Marginal neighbourhoods in Italy’s urban areas are full of neglected potential. Working with youngsters in high schools, we seek to transform these ‘periferie’ in ‘poliferie’: thriving communities rich in opportunities.

MISSION

PERIFERIE POLIFERIE

Neighbourhoods on the margins of urban areas are increasingly left behind, while wealth in city centres grows and the ability of understanding social problems shrinks. Our activities in schools stimulate pupils to strive for improvement, both for themselves and for the communities they can affect.

STUDENTS TALENTS

 
It is schools in marginal neighbourhoods that hide what is needed to transform Italy: widespread talents to cultivate and support. These students are our very mission. We want to convince them that the future depends on their actions, not only on their backgrounds.

INEQUALITIES UNIVERSITY

Today’s students are the most educated and tech-savvy of all time, but Italy still has too few graduates. Poliferie aims at increasing the number of Italian students enrolled at university. More education equals more innovation and more social mobility.
