November 19, 2018, LUISS General Manager Giovanni Lo Storto and Head of the Farnesina Crisis Unit Stefano Verrecchia signed an agreement for student safety and training programs.
The agreement includes a wide variety of activities, from LUISS Academic Gym sessions, training modules on risk management to an integration of the LUISS App and travel portals of the Crisis Unit, Viaggiaresicuri.it and Dovesiamonelmondo.it.
Today’s agreement is a fundamental step in our outreach to the university world. Young people who travel today are exposed to alterations in security that have affected the entire world, including in capital cities like Paris, Berlin, London, Barcelona and New York,” states Stefano Verrecchia, head of the Farnesina Crisis Unit.
“Continuing to travel,” he adds, “is more important than ever, both for our children’s personal development and to defend our model of open society. Faced with new conflicts, terrorism, unpredictable and increasing natural disasters, all institutions, both public and private must respond to society’s acute need security and protection. At the same time, individuals must participate in the culture of safe travel which the Farnesina Crisis Unit wholeheartedly promotes. It’s a large, positive challenge that we want to face alongside LUISS and its students.”
With over 200 exchange agreements, 35 double degree programs, and structured mobility programs with 270 universities in 53 countries, over 1000 LUISS students study abroad each year.
“We are very proud to have adopted the safe travel system so that students can register their travels abroad through the LUISS App. It is an extremely useful opportunity to appreciate the role that Italian institutions have in the education of our students,” concludes LUISS General Manager Giovanni Lo Storto.
