Terra dei colori no profit organization
No profit organization Terra dei Colori
The social cooperative Terra dei Colori (Land of Colors) was born in 2006 after the merger of two cooperatives “La Città dei Colori” (The City of Colors) and “Terra di gioco” (Game Land), in operation from 1992 and 2003 respectively, with the intention of addressing new challenges in education, social activity and inclusion of the most vulnerable people.
Currently the cooperative plans, manages and implements projects of educational and social scope with a particular emphasis on the city and province of Parma. It collaborates with local public entities with an aim towards improving and enriching the educational and social services of the territory.
The cooperative gained experience in the field of social activities and territorial cohesion through specific proposals implemented with the tools of Ludobus and Multimedi@bus, as well as the youth center and Ludotech. We have also developed innovative experiences in the field of care and inclusion of people with special needs through the Center “The Port of Coenzo.” Daycare and preschools are our main area of socio-educational intervention.
The working models that interpret and exemplify the development of community constitute the theoretical and practical basis of all our planning, together with the idea of combining the traditional means of education with the more interesting and new media education.
