In this article, social cohesion is presented in terms of belonging, interdependence, integration, sharing, participation, but also as corresponsibility between the different actors present in a territory. The promotion of social cohesion, therefore, essentially has to do with educational interventions aimed at social inclusion. Compared to the more traditional interventions on social emergencies, supporting social cohesion means in fact enhancing relations between members of society and promoting the common good through the collective assumption of responsibility. The role of the school is crucial in this, but also of lifelong learning, therefore the Third Mission of Universities.
