Introduction to the course
The aim of this course is to stimulate the reflection on those topics that constitute the institutional objective of NIHMP. Starting from the idea of well-being, that is those physical, psychological and social conditions which allow human beings to really live their lives, the course will deal with the problems related to a new idea of future.
As indicated in the title, this course has the only objective to collect ideas and proposals aimed at re-thinking our present and create the bases for a better future.
