The Civil Society Pavilion has entered into a partnership with the start-up S.T.R.A.D.E., Sistema Turistico Rete Accoglienza Diffusa, a network of tourist welcome centres responsible for providing welcome services to the visitors and organizations that will be present at Cascina Triulza during the six months of Expo Milano 2015 and for all visitors of the Universal Exposition.
The purpose of S.T.R.A.D.E. is to promote services that put people at the centre of the tourist offering and help them in their transfers.
To access the services, log in to the web platform: www.stradexpo.it
Through a user-friendly interface, visitors can enter their request specifying which accommodation solution and which services they are interested in: transport, assistance, children services, or tourist services and offers. Once the request is completed and submitted, the S.T.R.A.D.E. team will process it and send a proposal to the customer or develop an alternative solution if any of the customer's requests cannot be met.
Users can choose to pay for the selected service via bank transfer or Paypal, and receive vouchers for all the services purchased. The S.T.R.A.D.E. team is always at the customers' disposal during their entire stay. For additional information: firstname.lastname@example.org

Expo Milano 2015 is an important opportunity to publicize the work and proposals of the Civil Society also outside the exhibition site. Fondazione Triulza, together with its network of founders, promotes an Extended Expo so as to engage citizens on the theme “Feeding the Planet, Energies for Life” through the knowledge of the activities and experiences managed by the many Third Sector organizations that operate at territorial level.
In the next few weeks the association Exponiamoci will present a first mapping of Extended Expo networks and territorial experiences that are being planned, such as the initiative Expo Diffuso Valtellina Valchiavenna: www.expodiffusovaltellinavalchiavenna.eu
