#LabGovNonSiFerma #LuissNonSiFerma: La seconda attività di Sustainability online

Oggi si è concluso il secondo incontro delle #pilloledisostenibilità organizzato dall’Università Luiss Guido Carli, che ha promosso, durante le festività pasquali, attività online riguardanti tematiche ambientali.

La Clinica Urbana Interdisciplinare di LabGov 2020 ha aderito a questa bellissima iniziativa online organizzando due pillole di sostenibilità per rendere green questo periodo di quarantena.

In particolare, giovedì insieme ai tutor della Clinica Urbana Interdisciplinare Alessio, Julianne e Francesco abbiamo visto come realizzare un Orto in Balcone utilizzando materiali riciclati, come bottiglie di plastica e tappi di sughero, insieme ad alcuni consigli su come essere più sostenibili: “lo sapevi che anche solo cancellando le vecchie mail puoi ridurre le emissioni di CO2 nell’ambiente?”; nell’incontro di oggi invece, insieme agli altri tutor  Caterina, Lorenzo, Tommaso e Flaminia abbiamo visto come preparare del gel igienizzante per le mani, come disinfettare una mascherina e come riutilizzare rifiuti organici, che altrimenti, avrebbero un grande impatto sull’ambiente!

Per nuove iniziative, seguiteci sui nostri canali social e sulle nostre pagine.

Today ended the second meeting of #sustainabilitypills organized by Luiss Guido Carli University, which promoted, during the Easter holidays, online activities on environmental issues. The Urban Interdisciplinary Clinic of LabGov 2020 joined this beautiful online initiative by organizing two sustainability pills video tutorials to make this period of quarantine greener.


In particular, on Thursday together with the tutors of the Interdisciplinary Urban Clinic Alessio, Julianne and Francesco we saw how to create a Balcony Garden using recycled materials, such as plastic bottles and corks, together with some tips to be more sustainable: “did you know that even just by deleting spam emails you can reduce CO2 emissions into the environment? “.

In today’s meeting instead, together with other tutors, namely Caterina, Lorenzo, Tommaso and Flaminia we saw how to prepare hand sanitizing gel, how to disinfect a mask and how to transform an organic waste into beauty cosmetics.
We encourage everybody to follow this sustainability pills to reduce the negative impact that some activities have on the environment!

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.

Stay Tuned!

Urban Clinic LabGov EDU 2019 – I Community Gardening

Urban Clinic LabGov EDU 2019 – I Community Gardening

The process of the Edu@LabGov Urban Clinic’s action on the city/university territory continues with the Community Gardening session which took place last Saturday the 9th of March 2019 in the LUISS Community Garden from 10 am to 12 am.

Labgovers, at first divided into three groups, started working to the construction of three prototypes of their project, using waste/recycled. Following the project’s idea elaborated during the Co-Working sessions in class, and also thanks to the advices of agronomist and botanist, dr. Barbara Invernizzi, the students completed the structure with fruitful outcomes.

These two hours of Community Gardening represented the starting point of a process of collaborative action which aims to concretize the principles of sustainability and circular economy which are central for the Urban Clinic. Nevertheless, the self-construction Lab is still a fundamental collaboration-gym to understand the importance of respecting the timeline in a project.

The project is not over yet: others two meetings are scheduled in the LUISS Community Garden, one for the 23th of March and one for the 27th of April.

Stay tuned!

Gli appuntamenti della Clinica Urbana EDU@LabGov continuano con la seconda sessione di Community Gardening che si è svolta lo scorso sabato 9 marzo 2019, presso l’#OrtoLUISS, dalle 10:00 alle 12:00.

I LabGovers, dapprima suddivisi in tre gruppi, hanno iniziato a lavorare alla realizzazione di tre prototipi creati attraverso il riuso di materiali destinati allo scarto. Seguendo l’idea progettuale frutto delle sessioni di Co-Working in aula, ed i consigli dell’agronoma e botanica Barbara Invernizzi, gli studenti hanno completato lo scheletro della struttura con ottimi risultati. 

I principi della collaborazione, la sostenibilità e l’economia circolare giocano un ruolo cardine negli appuntamenti di community Gardening nell’orto universitario della Luiss. Il laboratorio di autocostruzione (che si svolge in parte degli appuntamenti di Community Gardening) continua ad essere una palestra di collaborazione essenziale anche per comprendere l’importanza del saper rispettare i tempi di una progettualità (allenando alla lentezza), e al fine di raggiungere obiettivi comuni.

Il lavoro giungerà a conclusione nel giro delle due prossime sessioni di Community Gardening, previste per il 23 marzo e il 27 aprile.

Restate Connessi!
