Experimenting on the Recovery from Territorial marginalisation. The Case of the B.A.R.E.G.A Project Action Group (Sulcis - Sardinia)

Anna Maria Colavitti, Fabio Parascandolo

Abstract


Sardinia is going through one of its worst crises in recent history. Several telltale signs of hardship may be listed here: growing unemployment rates, a precarious job market, the reduction of qualified jobs and delayed, if not wholly hindered, young workforce participation into the productive market. Such elements appear to be on the verge of igniting explosive social conflicts within the territory and surrounding communities. The context thus far outlined has served as backdrop to some initiatives by local committees and citizen associations who have gathered with the aim to reinvent an environmentally and responsibly sustainable communal life. The B.A.R.E.G.A. Project Action Group “Bio Architecture, Economic Network, Action Group” promotes research into environmentally friendly, renewable and sustainable alternatives to living solutions and a variety of activities poignant from a cultural, social, financial and environmental point of view.
