (pellirossi.v@confcooperative.it) and also have transferred the registration fee for that date on 15 September 2016 at the latest.
