⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Mi ha dato tantissima carica e motivazione per continuare nella strada dell'attivismo.

Laura S.
⭐⭐⭐⭐
Per quanto riguarda storytelling ottimi spunti di riflessione e in generale molto utile al fine di comprendere come strutturare narrazione del proprio progetto/della propria causa.

Davide P.
⭐⭐⭐⭐
Stimolante e fornisce metodi utili per strutturare il pensiero di percorsi organizzativi.

Aurora E.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
è stato ricco di spunti davvero interessanti, che penso possano essere preziosi per tutti. Non l'ho trovato assolutamente noioso e i relatori sono stati in grado di catturare la mia attenzione per tutto il corso dei loro interventi. Ritengo inoltre che il tema trattato sia di grande importanza per l'attualità, perché riguarda da vicino le nostre piccole scelte quotidiane.

Lucrezia B.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Attendo con ansia il prossimo workshop!

Agnese N.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Tutto interessante, anche la possibilità di confronto nel laboratorio.

Giorgia V.
⭐⭐⭐⭐
Mi ha dato una visione dell’attivismo più legata al marketing e alla comunicazione, nozioni non scontate per chi spontaneamente cerca di sensibilizzare altri su un tema sociale.
