FOSTERING THE CITY’S COMMON GOODS

(FINALIST 2019) Young people become active citizens and help foster their city's heritage.

Over five weeks in the summer of 2019 and 2020, young people, 14-19 years old, can apply to become Active Citizens in the care of their city. 380 young people are involved this year, with the same number or more expected to participate next summer. The Council coordinates the identification of Common Goods to be enhanced, through the expertise of the central and
territorial offices, creating a synergy between institutions, youth and communities. The interventions are intended to foster the City’s common heritage, both material (maintenance of street furniture such as benches, gates and public playgrounds), and immaterial (urban greenery).
