Putting L'Aquila Back on the Map: Let's join forces!

Within the Open Innovation Festival ( 29 November - 3
December) and in collaboration with European companies and institutions,
the community of Eindhoven has started an initiative named “Restoring
the future, by rebuilding the past” to promote new forms of social
aggregation (SenseOfCommunity) for the citizens of L’Aquila. These forms
of social aggregation are centered around new ideas and projects for
the rebuilding of the city of L’Aquila.

Within the Open Innovation Festival (Eindhoven, 29 November - 3 December) and in collaboration with European companies and institutions,
the community of Eindhoven has started an initiative named “Restoring
the future, by rebuilding the past” to promote new forms of social
aggregation (SenseOfCommunity) for the citizens of L’Aquila. These forms
of social aggregation are centered around new ideas and projects for
the rebuilding of the city of L’Aquila.

Why?
The social exclusion is a paramount effect of the earthquake that struck
L’Aquila on April 6, 2009. Individuals have been suddenly deprived of
their social relations as well as of their houses, jobs and daily
habits. Many lost everything they had. For safety reasons, around
130.000 people have been forbidden to access the L’Aquila city center
and the old centers of the tens of villages spread out in the earthquake
area. Social relationships and networks - commonly linked to city-wide
points of aggregation and social interaction - have been put in a great
risk. Also, citizens have also been mostly excluded from the planning of
restoration of their future.

After 19 months from the earthquake, the L’Aquila city center is still
mostly interdicted to people. Buildings and streets are secured by Fire
Brigades putting in place wooden and iron artifacts to prevent further
damages. No relevant social and economic activities are run and the idea
of a normal city is still far away to come for L’Aquila. Almost
everything is still silent and dark, especially nighttime. Walking there
gives back a feeling of abandonment and solitude where students used to
live and contribute to the vivid and active cultural life of one of the
Italian widest old city centers. Many people work hard daily to bring
L’Aquila back to her people. They need a support to make them feel that a
sense community still exists. “Restoring the future, by rebuilding the
past” provides with possibility to be part of the reconstruction with
ideas, suggestions and projects.

How?
The Municipality and the community of Eindhoven together with
GroupSupport and the TU/e provide the citizens of L’Aquila with the
possibility of suggesting a place they would like to see rebuilt in
their town. This place might be a monument, a park, a building or a
symbol to which people recognize a special value in the satisfaction of
their needs when coming back to a livable L’Aquila.

How to participate?
From Sunday 28 November 9 a.m. to Monday 29 November 11 p.m., it will be possible to access the link http://eu.smartspeed.com/ccg/senseofcommunity
and answer the question “Which place to meet would you like to see
rebuilt in your city?”. Participants can enter the name and/or the
description of the place they would like to see rebuilt to live it again
within the town.

[this list will be amended and ideas will be undoubled if necessary]
From Tuesday 30 November 12 p.m. to Wednesday 1 December 11 p.m. it will be possible to access to the same link http://eu.smartspeed.com/ccg/senseofcommunity to vote the 4 best initiatives;

From Thursday 2 December 12 p.m. to Friday 3 December 11 p.m. it will be possible to access the link http://eu.smartspeed.com/ccg/senseofcommunity
to answer the question “What do we need to build these places to
meet?”. Accordingly, everyone will be able to provide ideas and
suggestions to facilitate the implementation of the most voted
initiatives.

On the base of the votes, companies and institutions joining “Restoring
the future, by rebuilding the past” will work on the possibility to
realize what suggested by citizens of L’Aquila.

Thanks for joining the initiative and let’s make relatives and friends part of it!

Hello Joitske,

The interface is in Italian. We are using facebook to connect to people in Italy....and yes, it will be difficult to reach the ones who are not online. (local newspapers will help!). In Italy, the older people aren't connected to the internet like the older people here in the Netherlands.Also, In L'Aquila self, there are only few possibilities to use the internet, the ADSL cable is not working/available in the houses that can not be entered because of the quake. Quite a challenge!

Hi Gaby, thanks for sharing, very interesting. I had a peek, but I was wondering;
- is the interface simple enough for a large number to use? Will it be in Italian?
- how are you going to reach the people who are not or less online?

In other words, how are you going to introduce it and aren't there easier tools?
