Cascina Sant’Ambrogio, a suggestive farmhouse surrounded by greenery in the city of Milan, was the location where the Italian Multiplier Event of Upload Your Dreams project took place, in a sunlit Sunday on July the 14th.
The event addressed the topics of social and sustainable agriculture and of which work opportunities are available for young people, and especially those with fewer opportunities, like migrants. Contrary to expectations, in fact, the city of Milan is one of the main agricultural cities in Italy and latest trends show how young people may find actual and interesting opportunities in this field, to integrate in the labour market.
About 30 participants, from different organizations, had the opportunity to listen to five experts with various experiences, who were invited as speakers in a round table for this special occasion. Moreover, the experiences carried out in the project Upload Your Dreams – by testing in Milan the good practice of the “job shadowing”, which ICEI learnt from Salva Vita Foundation – were presented.
