What partners say
Gregorio Caporale - Industry Lead Powercoders Italia
Blockchain certification plays a strategic role within the Powercoders project who pursue the ambitious goal of breaking down the barriers of access to the labour market for refugees. It allows guaranteeing the ownership and immutability of the certificate issued at the end of the course, thus increasing the trust of companies in the candidate.
With the continued growth of urban areas globally, rising inequality within our cities is becoming an ever more urgent issue. Policy, innovation and collaboration that prioritises social inclusion of vulnerable people, including refugees, is key to build safe, secure and inclusive cities. Solutions with trust and equality at their core are essential to enable individuals to more easily and confidently engage with the communities in which they live.
