Ersilia is a private non-profit foundation devoted to promote a collaborative and active learning culture to deal with urban global and local challenges. 

In Ersilia, 

We embody sustainability values, including the values of communication, learning, collaboration, creativity (as a means of transformation and initiative) and a strong commitment to creating a future that harmonizes social, environmental, and economic well-being.

We embrace complexity, addressing local and global challenges holistically while considering the dimensions of time, space, and context. To achieve this understanding, we critically assess information and arguments, question assumptions, challenge the status quo, and reflect on how our personal, social, and cultural backgrounds influence our thinking and conclusions. 

We envision sustainable futures using novel methods and tools that boost imagination to develop alternative scenarios, using creativity and experimentation.

We act for sustainable change in collaboration with others, promoting research and innovation projects that drive collective action and empower individual initiatives to address urban challenges, whether at the local or global level. We are committed to unlocking our own potential for sustainability, actively contributing to the improvement of prospects for our community and the planet.

Recognizing the importance of personal transformation in driving change, we believe that by changing ourselves, we can effectively influence others. Therefore, we facilitate training workshops and coaching sessions that nurture the inner capacities required to navigate our increasingly complex environment and tackle challenges with resilience and adaptability.
