The first step was the preparation of the SEAP - Plan of Action for the Sustainable Energy - which analyzes and measures the state of the art in 2005 and identifies actions that will bring the necessary corrections for environmental protection, such as: A commercial port that can reduce emissions and open up to the public The improvement of freight and people transport by train The sustainable restoration of the old town Support for zero-impact buildings and neighbourhoods Smart grids and local energy production An efficient energy saving public lighting system

7 7 KEY CITY POLICIES: SAFE CITY Education for citizenship and the rule of law, particularly in schools Prevention through social (i.e. streetwork education project) and neighborhood rehabilitation (i.e. presidi di legalità), through the defense of the territory (neighborhood cameras, intelligent system of video surveillance and alarm on public transport; parking sensor system for people with disabilities; fraud management system for the elderly) and through the full and sincere cooperation with the Police Active participation of citizens in their own safety (i.e. definition of a model, unique in Italy, which provides integration between the different actors that overlap and coordinate the management of territorial presence, each with different skills, with different objectives, in areas and territorial different times)

8 8 BACKGROUND OF EGOVERNMENT POLICY AND INITIATIVES ISAAC: ISAAC is a multi-disciplinary project aiming to valorise cultural assets as tourism resources through user-friendly and stakeholder-relevant e-services. Creation of a multimedia web platform aimed at promoting tourism in the territory. Genova Wi-Fi and Winnovate: The service is open to residents, but it is also the first brick to do local marketing to the extent that the "request for enhanced connectivity" is increasingly part of the habits of people who travel for business or pleasure. City Wi-Fi system where people can connect to the Internet for free for two hours according to the rules laid down by the "Free Italia Wi-Fi " to which we adhered. ICity: Involvement of new User-Driven Open Innovation ecosystems in supporting the widest possible creation of public interest services available in urban areas of Smart Cities.

16 16 THE GENOA PILOTS CHALLENGE The aim is to develop an environmental protection system, in terms of hydrological risk, based on the area of Fort Santa Tecla The recent experience of the flooding showed how the traditional system of governance enabled from the city for the management of environmental emergencies must make some adjustments Municipality of Genoa, the first level of contact and accountability to local citizens, must adapt itself to climate change, going to redefine risk and emergency management protocols, in order to consider, then to communicate the true meaning of the alert levels The role of the Municipality as an activator and driving force of solidarity networks (neighbors, owners of safe buildings and facilities,...), in order to build an informal system of social protection ready to take action if necessary

17 17 THE GENOA PILOTS CHALLENGE Our main goals are: Increased awareness on climate change and environmental risk at formal and informal level Increased solidarity system Raised feelings of shared responsibility in risk management activities Raised feelings of shared responsibility in decision making process on risk management behaviors
