PEER EDUCATION: GENOVA SCOPRENDO

Genova Scoprendo (discovering Genoa) was generated by the desire to communicate and convey knowledge of the territory and of the cultural, historical and productive legacy of Genoa to its young inhabitants by means of a training itinerary based on the principles of learning by experience and of peer education. The project is organised by Fondazione Edoardo Garrone in association with the Regional Education Board of Liguria, with the Genoese industrial and technological centres, and with the Accademia Ligustica di Belle Arti (Ligurian fine arts academy). It has also been sponsored by the Municipality of Genoa since 2014 and it targets Junior Secondary School students and teachers.
