Vincenzo CESAREO – Report : Horacio BOZZANO
Natale AMMATURO: Territorial intelligence and culture of development. Introduction to the conference. The sustainable development culture can’t be interpreted as the only model assigned to the territorial intelligence.

The territorial intelligence is a bearer of innovative cultural instances, which are inserted, giving new life to them, on roots of a tradition with which we indicate and recognize the territorial identity.
The territorial intelligence represents and promotes the development of socio-economic-cultural resources of its own territory, selecting and evaluating, in a particular way, those more congruent with developments models whose sustainability depend also on the social habitat demand.

Jean Jacques GIRARDOT: How territorial intelligence will help the combination of the objectives of sustainable development.
The concept of territorial intelligence has been originally based on sustainable development with global approach (multi-disciplines and multi-sectors), participation and partnership.

How can it help to solve the current tension between the objectives of sustainable development and to foster and promote convergence?

The territorial level, which suffers from social and environmental costs, will be the determining scale of this combination, provided the focus welfare of each and all.

11:00 Invited conferences (Room Scienze della formazione Cilento videoconference)

Chairperson: Vincenzo CESAREO – Report : Horacio BOZZANO

Pierpaolo DONATI: The culture of social networks and the development of territorial intelligence in the era of globalization

Pierpaolo DONATI, Università di BOLOGNA, is director of the journal “Sociologia e Politiche Sociali” – Sociology and Social Policy, and member of the board of “International Sociology and innovation”

The conference deals with the issue of the development of Territorial Intelligence (TI) as influenced by the way people and collective actors understand and practice social networking (the ‘culture of social networks’).

As a matter of fact, TI can be viewed basically as a response to the challenges of globalization, in so far as globalization redefines the territorial borders of all political-administrative systems and brings about the ‘reticularization’ of the whole society.

Pierpaolo DONAI argues that we must elaborate a general framework, which can allow us to analyze the TI as a networking system whose success or failure depends on how it works out the culture of social networks in terms of production and/or consumption of social capital in its different forms (primary, secondary, generalized). The building of local welfare systems can provide more or less social cohesion depending on the fact that the culture of social networking be able to produce common goods as relational goods stemming from an emergentist dynamics of social capital.

Oscar MADOERY: Territory, development and politics
Oscar MADOERY, Universidad de ROSARIO Argentina, is the general coordinator of the Network of Territorial Economic Development and Employment in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The idea is to suggest that the global era, we must look differently at the development and act differently from the predominant forms in general in the twentieth century.

Basically it is to combine multiple territorial levels and multiple dimensions of development, to offer more appropriate responses to the challenges of the time.
This policy requires development of new knowledge and greater scope in territorial governance.

Parliament of Mercosur, Juan Manual IRRAZABAL (Argentina), Carmelo BENITEZ (Paraguay), Adriana PEÑA HERNANDEZ (Uruguay): Missions, functions and an University innovating project of Mercosur for sustainable development.

Juan Manual IRRAZABAL is deputy for Argentina in Parliament of Mercosur, President of the Regional Sustainable Development Commission

Carmelo BENITEZ is deputy for Paraguay in Parliament of Mercosur, Vice-president of the Regional Sustainable Development Commission

Adriana PEÑA HERNANDEZ is deputy for Uruguay in Parliament of Mercosur, Member of the Regional Sustainable Development Commission

The Parliamentarians IRRAZABAL and BENITEZ will address the roles and functions of the Commission not only related to the Regional Sustainable Development, but with related issues such as Land Management, Environment, Housing, Tourism, Food, Integration and other issues.

The Parliamentary PEÑA HERNANDEZ will refer to an initiative to create a university MERCOSUR articulating chores scientific work with political-institutional and community referrals to the gestation and incubation of development projects in specific territories.

13:00 Lunch at UNISA Mensa

15:00 Thematic conferences (Room “Aula N. Cilento” videoconference)

Chairperson: Domenico SECONDULFO – Report: Serge GAGNON
Paola DI NICOLA: Fragments of reflexive modernity: keywords
There are words that circulate in the contemporary society, apparently isolated headwords, but in fact plan of a new debate on the modernity, that reconnect in new shapes the relations between individual and individual, between individual and society.

As a consequence new utopia appear, and from a criticism of the effects expected (or not) of the modernity, they allow to define trends and drifts of a society troubled in the search of solutions for problems in which it is more and more difficult to give an answer, remaining attached to the dominant way of thinking.

Franco MARTINELLI: Enjoyment of cultural heritage, contribution of tourism to the development of cities of art

Blanca MIEDES-UGARTE: Territorial governance for the socio-ecological transition

Current societies face major economic and social tensions that are demanding a socio-ecological transition at global level. The conference raises the importance of taking into account the territorial dimension of the causes and effects of these tensions and the need of strengthening mechanisms and instruments of territorial governance to enable a more adapted transition to population needs in each territory.

Serge ORMAUX: “Products of terroir”, between environment, culture and territorial development

In the double context of globalization and socio-ecological transition, numerous territories are in search of models of development granting a larger place in social dimension, in environment, in culture, and generally in immaterial resources. In this regard, the mode of development constructed on the promotion of “terroir products” appears as a particularly promising way; on condition of course that the reference to the “terroir” is not a simple argument of marketing in the service of a product but the support of a true project of territory.

Chairperson: Tullia SACCHERI – Report: Blanca MIEDES

Roberto LAVARINI: Lights and shades respect the idea of sustainability

It is from a lot that speaks of environmental sustainability and the virtuous behaviors they are slowly taking root in the daily life of the people, at least as it regards the west. You also knows that, if these behaviors won’t be shared from the greatest part of the citizens, every effort it will be destined to fail for which both the public powers and the enterprises of the agricultural and productive sector they are activating for limiting the damages of the development. It is not however the same thing in the tourism. Our give searches on the field revolts to the tours operator during the 2006 Bit and repeated in 2009, it results that many tours operator, the great majority, also being to personal level convinced of the necessity to defend the environment both physicist how social, to preserve it for the populations live it, to advantage of theirs and our children, they have not appeared determined to concretely operate in this sense. The cause alleged more frequently is type economic: being their profit notably meeting places in comparison to the producers of other goods, are incapable to bear the costs that every variation, every innovation involves.

Proceedings of Salerno 2009

Acts of the Annual International Conference Salerno 2009

As the deadline of the FP7 last call for projects was set for February 2, 2010, the conference of Salerno was the scientific meeting where the members of ENTI discussed and validated the axes and activities of ENTI and of the ENTI project for FP7 (which is become ” Future Jobs For a better LIFE”). The day of Wednesday, November 4 2009, was organized to that end.

This event was the seventh annual international conference of Territorial intelligence.

It has presented a new theme whose relevance has progressively increased during the last years : the place of culture in sustainable territorial development.

The communications presented during the conference were divided according to five themes:

  • Topic A: State of the art of territorial intelligence
  • Topic B: From knowledge of territories to territorial action (knowledge, information and indicators, analytical methods, operating tools, decision-making process)
  • Topic C: Territorial governance, vulnerable populations and territories voltage
  • Topic D: Culture, tourism and sustainable territorial development (culture as fourth pillar of sustainable development, governance and cultural diversity, heritage and development, access to culture and cultural development of the territory, cultural tourism and sustainable development)
  • Topic E: combining economic, social and environmental objectives of sustainable development in the context of the socio-ecological transition: changes in job areas and in local systems of employment and welfare.

(Topic E) A rural area of social processes present in the Sellye region, in Hungary. Csilla FILO

1. Introduction

1.1. Theory and objectives

In countries which can be characterised by market economy there is a naturally concomitant rate of minor or major presence of unemployment. In Hungary basically at the same time with the political transformation the open unemployment. Inside the country the socio-economic processes of the transformation were not going on equally in space and time so the appearance, culmination and fluctuation of unemployment shows significant differences. A gradual decrease could be observed in the country’s Western regions after the nationwide peak point of unemployment in 1993. Despite in the Ormánság and the micro-region of Sellye within – examined by me – the rate of unemployment by the first years of the XXI. century remained over 30%., moreover more people get out from the labour market and become inactive in the area, which takes part in the marginalisation of the areas.

One of the biggest challenges in the subject of social transformation is connected to a genuine way of achieving it. How do you plan a concrete action – a specific project ? that represents a deeply felt need for a group, when that action may be the object of institutionalization lead by a political power and/or of intermediate organizations and at the same time the object of an effort to construct solid and applied scientific knowledge? Is it possible to construct socialscientific investigations that contemplate the needs of the actors while incorporating investigative guidelines responsible for bring about change?(…)

Understanding Coastal Spaces Through Territorial Heritage. Case Study Of The Metropolitan Region Of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Claudia Beatriz CARUT

In this paper we intend to detect spatial valorization trends and their territorial “weight” in the fluvial and estuarial front of the Metropolitan Region of Buenos Aires as a way to differentiate coastal subspaces elucidating the “weight of heritages”.We start by reflecting on the space in motion, defined from its complexity. This makes us think about the metropolitan coast as a process that leads to morphological changes, due not only to the structuring cycles present in every metropolis but also to the characteristics transmitted by “territorial heritages” and the new emerging configurations (Carut, 2003 b).

Thinking about the motion and complexity of a territory allows us to conceptualize the space through the work of Doreen Massey (2005), based on three propositions:

  • Space results from interrelationships, regardless of the scale.
  • Space is the sphere of possibility for the existence of multiplicity.
  • Because space is the product of “interrelations”, it is always being made, becoming, never finished and never closed.

Regardless of its scale, the territory is a product of the interaction among actors, agents and social groups through time.

This argument allows for the perception of the historical expression of a territory because the territorial organization is the consequence of an expression of the valorization of space made by the actors, agents and social groups through time. Thinking about the territorial organization as a process loaded with historicity implies the study of territorial transformations that allow to decipher those judgments and to understand that such spatial organization has historically favored some areas to the detriment of others (Carut, 2003 a). One possible way to make this idea operational is to understand space as “the matrix resulting from the intertwining of a territorial configuration and a spatial organization” (Cóccaro, J. and Agüero, R, 1998:83). Where the arrangement or distribution of natural and social objects “situated” in a moment is the expressed consequence of the reproduction of the spatial structure that derives from power relationships between sectors with particular interests (Cóccaro, J. y Agüero, R, 1998).

The analysis can be placed within the historical process of conformation of the Argentine territory. The role played by the relationships between power and decision structures, multi-scalar and multinational, becomes an essential part of it, as well as the degree of “adaptive” insertion of the Argentine space in this context, in accordance with the characteristics and the “climate of ideas” that define the historical stages (Stagnearo, et al. 2000).Starting from the ideas previously sketched, we propose the following course to decipher the characteristics of the current spatial organization in our territory of analysis: the determination of the structuring axes of historic spatial valorization trends and the identification, in the current spatial organization, of territorial heritages.To delineate the spatial valorization trends and elucidate their “territorial imprints” we take into account the historical average of occurrence of significant facts that have established, in our opinion, the base for their organization. When we mention average historical facts we mean the impact of “significant” facts, within the same historical stage, that links the variables and their time-space context in a dialectical way. “The reconstruction of the successive time-space sequences is essential to determine the historical content of the territorial today and to decipher the different historical weights of the times compressed into it”. (Stagnearo et al, 2000:3).

The Argentine economy has been an “economy of adaptation”, its basic behavior was, and still is, that of adjusting to opportunities created by other economies. The technological behavior, adaptive and belated, tried to “accommodate” to “major innovations” and not to create them.This behavior has not led to a process of development phases or cycles, but to a series of “booms” or “bubbles” that, when they wear out, leave just a few isolated “drops” of technical and productive capacity instead of a new style of capacities on top of which a new development cycle could be generated. (Azpiazu, D and Nochetff, H; 1994: 27). This adaptive expansion bubbles were molded by an economic elite that was particularly flexible to adapt to the changes of the international economy and to identify and exploit “soft options”, creating monopolies that weren’t eroded by competition. Azpiazu and Nochetff (1994) define, through Argentine history, three bubbles: the one driven by the exporting of primary products; that of the import substitution industrialization led by transnational companies; and the bubble driven or led by external borrowing. It is worth mentioning that even though these authors don’t refer to the time span before 1852 it must be considered in our work, because it is in this stage that the first imprints were made in our space of analysis.
