L’idea progettuale della Clinica Urbana EDU@LabGov 2019

L’idea progettuale della Clinica Urbana EDU@LabGov 2019

Martedì 4 giugno si è tenuto l’evento di presentazione dell’idea progettuale prototipata dagli studenti della Clinica Urbana EDU@LabGov A.A 2018/2019 (i LabGovers) presso l’Università Luiss Guido Carli.

L’evento, che ha preso luogo all’interno del Festival Sviluppo Sostenibile promosso da ASviS – Alleanza Italiana per lo Sviluppo Sostenibile, si è tenuto nell’aula Toti del campus Luiss di viale Romania gremita di studenti, docenti e personale Luiss. I LabGovers e il team di LabGov hanno presentato l’idea progettuale sviluppata in questi mesi di Clinica Urbana: l’orto digitale e la piattaforma GrInn.City – GRowing sustainable INNovation.

Scopo dell’idea progettuale è avvicinare sempre più agricoltura e città, riconnettendo il contesto urbano a discorsi propri della tradizione mediterranea e italiana, quali modelli di agricoltura e alimentazione sani e consapevoli. Inoltre l’idea progettuale mira a scoprire come si vive e consuma nelle città e nei quartieri, a partire dalle aree urbane più complesse, per creare un big data sui temi in oggetto al progetto (alimentazione, stile di vita, benessere circolare, consapevolezza).

L’orto digitale coniuga temi come sostenibilità, innovazione, agricoltura urbana, orti urbani in una struttura mobile pensata per le università, le aziende e i centri urbani.

Ogni struttura è dotata di un pannello solare che garantisce energia sostenibile, di prese di corrente e di connessione Wifi. L’idea dell’orto digitale intende avvicinare le persone a temi estremamente attuali e, per questo motivo, ogni struttura è dotata di un QR code che rimanda alla piattaforma digitale GrInn.City al cui interno sono presenti diverse sezioni dedicate all’alimentazione, allo sport, alla stagionalità, a favole sul mondo dell’alimentazione e della natura. Vi sono anche sezioni dedicate ai più curiosi come “lo sapevi che?” o quiz per capire quanto si è “grinn”.

Ad assistere alla presentazione due ospiti di rilievo: il Direttore Generale della Luiss, Giovanni Lo Storto e il Presidente di Confagricoltura, Massimiliano Giansanti, i quali con entusiasmo hanno dato feedback al lavoro svolto dai LabGovers.

Dopo il saluto da parte del prof. Christian Iaione, direttore scientifico di LabGov, il team di LabGov, guidato dalla dott.ssa Elena De Nictolis, Phd Luiss e direttrice scientifica della Clinica Urbana ha presentato la metodologia codificata da LabGov per rispondere a sfide come quelle lanciate da Luiss e Confagricoltura e per incubare progetti ed imprese sociali.

Il primo a prendere la parola è stato il Direttore Generale che ha affermato come il “Il punto centrale da cui partire è la consapevolezza della propria identità, che è legata soprattutto al territorio di cui si è impressione. Bisogna conoscere e riconoscersi in un territorio. Da qui l’urgenza di un orto alla Luiss e di avere nell’orto i bimbi delle scuole del territorio, gli anziani del quartiere e i ragazzi del progetto Autistici & Giardinieri”. Il DG, dopo aver commentato positivamente l’idea progettuale dei Labgovers e la nascita di questa sinergia tra Luiss, LabGov e Confagricoltura ha sottolineato l’importanza di una formazione che sia “large-life” oltre che “long-life” e ha parlato della sostenibilità come “mezzo necessario per poter custodire la bellezza a lungo nel tempo”.

Dopo l’intervento del DG Luiss ha preso la parola il Presidente Giansanti  che ha ricordato come “Dentro un orto si fa un’attività comune, per cui tutti insieme lavoriamo la terra, tutti insieme disegniamo, tutti insieme irrighiamo, tutti insieme creiamo tutte quelle condizioni per arrivare al successo e al frutto.” e che, guardando al futuro, ha lanciato 4 parole d’ordine: “1. Responsabilità, ambientale, sociale e d’impresa; 2. Consapevolezza, che racchiude anche coraggio; 3. Avanguardia, stare sempre e comunque con la testa al futuro; 4. Successo, che è somma delle prime tre”.

Al termine degli interventi, Alessandro Piperno, Phd Luiss Guido Carli del dipartimento di Impresa e Management, ha presentato il modello di business dell’idea progettuale che prevede una governance cooperativa della piattaforma e del big data su alimentazione e stile di vita nella città.

Benedetta Gillio presidente della Start-Up LabGov.city ha lanciato le prossime sfide per la Clinica Urbana EDU@LabGov 2020. Continueremo a lavorare sui temi dell’innovazione, della sostenibilità focalizzandosi sempre su agricoltura urbana e continuando, seguendo il modello che LabGov.City sta prototipando a Capri, a lavorare sulla mobilità sostenibile.

L’evento si è concluso con il saluto finale del Direttore Generale, Giovanni Lo Storto che, citando il libro “Guida galattica per autostoppisti” ha lanciato la sfida del Frugo, un “tipo straordinariamente in gamba che fa cose fuori dal comune “, che, riconnettendosi al libro “Frugal Innovation” fa di più con meno, innova avendo attenzione della sostenibilità. I Labgovers saranno quindi ambasciatori di cambiamento tra gli studenti dell’Ateneo!

Ora guardiamo al futuro e ci prepariamo alle prossime sfide che dovremo affrontare!

Tuesday, June 4th 2019 the final event of the Urban Clinic EDU@LabGov took place in Luiss University. The event was organized in the framework of the Sustainable Development Festival in order to present the design concept elaborated by the students of the Urban Clinic EDU@LabGov A.A 2018/2019 (the LabGovers).

The event was placed within the Sustainable Development Festival promoted by ASviS – Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development.

In a classroom full of students, professors and staff Luiss, the LabGov team presented the design concept developed in recent months: the digital urban garden and the platform GrInn.City – GRowing sustainable INNovation.

The digital garden combines issues such as sustainability, innovation, urban agriculture, urban gardens in a mobile structure designed for universities, businesses and urban centers. Each structure is equipped with a solar panel providing sustainable energy, power sockets and Wifi connection. The idea of the digital garden designed in this way aims at bringing people closer to extremely topical issues and, for this reason, each structure will be equipped with a QR code that will refer to the digital platform where there are several sections dedicated to feed, sports, food, fairy tales on food. There are also sections dedicated to the most curious such as “Did you know what?” or quizzes to understand how green you are.

The presentation was attended by two important guests: the Luiss General Manager, Giovanni Lo Storto and the President of Confagricoltura, Massimiliano Giansanti, who enthusiastically gave feedback to the work done by LabGovers.

The first to take the floor was the General Director who addressed several issues: he spoke about the small daily gestures to be made to respect the territory. Finally, he concluded by stressing the theme of sustainability: “Let’s remember that the term ” sustainable” English-speaking comes from the word “sustain”, which in English means the central key of the piano that serves to maintain a sweet sound in the long run. We should reflect on the fact that sustainability is not a term that implies sacrifice but a necessary means to be able to preserve beauty for a long time”.

President Giansanti then took the floor, recalling that “Inside a garden we make a common activity, so that all together we work the ground, all together we draw, all together we irrigate, all together we create all those conditions to achieve success and fruit” and, looking to the future, he launched 4 watchwords: “responsibility, environmental, social and business; awareness, which also contains courage; avant-garde, to be always and in any case with the head to the future, success, which is the sum of the first three”.

After the feedback session, Alessandro Piperno, Phd of Luiss Guido Carli in Enterprise and Management, presented the business model of the project idea that provides a cooperative governance of the platform and then Benedetta Gillio, president of the Start-Up LabGov.City, launched the next challenges for the Urban Clinic EDU@LabGov 2020. We will continue to work on issues such as innovation, sustainability by keeping on focusing on urban agricolture and sustainable mobility.

The event ends with the final greeting of the General Director, Giovanni Lo Storto, who has launched the challenge of the Frugo, a sustainabile change ambassador.


Let’s look to the future!

Urban Clinic LabGov EDU 2019: third community gardening session

Urban Clinic LabGov EDU 2019: third community gardening session

Save the date: next Saturday, 27th April Luiss University will host the third EDU@LabGov community gardening session in Luiss Community Garden from 10 am to 13am.

The LabGovers (students of the Urban Clinic of LabGov) will work to make the last adjustments to the prototype of the project that they have designed during these months. This session represents a fundamental moment to put into practice definitively the topics they have discussed in recent months: urban agriculture, urban gardens, healthy nutrition, innovation, technology, justice, sustainability.

The students of the Urban Clinic of LabGov have designed and created an innovative solution to the problems created by the scarcity of knowledge about the state of well being in the cities. They have created two prototypes, one material and one immaterial: a multifunctional structure that will be installed in the city (in strategic points, by starting from the urban gardens) and a digital platform. Through those two tools they will be able to start an awareness/information campaign about the relevance of sustainable models of agriculture and nutrition in the cities and its importance for the individual and collective well-being. At the same time they will investigate the state of the urban well-being by collecting big data on this issue.

As always, this is not just a didactic moment but a collaborative practice born in the walls of the Luiss Guido Carli university and the results will be exported in the city.

Urban Clinic LabGov EDU 2019 – Module III

Urban Clinic LabGov EDU 2019 – Module III

Workshop

The third workshop of the Urban Clinic EDU@LabGov 2019 took place on Friday the 15th of March into the Viale Romania Campus of LUISS University. The workshop has inaugurated the start of the third module of the course. The module was dedicated to “Urban Law and Policy”.  Indeed, the Laboratory hosted three important experts on these themes: prof. Christian Fernando Iaione, lawyer Nico Moravia, and dr. Paola Marzi.

Prof. Iaione, the scientific co-director of LabGov, teaches Urban Law and Policy and Urbanistic Law at LUISS University.

Lawyer Moravia is partner of the law firm Pavia-Ansaldo (administrative law department).

Dr. Paola Marzi is an official of the municipality of Rome as Head of the office for the Urban Gardens, and has a long experience on these themes since she has participated in the drafting of the Regulation of Urban Gardens of Rome.

The workshop was introduced by the speech of Prof. Iaione, who talked about his experiences in the urban regeneration field. He exposed the project of Co-Bologna (http://co-bologna.it/): the program started 7 years ago and its effects were such as to spread his principles in Italian cities like Turin, Rome and Reggio-Emilia, but also in others parts of the world like New York, Amsterdam and Sao Paulo.

All these experiences demonstrated how important is to rewrite administrative and urbanistic legislation in order to face all the problems brought in the cities by the changes of the third millennium. What is fundamental in this process is the participative paradigm, that means involving as much as possible all the different urban stakeholder in order to re-define the way of living the urban centers.

Indeed, lawyer Moravia showed how it worked in the roman context, by showing the case of the Ex-Dogana: an un-used space, owned by Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, brought back to life by the efforts of four young entrepreneurs. The cohesion of legal, human and economics competences, made possible to find a new and simple solution, like a temporary leasing contract, and create what now is one of the most important experiences of this kind in Rome.

One of the sectors where the participative paradigm is more successful and better applied is the urban garden’s one. Dr. Marzi explained how gardens are the place where it is possible to focus all the energies and differences of a neighborhood, not only as a place where plants grow, but as an instrument of social inclusion, that generates wellness and new solutions to co-live the city by building up new forms of community.

Co-Working

The 3rd Module of the Urban Clinic LabGov EDU 2019 continued with the Co-Working session, held on March 16th. The co-working session is facilitated by Chiara De Angelis, Friends of LabGov’s ex-president.

The Co-Working session took place in the LUISS Campus of Viale Romania and it started at 10 am with Pasquale Tedesco’s testimony, expert of Confagricoltura (http://www.confagricoltura.it/ita/).

He talked about the importance of the relationship between Earth and Nature and the fortune to enjoy some products that Earth offers.

After this inspirational session, Chiara De Angelis explained the Labgovers service design, an important passage to complete and improve the idea that they’re developing during this A.A. of LabGov EDU. For this reason, the LabGovers were divided into groups in order to select the “personas” (consumer type) of their product/service, basing on their previous research.

In the afternoon, the LabGovers developed the user journey map to describe the possible experience consumers might have through the platform that they are developing.
