The Global Thinking Foundation’s commitment aimed at supporting a culture aware of savings and the value of money for the economic sustainability of families and economic growth supporting the global objectives of the 2030 Agenda, including Goal 4 and 5. The founding purposes emerge, among other things, a commitment to spread knowledge and training among adults and families .GLT  focus on improving the development of knowledge, skills and competences that allow  making conscious economic, financial and social security choices that contribute not only to individual well-being but also to the family and more specifically social one of the country. But also to “prevent and combat situations deriving from economic isolation for women victims of economic violence, by implementing training and dissemination actions in support of the principles of gender equality and reduction of social damage that derive from this phenomenon which also exposes the new generations to a lack of active participation in the economic development of the country “. This page contains the collaborations born from the meeting with partners sensitive to the issues of gender equality, and the fight against violence and economic abuse.

A show produced by Global Thinking Foundation, written, interpreted and directed by a man, Luca Vullo. Luca interacts with the public questions the importance of women in life, its centrality in the ecosystem and society. This is a praise to the female gender, that will lead the protagonist to make a deep self-analysis on his behaviour with women, recognizing at the end a central role for an egalitarian and sustainable development of society.
