Local co-planning network in Santorso
On December 10th, 2019, the local workshop entitled “Local co-planning network” took place in Santorso.
The activity consisted in an operative meeting of the new born “local co-planning network", composed by 28 local governments (administrators and technicians) and other public authorities that work together in the development of projects on the social and environmental field. This initiative has been identified by Santorso, which represents the lead partner of the network, as an effective financial tool to be implemented to face economic crises. During the meeting, the objectives and priorities of the network have been discussed, with a specific focus on the benefits deriving from the collaboration and cooperation among different local stakeholders that share a common goal: the improvement of the territory and its people.
The participants agreed on the creation of an in-depth mapping of the existing social services in the municipalities involved to optimize the service and save resources. Furthermore, it has been decided that an ad-hoc questionnaire will be elaborated to collect information on people perception and satisfaction of the existing services.
The active participation of key members of the third sector has allowed to tighten the cooperation with the local governments and the other public authorities on the provision of enhanced social services to the local population. The participants identified key areas of interventions that will be the target of some new projects that are about to start.
