Experience, cooperative education and fun, all join together in a unique and innovative campus

ECCY is promoted by the Federazione Trentina della Cooperazione under the patronage of the Autonomous Province of Trento
Cooperative methodology and experience
A campus specifically designed for an active and dynamic acquisition of cooperative and entrepreneurial competences.
Classroom activity is alternated with work experience in local cooperative enterprises, alongside real “cooptours”: purpose-built guided tours to help better understand cooperative best practices, concepts of economy and sociology, and knowledge of the natural and cultural heritages of Trentino.
Entrepreneurship, spirit of innovation, social awareness and active citizenship, are some of the key competences to acquire and certify in the campus: all competences required by the guidelines promoted by the European Union.
With more than 500 cooperatives and 270,000 cooperative members in a population of half a million inhabitants, Trentino is a real and unique cooperative district both in Italy and in Europe, visited by many delegations and research institutes every year. A place where cooperation is an instrument that adds value not only to working life, but also to the local communities, creating identity and a sense of belonging.
