Who we are
We want to contribute to a more sustainable world in light of a human rights centered approach.
We are a multicultural, multilingual team that has had the opportunity to approach the world of cooperation from different perspectives and angles: both in the field and at the institutional level, we have given voice to the demands of underrepresented social groups. From the merging of our passions and skills, we came up with the desire to launch “Sustainable Cooperation for Peace and Security“.
