The Pietro Pittini Foundation is committed to promoting actions aimed at innovation and development in line with the United Nations’ SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), introduced in 2015, and which constitute the Agenda 2030 blueprint for international development.
With this in mind, we are working on creating and developing projects that focus specifically on: SDG 4 – Quality Education, in order to ensure equal access to top-notch education, SDG 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth aimed at ensuring that financial services, and other tools essential for inclusive and sustainable economic growth, are available to those most in need; and SDG 9 – Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure using technology, research and innovation as drivers that lift a community to a sustainable development.
We study the local context of each situation in order to seek the most suitable partners with whom to develop our projects, and who can ensure the delivery of first-rate programs in line with our goals.
