The next edition, 28-29 February 2024, will address the theme of enhancing talent: “SKILLS 4 SOCIAL INNOVATION. Everyone’s talent to build the future”
The Social Innovation Campus was conceived by the Scientific Committee of the Social Innovation Academy of Fondazione Triulza in MIND, chaired by Mario Calderini, full professor of the Milan Polytechnic and Director of Tiresia.


  • To be part of a real community that discusses innovations and impact technologies by experimenting new models of social economy – according to the EU Action Plan for the Social Economy – and new approaches to sustainable development, in line with the Agenda 2030 SDGs.
  • To make tools and skills available to young people so that they can co-design and propose new sustainable solutions through hackathons, workshops and coaching.
  • To discover every year the projects of researchers, cooperatives and innovative startups from all over Italy, which during the Campus will introduce technological solutions with a sustainable and inclusive impact.
  • To contribute with one’s own values, themes and projects to the participatory construction of the Cultural Program and the Pathways for Students and Schools which make the Campus a living lab of social innovations.


The theme of skills and talents assumes a central dimension in all regional and European policies in a context characterized by important demographic, economic and technological changes. As part of the Social Innovation Campus 2024, the Triulza Foundation wants to explore strategies with MIND stakeholders and partners to ensure that everyone can discover and enhance their talent and contribute to the construction of a cohesive and inclusive society through:

  • Dynamic innovation ecosystems
  • Integrated training systems
  • Proactive communities and territories

In discussions with MIND stakeholders and partners, the following will be discussed:

  • How can we help all young people, without excluding anyone, to discover and enhance their talent?
  • What can talents do for sustainable development in social and environmental terms? Which environmental and social impact policies become an element of attraction of talents in profit?
  • How can we bring talents closer to the third sector and the civil economy?


The pathways dedicated to schools and students, including university students, include thematic, orientation and soft skills workshops, experiential and co-planning activities such as Hackathons (in person and online). The initiatives organised, all free of charge, are also in line with the objectives of the Pathways for Transversal Skills and Orientation (PCTO) or Citizenship Education. The goal: to offer students and young people the opportunity to experiment and learn about sustainability, innovation and social impact, to orientate themselves on the jobs and skills of future, to work on soft skills, transversal skills and civic education issues.
