Systemic Design for the promotion of the UNESCO Piedmont district
In Piedmont, more than 30% of the territory is characterised by the presence of UNESCO sites and recognitions. The project aims to promote the connection and exchange of experiences between regional recognitions to contribute to the sustainable and integrated economic development of the territories hosting them. Systemic Design applied on a local scale fosters a model of Circular Economy involving the regional productive actors.
The mapping of regional sites and recognitions has made it possible to define a methodological framework capable of bringing together actors, supply chains and institutions, encouraging dialogue and promoting the co-planning of strategies for the promotion of the area.
