Objective of the conference:

To present the MILMA initiative. Funded by the EU in the framework of its experimental programme Urban Innovative Actions, MILMA has been working for 3 years on the development of an efficient and innovative model of access to employment for the labour insertion of unemployed people, with special attention to the exclusion processes of immigrants and refugees. Where did we start? Who has been part of this journey and how have they contributed to its success? What is the challenge and what does the commitment to experimentation and innovation offer to address the challenges of urban development?
