Game of Wellness

Well: I was feeling really well at the idea of writing well this post about wellness. Such an abused word, isn’t it? Wellness. What does it even mean? We had a training course exploring the topic. It was an intense journey, a week of great inspiration, connection and personal development. So I am here to celebrate […]

Green Gaming – Tenerife

As a freelance trainer, sometimes I get just the perfect combination of place-process-people that makes an experience truly memorable. It’s a slight variation of the “3 P triangle” sometimes used to evaluate a product or an activity, and it works really well to describe why the week-or-so we spent in Tenerife, in october 2016, was really special.

SAY – Spinning a Yarn

What happens when you try to combine two topics apparently very different from each other? Who knows? We didn’t. And that’s why we decided to realise SAY – Spinning a Yarn: a training course on how to apply effectively storytelling methods to global education issues. If you needed to search what “Spinning a Yarn” means, don’t worry: you […]

Share the Right Story

If I had to choose an alternate title for this post, it would be: Back to The Future. I even have the soundtrack of the classic 80s movie going on in my mind right now! And then I understood why. Because in “Share the Right Story” – training course co-funded by the European programme Erasmus+ – […]

Insight 2014 – Tanzania

This is a short summary of what happened in the summer 2014, when I went to Tanzania to take part to “Insight”, a fantastic project organised by the Irish friends at Development Perspectives with Uvikiuta in Tanzania. Insight is a year-long learning programme on Global Education that takes part in Ireland and Tanzania. It involves students (no real […]

Nature of (EVS) Sermugnano

By now, if you are following my posts and adventures, you know that I like a good story. The week I am going to describe has all the elements of a good one: an inspiring place, an interesting cast of characters, a good solid plot, and a mystery to solve. It was the second edition […]

Gamification

Think about your favourite game, of any kind. What is it? When was the last time you played it? Were you alone, or with other people? Did you win? Did you even care, to win? These are common questions related to the topic of “games”. Is it easy for you to answer to them? And why? […]

Get Storied

It is done! We just concluded “Get Storied” (Storytelling and education), a week long training course co-funded by the European Erasmus+ programme, which took place in our self-managed hostel in Sermugnano. I was very happy to go back to that place, to which I am connected by so many memories, and that is able to create immediately a […]
