3-7 September 2018 Zovello di Ravascletto, Italy
Organised by the OECD Trento Centre - at the initiative of NextPA
In recent years, the Municipalities of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region (NE Italy) have faced the challenge of mutual cooperation. This is not just in the organisation and provision of services for citizens, but also in jointly designing and implementing socio-economic development policies at the wide area level. Faced with this challenge, the Summer School for young administrators was conceived as an opportunity for participants to elaborate specifically on territorial development to be exercised by the municipalities, taking into consideration both their territorial development plans and the related "Agreements for development" negotiated with the regional administration.
The Summer School was conceived as a training opportunity for young municipal administrators to acquire an open mind-set towards innovation on issues of integrated local development and programming. It also acts as a method for designing coherent interventions funded by European funds or other resources in international, national, and regional policies frameworks
The approach proposed in the Summer School is a blending of presentations, working group exercises, case studies analysis, and good practice presentations, outdoor training aiming to foster interaction among participants and develop new and shared knowledge.
The approach is based on a combination of theoretical inputs and practice-oriented working group sessions. A substantial space, during and at the end of each thematic module, is reserved to discussions and open interaction to enable knowledge exchange. Presentations will illustrate concepts, models and tools, examples, case studies, and preparatory practical group exercises on development planning and programming. Working groups will be facilitated by the experts in order to encourage contribution from all participants.
Participation is limited to max. 26 attendees from Friuli Venezia Giulia municipalities with a quota reserved to Triveneto (NE Italy). Admission is subject to a selection process after a public call for interest.
