Are you ready to learn how to transform the conflict into an opportunity and generate social change? The World House program is the experience that you are looking for!

Rondine Cittadella della Pace is an organization committed to reducing armed conflicts around the world and spreading its own method for the creative transformation of conflicts in every context.

They share their daily life, experiencing a challenging international, intercultural environment.

The World House program lasts two years and includes:

  • A Master’s in universities in Central Italy (Tuscany, Umbria)

  • Civic and community engagement activities, in Italy and abroad

Currently, the World House hosts thirty students from twenty-five different countries in Europe, Africa, America, the Middle East and Caucasus.
