Sandra Vecchietti, INU Emilia-Romagna President

The leading players at the meeting are the General Town Planning Plans that some municipal administrations are drawing up to implement, in their territories, those policies for urban regeneration and to combat land consumption, the need for which is now unanimously shared. In order to effectively pursue this objective, in Emilia-Romagna Regional Law no. 24/2017 has given an innovative approach to urban planning and promoted a general review of local planning. A real paradigm shift that introduces other issues of great topicality and interest in municipal planning, such as the fight against climate change, ecosystem services and ecological-environmental equipment.
The general curiosity that the Emilia-Romagna law aroused when it came into force now has the possibility of finding a first concrete satisfaction in the activities undertaken by the Administrations of some of the cities that have always been among the most attentive to the government of their territory.
