10th International School
Awareness and Responsibility of Environmental Risk

Now in its tenth edition, the School started in 2008. It is dedicated
to graduate students and graduates in architecture, urban design,
planning, engineering, geography, geology, sociology,
environmental studies as well as business and political science.
The school gives an opportunity to argue on design and
environmental risk factors along with their management. While
working on a case study, students will be guided and supported by
an international and multidisciplinary team of experts and tutors.
The idea of the school derives from the believe that awareness
shall not be left aside by knowledge: to analyse, elaborate, reason,
decide and act, knowledge is an essential scientific presupposition.
To choose deliberately “what, where, why, when, for whom, and
how” we design is the basis of any design process.

Aims
The aim is to raise the awareness of design, management, and
planning issues regarding territories vulnerable to environmental
risks.
Case study // Topic
Solicitude for city pedestrians slips easily and naturally into
preoccupation with problems of traffic-separation. From this
preoccupation, it is only a step to infatuation with tour de forces of
gadgetry on a grandiose city-centre scale. The pedestrians, having
somewhere along the line become metamorphosed from whole
and various human beings into abstract ‘pedestrian traffic’,
became an excuse for a showy but fake, inflexible and limited
pretence at city environment (Jane Jacobs, 1965).
The post-earthquake reconstruction of the city of L’Aquila opens
new perspectives on the issue of walkability and walk ability in
contemporary cities and gives an opportunity to abandon the rigid,
technocratic and abstract paradigm of the ‘pedestrian traffic’
described by Jane Jacobs over half century ago.

5th Young Researchers’ Round Table

It is a conference and workshop for doctoral students, postdoctoral
scholars and junior researchers intended an open forum where
participants can discuss their interests, work, and plans.
There isn’t any thesis to agree or disagree with apart from general
keywords of awareness, responsibility, environment,
environmental risk, vulnerability, resilience and the general topic
of the school to which the conference is the tribute, no rigid
formula but a space where young researchers who share a
common future can meet.
It is obligatory for the participant of the school to attend all the
conference sessions.
