2010 figures drive the number of visiting students over 1,000!
By the end of the 2009/2010 school year, over 1,000 students had visited the International Training Centre of the ILO.
In 2010, as part of a project entitled “Growing up in Town” (“Crescere in città”), an invitation to visit our campus was extended to Turin secondary school students (those around 13 years old). From January to May, 335 students from 16 classes in six primary schools also came.
In addition, the 80 winners of a competition for Italian primary schools called “Let’s Make Peace” visited the campus in February 2010. This competition was linked to the “World March for Peace and Non-Violence”, the first-ever world march for an end to war, the dismantling of nuclear weapons and the end of all forms of violence.
There were also visits by university students.
- In April, 30 students from the American University of Kuwait came to learn about the Centre, its collaboration with universities on Master’s and other postgraduate courses (http://www.itcilo.org/en/expertise-services/masters-postgraduates) and the social dimension of trade and investment (http://www.itcilo.org/en/expertise-services/social-dimension-of-trade-and-investment).
- In May, ten Erasmus Project students from the Faculty of Economics at the University of Turin were briefed on Master’s and other postgraduate courses, on employment and skills development and on occupational safety, health and working conditions.
The Centre seeks to arouse students’ interest in global issues and how international organizations are called upon to operate. The new school year is just starting in Italy, and for the 2010/2011 ‘Growing up in Town’ initiative run by the City of Turin, the ITC-ILO will welcome on its campus over 20 classes from the city's secondary schools.
