The initiative, now in its 12th edition, has been developed this year as well in collaboration with the Foundation for Schools.
From May 30th to June 2nd, 2024, the International Festival of Economics in Turin returns, an initiative designed and conceived by Laterza Publishers and organized with the Turin Local Committee (TOLC), as part of Turin Futura.
The event, directed by Tito Boeri, will this year revolve around the theme “Who Owns Knowledge” and will also host the EconoMia Contest.
The contest is open to all students in the final two years of Italian secondary schools, including Licei, Technical Institutes, Professional Institutes, and the final year of regional Vocational Education and Training (VET). Prizes include €200 and a free pass to the 2024 International Festival of Economics in Turin, where winners will be awarded during a dedicated ceremony.
The prize and expenses for the hospitality of the 20 winners – covering travel, meals, and accommodation for three days and two nights in Turin during the festival – will be fully funded by the Foundation for Schools of the Compagnia di San Paolo.
Please note that the Contest is promoted by TOLC, Laterza Publishers, and the Foundation for Schools in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Merit – Directorate-General for School Systems, Evaluation, and Internationalization of the National Education System, the Savings Museum, the Giovanni Agnelli Foundation, the “Bodoni” Economic Technical Institute of Parma, and AEEE-Italy.
The International Festival of Economics in Turin will also be the setting for the third edition of theEcoQuiz, aimed at students in the first, second, and third years of lower secondary schools across Italy, for which registration and regulations will soon be available on the dedicated website.
