Recognition of THSN Ambassadors' engagement

They were given an exclusive online tour of Procuratie Vecchie, future home of The Human Safety Net

The Ambassadors, from all 23 countries where Generali is represented, included both those who had already spent the past year in their role, as well as those who are about to start in 2022. 

The Ambassadors are comprised of Generali employees and agents, selected each year, who commit to amplifying The Human Safety Net and its programmes in their communities for a period of 12 months. 

They are divided into four different teams: ‘reporters’, who tell the human stories in the programmes in their countries; ‘internal communicators’, responsible for creating ideas or activities to keep The Human Safety Net visible; ‘fundraisers’, who coordinate fundraising activities in their countries; and ‘agents’, who define activities for the Generali sales networks to activate and engage customers.

The Ambassadors were given an exclusive online tour of the Procuratie Vecchie, which is newly-restored by the architect David Chipperfield and which will open its doors to the public for the very first time in the iconic building’s 500-year-old history next spring.

Simone Bemporad, a member of The Human Safety Net’s Board of Directors, and Emma Ursich, Executive Director, thanked the 500 original Ambassadors for their successful work in 2021 and then welcomed the 2022 Ambassador team to their role. Participants in the event also heard from some of the 2021 Ambassadors about their experiences over the past 12 months, as well as 2022 Ambassadors telling their stories about why they had applied to be involved.

The new Ambassadors were given an overview of what lay ahead for them, with key 2022 events highlighted, including the first Hackathon in February, the Global Challenge 2022 in June and the final year end fundraising activities.
