Events & Initiatives

Cycle of meetings and conferences

The project foresees the organization of a series of information and awareness meetings on climate change, hydraulic risk and natural water retention measures. The proposal includes frontal meetings with experts in the field, but also touring conferences with guided tours of places of interest.

School of Common Goods

BEWARE provides for the activation of the School of Common Goods, an initiative for in-depth discussion and confrontation articulated in workshops and meetings on the theme of common goods. The aim of the school is to offer participants the opportunity to acquire new skills and suggestions for future projects in the area
Beneficiaries:

  • Administrators, directors and employees of local authorities
  • Representatives of associations, movements, third sector groups
  • Teachers and trainers
  • Professionals
  • Single citizen(s) and citizens

Festival

As part of the BEWARE project will be held the first edition of the festival ÔÇťAltovicentino land of water and resilient communities. An event made up of workshops, meetings, presentations and guided tours to promote knowledge and sensitivity to the issues of climate change, its effects and possible measures for the good management of water resources.

Help desk for resilient communities

Starting from the second year of the project, an inter-municipal HelpDesk will be activated to provide information support to the citizens of Altovicentino on the following issues:

  • Impact of climate change in the area of Altovicentino, its risks and solutions;
  • National and European rules and regulations in the field of hydraulic resilience;
  • Types, operation, benefits and costs of small works and interventions for the sustainable management of rainfall in residential and industrial areas, and related investment opportunities;
  • Activation of a purchasing group on water retention measures.

Purchasing group

During the second and third years of the project, a purchasing group for citizens will be set up with the aim of encouraging the adoption and dissemination of measures and interventions for the natural retention of water. This initiative will allow participants to:

  • Contribute to the collective process for the identification of measures for natural water retention (called “Natural Water Retention Measures”) to be included in the purchasing group;
  • Carry out small, medium and large-scale interventions at one’s own home and property for the sustainable management of rainfall flows at particularly favourable prices.

Sustainability and resilience centre

The project foresees the creation of a Permanent Centre for Sustainability and Resilience. The Centre, which intends to serve as a reference on the issues of good water resource management and hydraulic resilience, will offer training activities and guided tours for professionals, administrators, students and citizens and educational visits for primary and secondary school students.

A group of experts in the field at national and European level identified within the project will act as a scientific committee, ensuring the high profile and quality of the initiatives and projects. The Centre will be located at the Casa del Custode, in Santorso (VI), which is already the site of many initiatives, conferences and debates on environmental sustainability and common goods.
