The Centre organizes the third edition of Youth Culture and Institutions focusing during 3 study days the topic “Work:histories, cultures, rights”, which has been a leit motiv of many activities devoted to the Youth culture during the 2016t. among them the World Youth Forum Right to Dialogue (pro_eng).

General aims and methods

“Youth, Culture and Institutions” is a training opportunity for young people from Italy, Europe and elsewhere who aim to develop professional, managerial and organizational skills at a high level in the sectors of culture, communications, business, public administration and research.

The invitation to participate as a speaker is made to students of 1st or 2nd cycle degree courses, doctoral students, post-doctoral researchers but also to young professionals who are no older than 35.

The aim is to enable meetings between students and professionals coming from different fields of specialization who are interested in acquiring, as a qualifying element of their professional training, an understanding of the complex movement of culture, which can integrate and strengthen their specialist and technical capacities.

New codes of expression interaction and communication, with traditional or innovative tools (ICT), reshape the “cultural” languages and regenerate the forms of knowledge, by school transmission, intergenerational dialogue, alongside the new frontiers of citizenship.

All this concerns also institutional and entrepreneurial practices.

Managing transition processes, that have become a constant feature of the multidimensionality and multitemporality of society, to which the establishment of new professions and the flexibility of old ones is trying to respond, is not possible without a high-level, transdisciplinary  qualification, which does not replace but rather complements and enhances technical and specialised skills.

The “Study Days- Youth Culture and Institutions” are then an opportunity for confronting personal perspectives and professional special languages in order to explore the openness of the interdisciplinary dialogue, there to construct bridges and common streams of thought and knowledge.

All participants are engaged to make available their analytical and critical tools and promote reciprocal strengthening.

New points of view coming from the scientific research and/or suggested by young generations of professionals and students, who are directly involved in the experience of the change by the very nature of their existential position, as well as the acquisition of transversal categories, improve an attitude to lifelong critical learning. This is necessary to cope with the processes of economic cultural and intercultural transformations in the form and contents of work and its relationships.
