Connecting

We believe that by building bridges between different subjects and know-how and focusing on the approaches necessary to obtain the desired change, we can find the most appropriate solutions to social problems

Today’s world is infinitely rich in ideas and solutions to solve existing social problems. Despite this, project design in the social field tends to focus on analysing the single problems that need to be solved, without acknowledging the potential of those solutions which have already been tested.

In other words, all too often there is a tendency to write a context specific project without adequately considering what has already been done, what actors and processes have been activated and the opportunities and critical aspects which have emerged.

In order to find the correct answers to complex problems, we connect diverse subjects and build bridges between different situations and know-how. It is for this reason that we promote the adoption of systemic and participatory approaches, network building, co-planning and co-design of intervention models, while always focusing on the methods for obtaining the desired change.

In fact, we believe that the best solutions can be found in the intersection between what we know already and what we can discover through new encounters; combining knowledge with curiosity will always give birth to good ideas.
