Amongst the main actions of the project there is the engagement and empowerment of territorial actors and local communities.
In the last few months project partner SocialFare has carried out two activities of participation and brainstorming by stakeholders and residents.
In order to discover the hidden qualities of the areas near the Dora a questionnaire was launched. A series of questions directed at those who experience, live, work or study in Turin’s neighborhoods of Aurora or Vanchiglia/CLE area.
A PARTICIPATED JOURNEY
Three meetings have been organized in order to collectively think and develop future scenarios for the areas along the Dora, especially for the neighborhoods Aurora and Vanchiglia as well as the area near the Einaudi Campus.
The journey is directed to the entire community: citizens of every age, residents, workers, students, nosey people but also companies, enterprises, associations that are interested in joining this journey.
The key element is to work together: to collect different points of view by involving heterogeneous groups of people with different age, origin or experiences. Under the lead of some experts from SocialFare – Centre for Social Innovation – every participant had the opportunity to express themselves by actively contributing to the creation of new scenarios and insights.
