International cooperation, peace, solidarity and human rights

The Municipality of Modena strongly believes in the cooperation with communities that is carried out in collaboration with local authorities and associations, in a clear distinction of the roles even if collaboration is a keystone and in giving value to the characteristics and skills of everyone.

In particular, the Bureau for European projects, international relations and coordination of strategic projects focuses on:

  • Implementing information and training activities, raising awareness about the topic "international cooperation". These actions are addressed to associations, schools and citizens;
  • Supporting the cooperation projects for the development of the associations located in Modena in collaboration with the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio of Modena;
  • Coordinating the Coordination Board of the different associations involved in the international cooperation, giving value and boosting  the activities carried out by the associations of Modena;
  • Promoting and raising awareness about the following topics: cooperation, peace, solidarity and rights.

Among the other activities, the Course for Volunteers of International Cooperation plays a leading role. The first edition took place in 2006.

Another important activity is the project related to the educational itineraries called "Modena chiama Mondo". It aims at raising awareness among students about the international cooperation and solidarity.
