What role globalisation plays in mutating life of rural areas nowadays? How to re-create some space for the spirit of sharing, of collaboration, taking care of each other and nature and spiritual values in general?

What is it about?

/Learning how to appreciate and share ones own local culture and identity through stories and performances, but also how to approach them critically and see a future potential for development and personal opportunities;

/Gaining some practical skills from locals (pizza making, best practise exchange etc.);

/Exploring nature and inner peace;

/Building a totem as a symbol of  cultural identity through learning responsibility and collaboration,  exploring democracy values.

/Preparing to share views and meet inspiring realities: on a open event participants presented their totem to Casa Viticonti, community of people with disabilities supported by A Ruota Libera Onlus, and had an opportunity to learn about borgo sociale, a great example of social space riqualification based on solidarity and inclusion.
