In close collaboration with the partners and the stakeholders of the MIND ecosystem and together with its network of founders, Fondazione Triulza seeks to contribute to the rise of the new social economy fostered by the European Action Plan, for an innovative and inclusive industrial policy, able to generate economic and social value.

To achieve this goal, the Fondazione works on three strategic axes:

Creating moments of confrontation between very different people and realities is an innovative and fundamental approach to bring the social and environmental impact to the center of the MIND development project, and this is the duty of thevorganised civil society. We are sure that we have taken the right path, because plurality and unanimity ensure the sharing of new development models aimed at building a more equitable, right and sustainable world.
