The objective of the First Underground4value Training School was to realize a one-week intensive programme in Underground Built Heritage conservation and management. The event intended to develop and to make available new skills for planners, decision-makers, promoters and local development facilitators.
Methodology: The Training School works with approximately twenty professors and tutors; they come from different European countries. It deals with innovative approaches to surveys, analyses, monitoring and testing, in regards to Historic Urban Landscape (HUL), integrating multi-disciplinary knowledge about the underground heritage in a planning framework based on HUL itself. The purpose is advancing tools for empowering local communities, as well as for supporting planners and decision-makers, boosting new job profiles on cultural planning, strategic spatial and transition planning and management. These new profiles will guarantee interaction with local communities, dissemination of innovative thinking and methodologies, supporting the research of social trajectories in an adaptive, forward-looking manner. Lessons and teamwork modules are developed around four topics:
The training is based on scientific approaches. It is open to humanities and to the cultural issues, as well as to the strategies and the tools for urban/rural regeneration policies, the sustainable tourism, the community empowerment, and the UBH conservation. It intends to produce a training toolkit for decision-makers, practitioners, stakeholders and local communities and integrates a procedure for checking training and learning methods. In particular, the training expands HUL framework by developing modules about UBH and introducing Strategic Transition Practices (STP). It provides the participants with tools for elaborating real-life experiments (Living Labs) in a goal-oriented modulation, for shaping strategic dialogue, co-evolution and co-creation.
Trainers and trainees work together on topics related to case studies in an open confrontation. Applying the STP approach, students interactively learn how to facilitate communities’ dialogue, and develop new social, economic and cultural behaviours from the opportunities offered by the UBH reuse also in terms of new lifestyles.
