As promised, below are some of the descriptions of the associations on display today. Note that you should expect the language in which each paragraph is written to reflect the language in which most of that association’s activities take place. Go meet them.
BESt – Bocconi Equal Students
Bocconi Equal Students is a student association active since 2010, aimed at promoting respect and equality for each of the many identities found inside and outside the Campus. Since its foundation, BESt has organized conferences, movie screenings and other events with the aim of raising awareness on the issues faced by individuals in three main areas: LGBTQIA+ rights, gender equality and disability. The association is open to everyone who is interested in broadening their knowledge of social issues and in meeting a truly diverse group of people.
Bocconi Students Against Organized Crime
The fight against Mafia is not something dedicated to the past or to the powerful. It is a daily gesture that involves each of us. With Bocconi Students against Organized Crime you can do your part. This semester -together with experts in the field- we will tackle the instrumentalization that organized crime has made of recent technological innovations, we will talk about NFT, blockchain, crypto and much more. Recruitment is open, details on IG page @bsoc_association.
Students for Humanity
Students for Humanity nasce nel 2011 da un gruppo di studenti con la volontà di promuovere all’interno dell’ambiente universitario valori di solidarietà e responsabilità sociale. In collaborazione con CIESSEVI e con Bocconi Social Engagemen, SFH gestisce il desk permanente di orientamento al volontariato, dove lo studente trova non solo consulenza ma anche la testimonianza diretta di chi ha già esperienza nel mondo del volontariato. SFH organizza eventi, fund raising, esperienze all’estero – come quella a Wasa, in Tanzania – e campagne di sensibilizzazione, affinché la vita universitaria possa formare persone consapevoli di ciò che li circonda sia dentro che fuori le mura dell’ateneo. Inoltre, l’associazione divulga temi di stampo sociale, geopolitico e culturale nel suo blog “informa(l)mente”. SFH è fondamentale per tutti quelli che sentono di poter donare ed apportare un cambiamento significativo al mondo, ritrovando un’umanità che si va sempre più perdendo. Se pensi di essere propenso ad una di queste attività, o volessi scoprirle, unisciti perché “se si sogna da soli è solo un sogno, se si sogna insieme, è la realtà che comincia”.
B.lab is the biggest representative group in Bocconi, active since 2001, and having obtained 22 seats out of 28 in the last elections we are working every day through our Representatives for the wellbeing of each student.
