FUTURA ITALIA is an acceleration platform designed to launch Italian schools into the future.

It connects and promotes innovation, digital culture and experiential learning.

The activities of FUTURA are grouped into 5 different thematic areas linked to the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and extend their range of action and vision beyond the national borders. They are naturally connected to the main events which Italy will host during the 2019–2021 three-year period, in preparation for country’s participation in the Dubai 2020 Universal Exhibition.
