Workshop

Urban Planning - Large Scale Modeling

Participation to the workshop is free of charge. However, due to space limitation, we recommend to register.

The workshop has been accredited by the Order of Architects, Planners, Landscape architects and Conservators of the Province of Trento (Ordine degli Architetti, Pianificatori, Paesaggisti e Conservatori della Provincia di Trento) for 3 credits (CFP).

Overview

www.seecityplatform.net

The first STATUS Workshop on defining the contents provided by the South East Europe City Platform will be held at MAG Riva del Garda, Trento, Italy, between 8-9 September 2014.

The first day will be dedicated to technical speaker presentations, in which renown researchers and entrepreneurs will provide their expertise on the aspects of developing integrated geographical information systems, localization and crowdsourcing solutions as well as innovative visualisations and tools for urban and territorial development. Their input on the workshop’s focal points, “Large Scale Modeling” and “Urban Planning”, will be instrumental in determining the final shape of SEE Space’s first platform for small and medium-sized cities.

The second day will be closed to the public and will witness an operational roundtable discussion and workshop on the final products that will be published online as an output of the STATUS project and will be attended by representatives of partner cities best equipped with GIS data, STATUS Content Management, Scientific and Technical partners, as well as relevant representatives within the Programme and beyond. Based on the identified target users within the SEE space and the developed services of STATUS, the meeting’s purpose will be to jointly answer the following key questions:

    1.How can we better illustrate, diffuse and help replicate the STATUS Methodology for an integrated, participative approach to strategic planning in the SEE Space?
    2.What are the steps to transform the SEE City Platform into the virtual hub for stakeholders (local administrations, researchers, business owners and investors, everyday citizens) interested in getting involved in the future development of their cities?
    3.How can the use of STATUS Geoblogs as collaborative mapping instruments be extended to encourage long-term participation and better governance?
    4.Most importantly, what are the requirements for development and uptake of a "full function" Territorial Atlas of plans and policies for our partner cities?

The meeting will aim at answering all these questions, and with them, at establishing the final content of the SEE City Platform – the STATUS online instrument for fostering long-term sustainability, coherence and integration within the South East Europe.

Technical Talks

The list of the technical talks is constantly updated. Following the confirmed speakers so far.

Iacopo Carreras

Sustainable Urban Development: for Citizens with Citizens
Successful urban planning and management relies on the active participation of citizens, at the level of both individuals and collectives (organisations, communities). In this talk we will make a case for the adoption of a citizen-centric approach in urban planning for sustainable development. A number of enabling ICT tools will be presented, together with a set of use cases and best practises for adoption and deployment.

Venue

The MAG Museo Alto Garda is comprised of the Museum of Riva del Garda, which looks directly onto the lake itself, and the G. Segantini City Gallery in Arco, standing at the foot of the Castle Mount which dominates the entire Sarca valley. In the two venues of the MAG Museo Alto Garda, history, archaeology, landscape, art and the contemporary world converse via a mutual exchange to offer an approach which valorises our own heritage with the aim of better interpreting both the present and the future.

Getting there

Lake Garda is in a strategic position within easy reach of the principle national and international airports, the nearest being Verona-Villafranca, approximately 15 km, and Brescia-Montichiari, 30 km. Both are situated south of the lake and are connected to the Verona and Brescia railway stations by an airport coach service. Another important airport is Bergamo-Orio al Serio, about 80 km from the lake. The Milan (Linate and Malpensa) and Venice airports are about 100 km from Lake Garda. Personalized transfer services are available to and from all the localities on the lake.
If you are travelling by train, the stations on the southern shore of Lake Garda are Desenzano and Peschiera del Garda. The nearest station to the northern area of the lake is Rovereto. The stations are linked to the main localities on the lake by regular bus services.
You can reach Lake Garda by car along the motorway or state road. The A22 Brenner-Modena motorway connects the localities on the east and north shore of the lake, and the A4 Milan-Venice motorway connects the localities on the south shore. If instead you choose the normal road, the SS 249 Gardesana Orientale goes along the east shore of the lake and the SS 45 bis Gardesana Occidentale runs along the west shore.
