Energy, Beauty, Participation: Cultural Heritage Adaptive Reuse as driver of Circular Regeneration and Sustainable Regional Development
In the context of the New European Bauhaus Festival, Be.CULTOUR is organising an event on: “Energy, Beauty, Participation: Cultural Heritage Adaptive Reuse as driver of Circular Regeneration and Sustainable Regional Development”.
We live in a period of complex interconnected challenges: ecological, social, cultural and poverty issues, together forming a global geo-political crisis. The search for a localised (or re-territorialised) and circular way of living has thus become urgent. However, this crisis can become productive if it enables us to develop new ideas and tools. The circular and human-centred economic model can allow us to turn challenges into opportunities. It can be applied to territorial regeneration, fostering a paradigm shift in which economic values co-exist and co-evolve with social/human values to form a human-centred and circular strategy for territorial development. Here, cultural heritage has a pivotal role. It contributes to cultural identity, shared values and wellbeing, which are fundamental for avoiding a societal crisis driven by forces of isolation and distrust, and it enhances the beauty and attractiveness of cities and regions. This conference will address these topics through a dialogue with researchers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, and civil society organisations.
CHARTER Alliance will be represented by its full member Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo di Milano, presenting the project on the Session 3 “New European Bauhaus: landscape, design and architecture enhancing cultural identity and beauty towards circular and human-centered cities”.
