Consorzio Kairòs is a network enterprise with a high social impact

It is a consortium of co-operatives and a second-level instrument for carrying out advocacy and lobbying for its members, operating both independently and on behalf of its social base.

Today, the social base, mainly made up of third sector entities, is open to institutions and for-profit enterprises interested in developing complex projects of social and community leadership through innovative and inclusive processes that promote the protagonism of local communities and the environment in which it operates. 

Consorzio Kairòs represents the entrepreneurial interests of its members. Through its board, it provides its members with a system of scientific, academic and institutional relations to facilitate the achievement of their mission. 

Our Activities

Projects

STEM*Lab

Discover, Transmit, Excite, Motivate

The project intends to promote the overcoming of personal, cultural, social and behavioural vulnerabilities of minors (5-14) and their families through the creation of an open school context, to be used by the family and the whole formal and informal education system of the territory, which uses innovative methodologies and resources for STEM education in a logic of prevention of educational poverty. To this end, it adopts a circular intervention strategy that will move from the national level down to the local contexts and back to the national level at the end of the project.

A National Working Group is developing new educational strategies to experiment locally with local partners through the creation of a network of 13 academic centres, understood as a physical place based in the school and open to the whole community, also during out-of-school hours: the STEM*Labs, activated in the areas identified for experimentation in Piedmont, Lombardy, Campania and Sicily.

SPACE*Lability

SPACE*Lability, financed by Fondazione CRT’s Vivo Meglio call for proposals, responds to the need to a re-signify disability, counteracting the stereotype of a condition
of dependency and inefficiency, and at the same time to the market for girls and boys (disabled and non-disabled) to represent themselves and communicate, overcoming constraints and schemes in which they do not have their vision of reality and overcoming the fear of not being listened to and appreciated. In this context, the project introduces Tinkering, a frontier approach to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education and a powerful tool for building 21st- century competencies: creativity, innovation, critical and systemic thinking, resilience, entrepreneurship and flexibility.

This and other innovative educational approaches based on the use of technology and digital technology will be at the heart of the experimental workshops proposed to the students involved, who will work in mixed disabled and able-bodied teams to explore space themes.

FAMI F.O.R.M.A.

Training Opportunities and Resources for Migrants in Agriculture

The project, approved by the Ministry and currently being implemented, aims to promote the emergence of irregular working conditions of foreign workers regularly on the territory engaged in agricultural work. This aim is pursued both through the construction of relations with the beneficiaries, their information and the structure of the building of paths to strengthen skills and job placement and by raising the awareness of local communities both at a general level (actions addressed to citizenship) and at a local level targeted on those territorial stakeholders. If they are made aware, they can activate and deploy resources for good sustainable practices in the medium-long term.

In methodological terms, the project is based on Capacity Building to acquire skills that can be used at work and for the local communities related to the dimension of awareness and activation to fight irregular work.

PERSE

Project funded by Erasmus+ KA227 Youth

The project aims at improving youth workers’ skills in designing multidisciplinary educational activities for young people by integrating different methodologies thanks
to the application of the creativity-oriented PERSE pedagogical approach to work
with STEAM disciplines. For this reason, our project aims to promote the creation and sustainable development of innovative youth workers who can serve as ‘social bridges’ between the educational, cultural and creative sectors across Europe. Through a unique experiential learning method that will merge art, research and technology-based learning, they will be able to co-design with artists, scientists, educational institutions, museums engaging educational activities for young people to stimulate their creativity while experiencing connections between different disciplines and enforcing the development of their key competences.

Cascina Falchera

Cascina Falchera is a permanent urban farming project located in Falchera and aiming at supporting local green awareness raising activities for the citizenship in an innovative context composed by a community garden, +5 laboratories for food transformation and STEM activities, an educational farm for children, a social restaurant and a social housing for people in need.
