Common Good Schools Italy

Teachers in Italy are taking forward Common Good Thinking into their classrooms and school culture. 

Their initial engagement with Together for the Common Good was through Franca Gambari, a teacher from Modena linked with the Association of Italian Catholic Teachers (AIMC), who organised a conference 'Educating for the Common Good' in 2016 in San Marino.

They learned about 'Hope 2016: working together for the Common Good' and afterwards followed 'Faith 2017: working together for the Common Good' - both award-winning initiatives in Liverpool led by Alsop High School, and in which T4CG was a partner.

The Italian teachers sent a delegation to meet their Liverpool counterparts in July 2017, which included presentations from the Italian teachers (here and here) as well as from the Liverpool Faith 2017 team of teachers (here).

Franca wrote an account of their Liverpool visit in our blog here 'Teaching the Common Good'.

Since the visit, the group of teachers in Italy has continued to spread awareness of the Common Good across their network. Read a blog about how they are taking this forward, in From Liverpool to Italy.
