GiornateBertinoroEvery year, in early October, on the hill of Bertinoro, the protagonists of the academic world, the Social Economy and Volunteers, and institutions meet with a community of students and young social entrepreneurs, to think and talk about the issues of Civil Economy. Since fifteen years, Le Giornate di Bertinoro have represented a laboratory for the analysis and the comparison of future challenges of the third sector with the aim of developing a paradigm of Development and Sociability.

The meeting has been promoted by AICCON. It is the Research Center sponsored by the University of Bologna, the cooperative movement and by many public and private organizations, operating in the Social Economy. The Association aims to encourage, support and organize activities to promote the culture of solidarity, with a focus on ideals, attitudes and activities of Cooperatives and Non Profit Organizations.

Sito genericaThe Economics of Cohesion will be the focus of this year. It will shine the spotlight and spark a debate on new production of social value, the governance of the Commons, the Social Impact Assessment and on the long-awaited reform of the Third Sector. Plenary sessions and round tables will alternate in a well-established format during this year edition of the #GdBLab – Giornate di Bertinoro Laboratory. Professor Iaione – coordinator of LabGov – will attend the event, addressing the issue of the #Commons. LabGov is dealing with this issue, especially in expectation of the 1st IASC Conference on urban commons.

Today, tissue regeneration and social levels of social cohesion of communities also pass through the economy (economic cohesion) and the identification of new mechanisms of production value. Cohesion becomes, therefore, a fundamental element for the competitiveness of the territories and, consequently, for the local business fabric. To rebuild the bonds of trust, a fundamental element for the proper functioning of economic and social institutions, it is necessary to restart from the repositioning of the economic discourse on the Commons (environment, water, land, knowledge, biodiversity, culture and identity), because their characteristics require a mode of management that is based on sharing practices. In particular, based on the sharing economy, the cooperative represents the role model, because it is able to guarantee inclusive governance structures that organize the offer and, at the same time, pay attention to the demand side, intercepting the needs of the communities in which those goods are placed.
