IUC "Slow Finance" Summer Campus

Aggiornamento: 5 lug

Annunziata, Costigliole d'Asti 21-22-23 June 2024

The International University College (IUC) Slow Finance Summer Campus wants to build understanding on complex and challenging issues related to the finance systems among young generations.

The purpose is to explore paths that participants can then follow in their future careers for the betterment of society as a whole and for personal growth. 

Cultural change for sustainable financial (and social) systems implementation will require visionary thinking, creativity and leadership to achieve the change of paradigm.

The Program

Guiding principles:

  • Leadership Development : Communication, critical reflection, action planning, and more…

  • Experiential Learning: Hands-on, collaborative, and participatory reflection process

  • Systemic Thinking: An interdisciplinary study of Financial Systems Sustainability


Activities includes seminars, work-in-group sessions as well as recreational activities and free time in order to stimulate dialogue and thinking among the participants and the speakers, all along the week. Participants – through lectures, discussions, design making, workshops, film, Q and A sessions with experts, site visits – will investigate financial sustainable systems with the understanding that truly sustainable solutions take into account not only the diversity/inclusion environment, but also the implicit social contract among people, company and public institutions.

The Melting Pot Dinner

All participants are asked to bring a piece of food that is traditional of the area. This food is shared during the first dinner. Participants are also asked to bring songs and music instruments. The Melting Pot Dinner is meant to be a moment of great fun as well as an opportunity to taste unusual food, to understand the importance of local traditions and values and to allow all participants to tune more easily with the others. Two Slow food presidia - 1. Carciofo di Costigliole and 2. Peperone quadrato di Costigliole - and other products of the local tradition will be shared by the participants.

Learning outcomes:

By the end of the program, participants should have a solid, coherent understanding of Slow Finance Systems, and the related challenges faced by human communities at a global and a local level. Students will also have begun the important process of thinking critically about what we can do individually and collectively, and feel empowered to be themselves an agent for positive change.

This old farmhouse has recently been refurbished to bring it in line with environmental concerns and is an ideal place to host the Summer Campus’ activities.
