5th May 2018 | Third Civic Collaboration Day and RomaSUDfEST

The Heritage Walk through the neighbourhoods in the South-East suburbs of Rome during a one day event to enjoy the city experiencing civic collaboration practices 

The EDU@LabGov academic year 2017-2018 – the LUISS Educational Lab is the urban clinic for students to experiment on the field the urban commons theories and collaboration practices – is coming to an end and, for the third year, the labgovers will be committed to a one day experience of civic collaboration and cultural and environmental heritage regeneration of urban commons in the South-East of the city of Rome.

On Saturday, 5th May 2018, the Third Civic Collaboration Day and the RomaSudfEst will represent a unique opportunity to meet, discuss and spread a message of environmental, economic and social sustainability.

A programme full of activities – open to participants of all ages – will engage a variety of local actors and urban stakeholders in living different places and public spaces of the entire district, experiencing new practices of civic collaboration, and pushing forward the local public debate.

The Civic Collaboration Day will start at 9 a.m. in the Degli Acquedotti Park (Don Bosco neighbourhood) and from there will cross through the neighbourhoods of Torre Spaccata, Tor Sapienza, Centocelle and Alessandrino; in each of them are scheduled different activities and events organized by associations and active citizens in collaboration with public and knowledge institutions, as Municipio V, Rome Municipality, ENEA and LUISS University.

The initiative is one of the outputs of the work carried on by EDU@LabGov in different urban experimentation sites in the framework of Co-Roma, a project aimed at building an integrated model of urban smart district based on the development of new co-economies: economies with a circular, social, supportive and collaborative nature and on an active and cohesive citizenship.

Amongst the many activities scheduled during the day:

>> At 10.30 a.m., in the green area next to the Rugantino Library (Torre Spaccata), the labgovers – together with the students of the Master in Landscape Architecture of La Sapienza University of Rome – will bring the University outside its doors by setting up the third satellite of the University’s community garden #ortoLUISS and leading a horticulture lab for children.

>> At 3 p.m. in the Centocelle Park – which, for the first two years, has been the centre of the Co-Roma project – will take place different activities for kids about urban mobility, together with a series of heritage walks (organized by the Comunità Parco Pubblico di Centocelle Odv), as defined by the Faro Convention framework, to discover together and showcase to all the participants the beauty of several archaeological and cultural resources of the district.

>> The Collaboration Day will close at FusoLab (Centocelle) at 19.30 with the RomaSudfEst where many people from the district and from the whole city will gather to celebrate with the music the conclusion of this important collective moment.

5 Maggio 2018 | 3° Giornata della Collaborazione Civica e il RomaSudFest

5 Maggio 2018 | 3° Giornata della Collaborazione Civica e il RomaSudFest

Una passeggiata patrimoniale nella periferia sud-est di Roma a praticar la collaborazione civica e tanto divertimento

 

Il percorso del Laboratorio EDU@LabGov di quest’anno sta per volgere al termine e non può che concludersi in bellezza, dedicando – come da tre anni a questa parte – un’intera giornata alla collaborazione civica e alla rigenerazione del patrimonio culturale, ambientale e dei beni comuni urbani dei quartieri di Roma Sud-Est.

Sabato 5 maggio 2018 avrà luogo la Terza Giornata della Collaborazione Civica e il RomaSudfEst, un’occasione per incontrarsi, discutere e diffondere un messaggio di sostenibilità declinata in tutte le sue dimensioni: ambientale, economica e sociale.

Tante – e adatte a tutte le età – le attività in programma che permetteranno ad una molteplicità di attori di attraversare vari luoghi e spazi pubblici dell’intero distretto, seminare nuove esperienze e pratiche di collaborazione civica e contaminare positivamente il dibattito pubblico sul territorio.

La giornata avrà inizio la mattina alle ore 9:00 dal Parco degli Acquedotti, nel quartiere di Don Bosco per poi raggiungere i quartieri di Torre Spaccata, Tor Sapienza, Centocelle ed Alessandrino, in ciascuno dei quali sono previste attività ed eventi organizzati dalle associazioni e dai cittadini attivi dei vari quartieri, in collaborazione con le istituzioni pubbliche e cognitive, come il Municipio V, il Comune di Roma, ENEA e l’Università LUISS Guido Carli.

L’iniziativa è frutto del lavoro che il Laboratorio EDU@LabGov sta portando avanti su più cantieri di sperimentazione urbana nel contesto del Progetto Co-Roma, per costruire un modello integrato di smart district urbano, basato sullo sviluppo di nuove co-economie, ovvero economie di natura circolare, sociale, solidale e collaborativa e su una cittadinanza attiva e coesa.

Tra le varie attività proposte:

>> alle 10.30 presso l’area verde attigua alla biblioteca Rugantino, nel quartiere di Torre Spaccata, i ragazzi del Laboratorio, in collaborazione con gli studenti del corso di Laurea Magistrale in Architettura del Paesaggio de La Sapienza, anche quest’anno porteranno fuori dall’Università quello che è ormai il terzo satellite dell’#ortoLuiss, organizzando un laboratorio di ortocultura a cui sono invitati tutti coloro che sono desiderosi di sporcarsi le mani e divertirsi, inclusi giochi e attività per bambini

>> alle 15.00 nel Parco di Centocelle, oggetto dei primi anni di sperimentazione del progetto Co-Roma, si svolgeranno attività per bambini sul tema della mobilità sostenibile, e i membri della Comunità Parco Pubblico di Centocelle condurranno i presenti in una serie di “passeggiate patrimoniali” (heritage walks, come definite dal Faro Convention Framework), alla scoperta del patrimonio culturale e archeologico del distretto.

>> La giornata si concluderà presso FusoLab, nel quartiere di Centocelle, con il RomaSudfEst, dove ci aspetteranno tanta musica e bella gente per festeggiare insieme la conclusione di questo momento collettivo che speriamo in un futuro non sia soltanto più un evento, ma un giorno come tanti in cui valori quali la collaborazione civica e la cura di un bene comune entrano a far parte della nostra quotidianità e guidano le nostre azioni.

Non mancate, portate tanta allegria e non ve ne pentirete!

Ready, steady, go! We are already here. #LabGov2015/2016

Ready, steady, go! We are already here. #LabGov2015/2016

October 2nd we launched LabGov once again for the new academic year 2015/2016! On our first afternoon of the year, full of emotions and debates, we started with a very ambitious and challenging project. In the presence of the new LabGovers (Law, Economics, and Political Science students)several professors, staff members and illustrious experts had the chance to work together, listen to the inspiring words of one another’s previous experiences and imagine a new project for this year. We expect great ambition and willpower, as well as excellent results to share!

The meeting was attended by the Rector of the University Massimo Egidi, the famous Architect Massimo Alvisi and other partners of LabGov, including Luca D’Eusebio for Zappata Romana, Luca Parisio, Serena Baldari and Antonello Caporale. During the afternoon, the new program for the year was introduced by the name of CO-Rome, a project that involves the study of Rome as a city in which we try to build an innovative institutional future, with different and better views    . The five souls of the collaborative governance (social innovation, public authorities, schools/universities, businesses, organized civil society) will work together to re-design our own city, making it more economically sustainable.

The goal of LabGov is to form new professional figures: “the practitioners of the commons.” These are people who are able to work in government, in business and in societies. They employ and enhance the resources, ideas, energy, skills and talents of these businesses and societies, which are widespread in the community and in the territories.

Autonomy, accountability, transparency and international openness are the values that make LabGov an incubator of innovative ideas built to establish a new economic and institutional paradigm.

The objects of analysis and experimentation will be as follows: collaborative urban and local governance; and economic, institutional and legal technology applied to the commons (urban, industrial, environmental, cultural, cognitive, digital, etc.). These objects promote processes of local economic development and strategic planning, based on innovation and civic collaboration between the public, private and community.

We will start with an initial mapping phase with a careful reading of the territory and its forms of collaboration. We will then have two phases of design and a follow-up.

As we have already done before, we will apply the CO-Cities approach, based on a strong partnership between institutions, the private sector and the community with significant help on the research side by the academic field.

This year, the co-design will be the fundamental instrument to create a prototype for effective governance and to identify tools based on the needs and characteristics of this city. We have to create a governance tool for the city of Rome that is suitable to the city’s peculiarities. This is our challenge: CO-Roma! In our research, we indentified different areas for testing urban cooperation, which are located on the outskirts of Rome: Garbatella neighborhood, the Appia Antica Park, a high school in Ostia and the V Municipality (Prenestino-Centocelle).

They represent four different types of urban commons to regenerate and invest in. This year, the Lab will focus on a very stimulating challenge for the City. A very stimulating journey cha in the City with many allies, partners and friends who will provide insightful advice to prototype a Commons-based collaborative governance for Rome. The Laboratory stays open to contributions, help and advice. The fourth edition of the Lab will take place in two phases. The former phase will focus on the workshops (October 2/2015, November 13/2015, February 26/2016 and April 8/2016). The latter phase will include co-working sessions (16/17 October 2015, 20/21 November 2015, 04/05 March 2016 and 15/-16 April 2016).

During the project, students will also engage in the field. They will cultivate the garden within LUISS University, a real testing ground of governance. In these 100 hours of pure innovation, together we will discover new stimulating and exciting forms of cooperation!

Labgov presents #OrtoLUISS  at #EXPO!

Labgov presents #OrtoLUISS at #EXPO!

#OrtoLUISS AS A SYMBOL OF INNOVATION, COLLABORATION AND FRIENDSHIP

The main event of this year in Italy is the #Expo.  Expo Milano 2015 is the Universal Exhibition that Milan, Italy, is hosting from May 1 to October 31, 2015. Over this six-month period, Milan becomes a global showcase where more than 140 participating countries show the best of their technology that offers a concrete answer to a vital need: being able to guarantee healthy, safe and sufficient food for everyone, while respecting the Planet and its equilibrium. In addition to the exhibitor nations, the Expo also involves international organizations, and expects to welcome over 20 million visitors to its 1.1 million square meters of exhibition area[1]. On the 16th of September, LabGov was  invited to the Cluster BIO – Piazzetta Mediterranea, during the Settimana della Dieta mediterranea / UNESCO in EXPO.IMG_0903

At this Conference, LabGov presented the importance of #OrtoLUISS in the context of sustainability and collaboration. There, the moderator gave the floor to LUISS General Director Lo Storto, who explained how important the project was to him personally and to the LUISS community as a whole. Claudia Giommarini followed Lo Storto and deepened the aim of the project #OrtoLUISS. She explained that the garden is a place for LUISS students and staff to convene, collaborate, and connect to nature. Then, the moderator introduced Professor Iaione – coordinator of LabGov. He illustrated the importance of public goods managed with the collaborative governance.

The two LabGovers started to describe their experience. Benedetta Borghini explained what LabGov is and how LabGov works, including its aim, organization, elements and projects  CO-Battipaglia, CO-Bologna, CO-Mantova etc. Then, Benedetta Gillio discussed the experience in #OrtoLUISS, which she defined as a “school of civilization“ where she learned a sense of respect, the meaning of the words care and patience, and the importance of collaboration. Both speeches focused on how such experiments in collaborative governance are both significant and functional experiences. Completing the explanations, Benedetta introduced the new LUISS LabGov Educational Lab 2015-16, which will aim to provide an effective governance tool for Rome.

IMG_0876The Journalist and writer Gianluca Nicoletti, who is also the president of the Onlus Insettopia, stressed that #OrtoLUISS has unique implications for children with autism because it can help them connect to the world through ortoterapia. As a first mover, LUISS will be the leader of such initiatives. There was also Peppe Zullo, who is the ambassador of the #OrtoLUISS and who focused on the importance of  the earth and healthy food. Finally Massimo Egidi, the Rector of University, spoke about the varieties of flowers and how much we can learn from them.

Beyond the conference itself, the two LabGovers had the opportunity to explore the greater Expo pavilions, and reported that they felt an overpowering emotion, as though they could  feel the power of human potential when the world is united as one. The main street at the Expo contained a series of awe-inspiring buildings, each representing a country, one next to the other. It was an amazing sensation to see those buildings, symbols of the world’s cooperation.

Co-designing #OrtoLUISS!

Co-designing #OrtoLUISS!

27- 28 marzo 4

 

Today at LabGov we’ll co-design the #OrtoLuiss. After the co-design session with Daniela Selloni last week, we will implement the knowledge acquired in term of co-designed services. We will try to draw and translate in practice the idea we have about the #OrtoLuiss as a place of collaboration, an educational space and a stage where many kind of events could take place. This time our challenge will be also to make the co-design process as spread as possible among the LUISS community. In the second part of the workshop, we’ll have another co-design session for the AMUSE project, which consists in a collaboration between LabGov, AMUSE and neighborhood for the requalification of the Piazza Ungheria’s flowerbed.

On Saturday, Labgov students together with LUISS professors and staff, will continue the experiment of the cooking course, with the help of LUISS canteen chefs. In the afternoon, all all those who have a passion for gardening, are invited to participate to the gardening course at #OrtoLuiss from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., in Viale Romania 32.
