Urban regeneration: the social impact project begins with the Region of Tuscany and Caritas

innovation1-480x177Fondazione Etica has begun experimenting with social impact innovation together with the Region of Tuscany, Caritas, Confindustria, a bank and now also the Fondazione Italia Sociale. Two years of work took us to bring everyone together around the same table, on the same project, to create a local organizing committee and, above all, to agree on the desire to innovate the way of doing social, transforming it into an occasion for development.
The Tuscany Region has finally published the tender for the assignment of a disused public building and has recently been assigned to that Committee. Now a bank is preparing a dedicated bond and the subscription will start.
Then the renovations will begin and finally the opening of the activities.
Meanwhile, here is a brief description of the project.
