Cooperazione allo sviluppo

Promoting a culture of development cooperation is fundamental for the quality of life and global development of present and future generations.

Hospitality, Dignity, Human Rights, Equity, Inclusion, Peace, Social Justice, Freedom and Equality are key contemporary concepts that today challenge our individual and collective knowledge and responsibilities.

17 obiettivi per lo sviluppo sostenibile

Taking up this challenge, the University of Verona is committed to a comprehensive and strategic action aimed at supporting values and actions that focus on people and the local communities, in line with the United Nations 2030 Agenda and its goals.  

Openness, hospitality and development, among the key values of the University's Strategic Plan, are embodied in dialogue and the construction of active networks at different levels, in learning and training opportunities within and outside the university community, in research, partnerships and specific mobility programmes. To this end, the University of Verona is a member of several national and international networks such as CUCS, MUI UNHCR, RUNIPACE and SAR Italy.

Piano di azioni UNIVR
