civic educationCivic education, respect for people, kindness: are all important ideas that inspire Centro Antartide activities. The quality of the environment is strictly connected with the quality of social relationships. The amount of social capital has a great influence on the quality of life.

In the streets, on the bus, in the offices, while shopping or standing in a queue… there are a lot of places where we can meet courtesy or discourtesy that can make us happier or angrier. A city is a mirror of its citizens. That’s why the philosofer Norberto Bobbio once said that the foundation of a good city is in its citizens’ virtue.
