Local and global sustainability. How to actively contribute in your country or abroad?

In addition to studying, passing exams and field training, other experiences are useful to learn by doing ... something useful for yourself, others and the planet!

Volunteering in development cooperation, civil service in your city or abroad, or concrete initiatives to solve everyday problems are among them.

The development cooperation projects of the University of Bologna" (at the Malatesta Library).

AlmaEngage is a virtual structure for coordinating development cooperation activities within the University of Bologna at a local and an international level. AlmaEngage is part of a broader process in which universities are opening up to the outside world, are actively engaging in social and public issues and are sharing as well as transferring knowledge to the benefit of society. This project serves as a way to promote and put in place any planned initiatives, as well as to create and implement new ones aimed at sensitizing and stimulating academic and non-academic stakeholders on the themes of development cooperation.
