Alta Sabina: Smart Communities – Launching Event of the GreenCommunity CSR – Alta Sabina, a EU Recovery Plan project (PNRR – IT M2C1 3.2 – Green Communities
Led by the municipality of Rocca Sinibalda (Rieti – IT), the Green Community CSR – Alta Sabina – formed by Belmonte, Colle di Tora, Longone, Marcetelli, Torricella, Monteleone, Poggio Moiano, Poggio S. Lorenzo, Varco Sabino – won one of the European Recovery Plan calls (PNRR – IT M2C1 – Investment 3.2 Green Communities), with a project strategy, designed by the Di Vittorio Foundation, that embeds and systemizes fifteen interventions.
Locating the territorial Ecosystem Services (ES) at its core, the project design strategy concerns the regeneration processes and the participatory management of the local production chains, aiming at the sustainability and circularity of local cycles (wood, water, renewable energy, agriculture and tourism). Leveraging endogenous vocations and the integration among expert and tacit local knowledge, the entire strategy pivots on the infrastructuring of a Social Pact for the negotiation of sustainability trajectories and of shared future scenarios. Two of the four system interventions that support the other eleven, consist of the implementation of a digital twin in native app interfaced by a blockchain platform. Therefore, pivot of the designed strategy is an approach of design systems thinking that consider digital transformation and resource flow efficiency not only tools of sustainable development but opportunities for the co-production of territorial values, fostering the ecological transition.
The event will be held at the Castle of Rocca Sinibalda (Rieti – IT) on Friday, May 5-from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. It will be accompanied by a planting initiative of shrubs and flowers useful to pollinating insects entitled Network of Smart Gardens of Alta Sabina. The latter activity will take place inside the Hortus de Sinibaldi and it will be led by two classes from local schools (maximum 40 children). The garden will be created with the contribution local agricultural and organic farming firms, which will provide about 50 small shrubs (useful for rooting). During the activities there will also be an educational moment to raise children’s awareness of pollinating insects and biodiversity.
