Milan, Italy


This month we will face a specific topic that has recently attracted much interest from professionals who deal with Project Management: this is the issue that concerns the Social Responsibility and how projects can bring a beneficial impact on society.

It’s a running topic and we will see as the subject has been treated in the paper “Social Management, is it a new Project Management Competence?” from Concari and Di Rubbo, published in the May edition of the PMWJ. On the same way, the Italian section of IPMA Young Crew has decided to dedicate an event aimed to speak about the developing countries as a new frontier for project management.

Another initiative that sees again at the center IPMA Young Crew, this time in partnership with Junior Chamber International, with the project called “(Y)Our Future in Milan”, that directly involves to the younger generation and that is topical in Europe: the youth unemployment.

Finally we will see a quick update on the MOSE project which is expected to be completed in the next two years and that will solve the problem of high water in Venice, with a direct impact on the lives of its citizens, tourists and all those who visit its lagoon.
