Panel Discussion

Private initiatives by local entrepreneurs whose production is being developed with an emphasis on sustainable and social innovation are being projected directly within the urban commons and thanks to them. ‘Green Urbanism’ expands the maker ethos, and agendas of civic participation into the future based on a variety of initiatives: this is the urbanism of Small Acts – and social enterprise.
