Sant’Agabio Resiliente: inclusion and solidarity for the urban environment
- environmental design,
- transition towns,
This paper presents the work of the Politecnico di Milano for the “Together It Can Be Done: Sant’Agabio Resiliente” project funded by the Cariplo foundation (2016). Inspired by the principles of the Transition Towns movement, the study intervenes in a multiethnic neighborhood of the Municipality of Novara with innovative actions that enhance the quality of urban environment. The original contribution of the project was the activation of the resilience of a community that is in the process of rehabilitation with goals of solidarity, inclusiveness, participation, and autonomy for the future. The strategies adopted have allowed the involvement of associations in activities relevant to environmental resilience and the facilitation of concrete actions able to generate empathy.
