" Promoting education for the development of the individual within the community"
Italy’s education system falls short in certain curricular areas and teaching aspects. Notably, certain subjects that are key to the development of the individual and progress of society are still neglected.
Fondazione Cariplo has identified four areas - science and technology, performing arts, the environment and intercultural education - and planned a long-term, comprehensive action for each of them to help improve and advance education.
The overarching goal of Action Plan 1 is improving knowledge and skills of younger generations as well as their ability to translate theoretical notions into concrete behaviors, focusing on certain areas that so far have been set aside in mainstream education. This objective is closely linked to the more specific target of improving quality of primary and secondary education.
