Il Salone della CSR 2022 - Amapola c'è

An important anniversary, on the theme of “Sustainable connections”

Everything is ready at Amapola for the Salone della CSR e dell’Innovazione Sociale, Italy’s top event for the sustainability community and companies, organisations and professionals that put corporate social responsibility at the heart of their activities. For its 10th anniversary, the exhibition is celebrating Connessioni sostenibili – Sustainable connections: only together, by combining our skills, know-how, resources and experience, will we successfully change our development model. A change that is more urgent than ever, that goes well beyond simple collaboration to establish new forms of synergy. Let’s take up the challenge!

3 days, more than 400 organisations and enterprises, over 100 events including roundtables, initiatives for the new generations, award ceremonies. The CSR tradeshow’s cultural program can be viewed online (here). The event will be held in Milan (Bocconi University, Via Roentgen 1) in hybrid form. Personal attendance is possible, registering on this link. All events can also be followed in streaming.

A new project for the new generations. Plus our video team!

For the tenth edition, Amapola is joining the CSR Show to promote a new project for young people interested in a career in sustainability, Meet the CSR Leaders. A special area has been set aside for sustainability professionals to meet students, who can book a one-to-one orientation session to talk about sustainability issues and learn how to build a career in this field.

And as always, our video team will be there. As in previous years, our operators will be busy capturing the voices and faces of the protagonists of the CSR Show.

We can’t wait to explore this year’s theme: sustainable connections.

See you there!
