1 GENOA EUROMED SMART CITY Open Days 2010 workshop "Smart Sustainable Cities and Regions" Antonio Parodi, EU Adviser to the Mayor of Genoa

2 Genoa's profile and sustainable development guidelines/references EU Projects about urban planning and mobility The way forward: Genoa Euromed Smart City Some conclusions Open Days 2010 workshop "Smart Sustainable Cities and Regions"

3 Genoa is the Capital city of the Region Liguria Population Land area240 km² The most important Italian port and one of the main euromediterranean harbours One of the biggest historical centre in Europe, The city lies between the sea and mountains along a narrow coastline The urban environment is definitively influenced by this topography and it is concentrating mainly in coastline area and in two valleys. Urban centre: Land area 28 km² (12%), population (46%) density more than residents per km². Open Days 2010 workshop "Smart Sustainable Cities and Regions" Genoas metropolitan area is a complex city-region system

4 Open Days 2010 workshop "Smart Sustainable Cities and Regions"

5 New Development Policy of the present City Council STRATEGIC URBAN PLANNING as the main tool to mainstream Sustainable Development Priority: Urban Rehabilitation Sectorial Projects with some environmental impacts Till 2007 Towards a more holistic view

6 Urban Planning – Guidelines Future Genoa is a sustainable city The Green Line and the Blue Line: enhancing relationships between urban environment and green areas and marine environment Construction on existing buildings Giving priority to public trasport over private transport Big projects and Small projects Urban Quality as driver of rehabilitation projects Social Integration as driver of urban planning Competitions as a tool for open and effective participation Open Days 2010 workshop "Smart Sustainable Cities and Regions"

7 Urban Lab is the laboratory for urban planning designed by Renzo Piano, that carries out research on city change and plans according to sustainable development principles. Its main participatory instrument is the Board of Ideas chaired by the City Mayor and supervised by Renzo Piano and Richard Burdett Open Days 2010 workshop "Smart Sustainable Cities and Regions"

8 Participants: Genoa, Athens, Thessaloniki, Malaga, Sevilla, Valencia, Barcelona, Marseille, Community of Pays dAix, Turin, Rome May 2009-February 2011 Objectives: - preventing natural risks linked to climate change - limiting the environmental impact of urbanization process - reducing GHG emissions Phases: 1. Elaboration of a common system of indicators 2. Experimentation of a pilot project named Green Apple (Sustainable District); 3. Elaboration of a methodological guide on Sustainable Districts with a related charter signed by the Mayors of the participant cities Open Days 2010 workshop "Smart Sustainable Cities and Regions"

9 Participants: Manchester, Oldham, Malmo, Murcia, Genoa, Thessaloniki, Amaroussion, Katowice The Partnership Energy Planning as a tool for realising European Sustainable Energy Communities (PEPESEC) project support the emergence of European sustainable energy communities through increasing the use of local community planning for the efficient supply, distribution and use of RES (Renewable Energy Sources) and conventional energy, demand-side management and associated mobility. January June 2010 A project based on a vision-led approach promoting the significant economic, social and environmental benefits of developing a low- carbon economy and shaping a sustainable energy community. From the wider use of existing best practice energy planning methodologies (from Sweden and wider EU) to their further development through the addition of innovative techniques to facilitate the involvement of citizens, politicians, market actors and other stakeholders whose buy-in and actions are required for effective plan delivery. Innovation is a significant feature of the engagement process through marrying the best of LA21/Sustainable Community Strategy learning with latest tools and techniques for multi- stakeholder strategic plan development.

10 Open Days 2010 workshop "Smart Sustainable Cities and Regions" Port Energy and Environmental Plan (PEAP) aims at promoting RES and energy efficiency over the whole harbour area. Through the definition of a specific action programme and an awareness raising scheme adressed to all the port operators The action programme will develop the regulatory framework, the environmental impact assessment, building assessment, operational guidelines, communication tools and training. One major tecnical objective is the electrification of most of the port operations dramatically reducing emisssions from ship combustion engines.

11 Participants: Genoa, Burgos, Krakow and Stuttgart, and their public transport operators, industrial partners and research institutions Open Days 2010 workshop "Smart Sustainable Cities and Regions" Implementation of 55 policy measures Large-scale demonstrators with a substantial impact will be implemented (e.g. extension of access restricted zones coupled with enforcement, road and parking pricing, freight distribution schemes). The use of clean vehicles for freight, high volume PT and flexible services are demonstrated (Genoa: 20 large clean EURO IV buses on High Mobility Corridors, 30 medium-sized methane buses for flexible and inner-city services, 30 hybrid cars to be used for car sharing and electrical vehicles as buses and freight vans). Demonstrations are highly integrated in few demonstration areas and some city-wide activities. Emphasis is on measures with strong impact on the modal split in the cities, and restriction of private car use. High visibility and profile is ensured through publicity and awareness raising schemes.

12 Sustainable Energy Action Plan SEAP in July 2010 Open Days 2010 workshop "Smart Sustainable Cities and Regions" GENOA Signatory City of the Convenant of Mayors in 2009

13 Genova Città Digitale Pooling the City ITC resources to implement the Green Digital Charter Open Days 2010 workshop "Smart Sustainable Cities and Regions"

14 The way forward: Open Days 2010 workshop "Smart Sustainable Cities and Regions" Genova Smart City Convenant of Mayors Implementing the holistic approach For major breakthrough towards GENOVA FUTURA One of the most sustainable EUROMED Cities in 2020

15 LONG TERM SUSTAINABLE URBAN PLANNING PRIVATE PUBLIC PARTNERSHIP PARTICIPATORY APPROACH Open Days 2010 workshop "Smart Sustainable Cities and Regions" Genova Smart City

16 Two types of choices seem to me to have been crucial in tipping their outcomes towards succes or failure: long term planning and willingness to reconsider core values....a lower-impact society is the most impossible scenario for our future – except for all other conceivable scenarios.
