In 2022 the II Edition of Rheghion United Nations 2030 will take place. This Edition has the title Towards a New Space’s ORMA: Opportunity and Risks of new Modalities of Anthropization between sustainability, innovation and fragility for the territory. It will be in mixed mode, i.e. in presence and virtually.

After having addressed the 17 objectives proposed by the United Nations in a multidisciplinary way in the I Edition, in this one the focus is on 4 areas:

  1. Scenarios of territories between cities and villages for the ecological transition
    Chair: Sandro Fabbro – University of Udine, Francesca Silvia Rota – CNR IRCrES
  2. The ecological transition into the existing: challenges for the ancient and modern heritage
    Chair: Paolo Salonia – ISPC CNR & ICOMOS, Stefano Aragona – University Mediterranea of Reggio Calabria
  3. Energy Municipalities, Territory, Re-forestation, Water in the ecological transition: participation and monitoring

  4. Small local steps essential for the ecological transition
    Chair: Gabriella Pultrone – University Mediterranea of Reggio Calaqbria, Fabiola Fratini – University La Sapienza of Rome

The reference to Rhegion, the ancient Greek name of Reggio Calabria, intends to highlight the importance of history and memory for the present and to propose scenarios for a sustainable future linked to cultural, material and intangible heritage.

Considering, moreover, that we are in the Region of Bernardino Telesio, author of De rerum natura iuxta propria principia, mentor of Tommaso Campanella, coming from Stilo (RC), who wrote The city of the sun.

All Sessions have the digital transition as common element.

II Edition Rhegion United Nations 2030: Towards a new space’s ORMA, Opportunity and Risks of new Modalities of Anthropization between sustainability, innovation and fragility for the territory

http://www.nmp.unirc.it/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/FS-RH.pdf

Even before pandemic cities shown thermodynamic limits, great social and contradictions (Harvey, 1993, 2012) and  of meaning less (Augè, 1992, 1999): results of uncontrolled globalization (Rodrik, 2011) and of an unsustainable artificialization (Munafò, 2020). To respond to economic, environmental and health crises, with resilience as key element for environmental and social antifragility ((Rifkin, 2019; Taleb, 2012), the Event intends to face new paths of reterritorialization (Raffenstin, 1987). So participating in developing a robust theoretical and methodological framework inspired by the autopoiesis (Maturana and Varela, 1987) and ecopolitics (Morin, 1985, 2020), cultured technology (Del Nord, 1991; Zeleny, 1985), to go beyond the paradigm of the modern city, based on the goals’ partnership required by the UN 2030 Agenda (2015). That is the transition from process control to product control (Nilles, 1988) together with the possible breaking of the synchrony between spaces and times, the foundations of the Informational city (Castells, 1989, 1996, 1997; Beguinot, 1989; Aragona, 1993), opens to new opportunities for the territory (Faggian, 2020; Torre, 2020). So contributing to the elimination of land consumption and to the protection of biodiversity (EU, 2019, 2020), developing operational paths to implement the Glocal (Robertson, 1995), between internal and central areas, based on the circular economy, combining innovation and environment.

The reference to Rhegion, the ancient Greek name of Reggio Calabria, intends to highlight the importance of history and memory for the present and to propose scenarios for a sustainable future linked to cultural, material and intangible heritage. Considering, moreover, that we are in the Region of Bernardino Telesio, author of De rerum natura iuxta propria principia, mentor of Tommaso Campanella, coming from Stilo (RC), who wrote The City of the Sun.
