The Residency in Naples aims to investigate innovative models of governance and management that are based on collaboration, cooperation and the active involvement of communities, and which encourage the implementation of strategies for promoting innovative forms of social cohesion and spatial regeneration in urban contexts.

The programme is designed for 18-35-year-old cultural heritage students, professionals, stakeholders and protagonists of territorial regeneration experiences in Europe and beyond, with an affinity for the theme of the initiative and the Faro Convention.

The peer-learning methodology of the programme is designed to stimulate interaction, collaborative learning and solution-building. The participants will discuss their successful local policies and projects, top tips, pitfalls and failures, as well as share their own local experiences, in a private and friendly expert environment. Selected participants will get useful information and ideas for improving or initiating local projects or transferring some of the presented practices.

The Programme will include meetings with local stakeholders, site visits and solution-building workshops.
