Towards Savio 2030: co-governance for the sustainable development of the Savio Valley

“Verso Savio 2030” (Towards Savio 2030) is a project launched by “Unione dei Comuni della Valle del Savio” (union of six municipalities: Bagno di Romagna, Cesena, Mercato Saraceno, Montiano, Sarsina, Verghereto)  in Emilia-Romagna in 2019 and supported by LabGov.City. The project aims at building a strategic path to encourage collaboration and community synergies between institutions, academics, companies, social and civic actors, through the development of a kit of policies and legal instruments.

This process follows and applies the Co-City Protocol that will lead to experiment concrete projects to valorize the territory of the Valley, pushing for social, digital, technological innovation and empowerment.

“Verso Savio 2030” recognizes as representative of the context two key infrastructural and territorial values, one natural and one artificial: the Savio River and the E45 road. These linear elements connect people and opportunities. At the same time, they are crucial to provide answers and test solutions for the challenges posed by the current climate, environmental and sanitary emergencies (the spread of the Covid-19) and crisis.

For these reasons, LabGov.City is strengthening its multidisciplinary vision to animate a culture of change and cooperation in the area that can begin to show its effects by re-thinking mobility and tourism as strategic sectors to reach sustainability goals.
