Kicked off and underway school projects, the international conference in Milan

The health emergency of the last two years has inevitably reopened the debate on the school system, on the crisis it is going through and its future prospects.

What has changed and what is changing in the world of education? The international conference Kicked off and underway school projects is focused on these issues, in order to identify models and practices for a democratic school system to avoid returning to the same classroom we had before the pandemic.

The event, organized by the School and Democratic Citizenship Laboratory of the Department of Human Sciences for Education Riccardo Massa, will take place at the Milano Bicocca University from 11 to 12 November and will see experts from the academic world, researchers and networks active in the school sector exchanging views and discussing school innovation and participation.

The conference takes place in-person. Participation is free, but online registration is required. Live streaming is planned for the panels on Saturday morning.


INDIRE research will take an active part in the debate with the contributions of the experiences made with the Movements of the Educational Avant-garde and Small Schools and with a series of interventions in the workshops and panels following the plenary session.

In particular, INDIRE researchers will participate in the following events:
