Learning objectives 

The course aims to provide students the following knowledges and skills:

management of territorial transformations, in sustainable local development projects, aimed at community empowerment.

D4. Communication skills. By the end of the course, students will be able to explain, discuss and apply course concepts and acquired operational tools, especially using active listening and negotiation tools.

Contents 

A course introducing the theme of territory's conservation and management must give great importance to the concept of urban and territorial regeneration, especially in the territories of ancient settlement, where the construction of cities, urbanized and rural landscapes create an complex palimpsest. In the next future, the action of international cooperation projects will be increasingly directed to protect these territories, to make them attractive and competitive, but above all to prevent the environmental risks that threaten them and develop their resilience.
The course will be divided into three parts, dedicated to some notions:
- Urban planning and management of the city and the territory
- Climate change, environmental risk and urban planning
- Conflict, inclusion, empowerment of local communities
Each year, the course will be specifically engaged in the analysis of a particular monographic theme, so students will be asked to develop appropriate case studies.

Teaching format 

The proposed activities will be mainly lessons and seminars, but also workshops with the intervention of external experts; workshops will require to carry out specific exercises, to be performed in part in the classroom and partly at home. Particularly appreciated will be the student's attitudes to classroom interaction, their proactiveness, and the ability to develop constructive dialogue within the working group.
Classes will be held in Gorizia, at the Trieste University Pole of via Alviano 18.

Students (alone or in groups of 2 people) must study at least one volume agreed with the teacher, must demonstrate the critical knowledge of the topics explained in class and write a paper that develop the critical description and evaluation of a case study. The paper will be presented to the exam during an individual interview. The final evaluation will be based for 10/30 points on the case study and for 20/30 on the oral examination.
Non-attending students are requested to contact the teacher by and no later than the end date of the lessons (Friday 20 December 2019) to define a specific preparation course, composed of bibliographical indications agreed with the teacher (from two to three volumes) and the preparation of a paper on a case study on topics related to the course.
