Summary of the project
The project wishes to encourage citizens to use urban green areas; to bring out needs and desires with respect to urban green areas, close to schools, not really enjoyed by students;to create and promote short green routes in the city for commuters and tourists starting from the train station, where the cooperative is based. With this project, the idea is to enhance the urban green areas, by creating and promoting small green paths, through signs and information panels that lead the citizen and / or the tourist to make more use of these green urban spaces, starting from the cooperative HQ, which is in fact a city gate from the point of view of rail and extra-urban bus traffic. As for the citizens of Ivrea, and in particular young people, the goal is to create participatory processes with the aim to increase awareness of the city’s green heritage.

Several results were obtained, regardless of the COVID. It has been created a digital platform with a large amount of content concerning the environmental and social value of the green areas of the project, including texts, images, quizzes, recipes, interviews and educational material. Another result was the installation of project signs close to the cooperative location (a map of the green areas) and along the green areas, creating a multimedia itinerary. The itinerary was promoted though the creation of project cards with the map on it and the organization of 3 events for the public with 175 people. Other than the public tour, educational tours were organized for 19 group classes of a Liceo, reaching a total of 500 students ca. 3 educational packages were realized for three different age groups, for teachers to independently organize activities in the green areas.
