Conventus project with a stand at the Festival of Economy 2012
The Federation will present the Conventus project with a stand at the Festival of Economy 2012, an annual event that offers the opportunity to learn from national and international experts in economics who bring Trento to life with new opportunities for discussion and reflection, public meetings and cultural events.
This year the festival focuses on Life cycles and intergenerational transfers, and will take place in Trento and Rovereto on 31st May – 3rd June.
The multimedia stand Generations, schools & local territories, organized by the Federation in collaboration with other local partners, will feature the latest teaching and training methods used in the province as described by cooperative members, students, teachers and project leaders. Use of technologies and demonstrations will encourage interaction and experimentation to motivate learning, along with spaces created for debate and further study. The stand will focus on combining generations and dynamic forces organized in a network perspective: from cooperative education in the classroom to special projects linking schools to work; from activities involving people in the world of research to the daily activities of researchers and new non-formal approaches to education. It will offer opportunities to try out new-generation instruments for teaching and training, stemming from industrial research by cooperatives and local spin-off businesses.
The Federation has always had an active part in the Festival of Economy in order to promote and communicate cooperation to a wider audience, members and non-members alike. The Festival provides a pedestal to getting closer to the world of cooperation and offers visibility at local, national and international levels.
There should be an estimated 90,000 visitors arriving in Trento based upon numbers attending past editions.
