On Saturday February 3, the seminar Pianificazione partecipata del territorio – esperienze a confronto dal Trentino ad altri Paesi (Participated Territorial Planning – comparing Trentino experiences in other countries) took place at the auditorium of Istituto Agrario in San Michele all’Adige (Trento). It was organised by Associazione Progetto Prijedor and Edmund Mach Foundation.
The seminar focused on: exchange of experiences and the opportunity to deepen the knowledge about the territorial planning projects in the field of development cooperation. The participatory methods, the involvement of local stakeholders in the process, and good and bad practices implemented in the field of participatory planning were discussed.
During the seminar, ATB director Maurizio Camin gave the speech on “Co-progettare la cooperazione: relazioni tra Trentino e Balcani dagli anni ’90 ad oggi”, describing the meaning of the concepts ‘working-WITH’ and ‘planning-WITH’, which are the basis of ATB work in the Balkans.
Edmund Mach Foundation, the school library, CAM-Consorzio Associazioni Mozambico, Cooperativa Sociale Gruppo 78, Associazione Progetto Prijedor and GTV- Gruppo Trentino Volontariato also shared their experiences with the students.
The seminar was organized for the IV-year students of the Institute, that are attending a class on Territorial and Environmental Management. This event has represented a first opportunity not only to exchange considerations, but also to star future collaborations in territorial planning projects.
