The ITS Blue Zone Foundation was born from the desire to preserve, enhance and promote the distinctive and attractive elements of the Blue Zone areas in a transversal perspective, including all identity assets.

To achieve this desire, the Foundation will collaborate with public and private entities to build a system that can train professionals capable of exploiting and applying technological potentialities in favor of environmental protection and sustainable development of the territory.

What is the reference sector of the ITS Blue Zone foundation?

The ITS Blue Zone Foundation refers to the sustainability sector, in every aspect.

Sustainable development is the sort of economic development that puts the protection of the environment, the territory and all that these two components entail, and implies the ability to be able to live ensuring a fair and dignified life for all. The Blue Zones represent the reference model par excellence in which it is possible to learn, train and renovate by staying in close contact with the topics of interest.
