Make yourself be heard!

We adopted the American Think-Tank approach. This means that everyone can make his/her proposals, ever since the first year of their Bachelor. No experience required, all you need is motivation!

Concrete proposals

After internal discussions we elaborate proposals to be forwarded either to Bocconi University’s professors or to Italian government’s public consultations. We believe in change and in citizens’ active participation. Join us!

What our associates say

“Passion and Entrepreneurship: these the words that made me join nextPA. Passion, because every associate actively participate to our activities. Entrepreneurship, because both founders and the board always struggle in order to get new partnerships and new initiatives for everyone to be included. Furthermore, the environment is challenging and everyone is eager to discuss through one’s own peculiar skills.”
