Porta Nuova Smart Camp
Porta Nuova Smart Camp is an inclusive and innovative project which gathers in a single experience children with and without serious pathologies and disabilities. Nature, sustainable architecture and technological innovation are the topics at the inner core of the camp’s activities, in conjunction with the values of the Fondazione Riccardo Catella and the Porta Nuova Smart Community.
The second edition of the camp, in July 2019, has involved more than 45 children in a week of creative, expressive, funny and exciting activities, based on the Recreational Therapy of Dynamo Camp, coordinated by a team of professionals and volunteers.
The involvement of children leans on recreational activities focused on smart topics that make the Porta Nuova District a unique area for its connection between nature, sustainable architecture, technological innovation and recreational activities.
At the end of the first edition, the Fondazione Riccardo Catella has measured the impact of the project on participants, families and all the companies involved. For further information on the social impact and the linked benefits of the 2018 edition, download our report here.
