“Reggio Emilia, come va?” Il Comune di Reggio Emilia lancia un questionario (e invita altre città a usarlo)

L’emergenza sanitaria ha rivoluzionato il modo di vivere di tutti noi, al lavoro, a casa, nel quartiere dove abitiamo. Sono cambiate le relazioni, la socialità, il nostro modo di percepire la città.

Reggio Emilia, come va?” è un questionario per ascoltare i cittadini, la prima tappa di un progetto a cui faranno seguito collaborazioni, interviste, cultura partecipativa, ascolto, buone pratiche. Per ritrovare quella condivisione che contraddistingue il Comune di Reggio Emilia, negli intenti e nella volontà.

‘Reggio Emilia, come va?’ è anche un progetto collaborativo: un modo per aprirsi al confronto con altri Comuni italiani e ragionare insieme, a partire dalla lettura dei territori, su scenari e soluzioni future possibili.
Per questo, il Comune di Reggio Emilia mette a disposizione questo strumento ad ogni amministrazione locale interessata ad usarlo, a titolo gratuito e secondo i criteri internazionali Creative Commons. L’intento è di fare un’azione utile per i cittadini dando vita ad un progetto collaborativo trasversale tra amministrazioni.

Il questionario, che si compone di sei diverse sezioni, è stato sviluppato nell’ambito del progetto collaborativo QUA, Quartiere Bene Comune del Comune di Reggio Emilia, in avvio del processo per la realizzazione collaborativa dei piani strategici dei Quartieri e di partecipazione al Piano Urbanistico Generale di Reggio Emilia.

Sono autrici del questionario messo a punto dal Comune di Reggio Emilia: Graziana Bonvicini, Elena Farnè, Nicoletta Levi, Giulia Sgarbi.
Hanno partecipato all’elaborazione del questionario anche gli Architetti di Quartiere del Servizio Politiche di Partecipazione, il Servizio Urbanistica e il Centro Elaborazione Dati del Comune di Reggio Emilia.

Il questionario è disponibile qui: https://www.comune.re.it/retecivica/urp/retecivi.nsf/DocumentID/C717B4359E3ED373C125854D003F352A?Opendocument.

The co-working session of the “Entrepreneurial lab” of March 2nd is focused on the design of the social business model of the entrepreneurial idea.

After an introduction on the main features of a social enterprise, an hybrid enterprise aimed at solving social challenges with a sustainable business model, the group worked on the identification and definition of the main services that the enterprise wants to offer.
