"...we continued the understanding that renewable non-depletable material leading to revolutionized change is one source of longevity."
A Quick Run-Down
The discussion revolved mainly around circular economy and how it does or could apply here in Naples. Of the many topics that came up throughout the night, some included the importance of a recycling economy and the benefits of surveying and mapping. A recycling economy entails the productivity of regulations placed on the balance between natural and industrial resources flowing in and waste emission. The successful implementation of circular methods could produce communities built on stable infrastructure and institutions. How can this be done? One way that was discussed was the surveying and mapping of areas and land that are not in use or have been vacated. Letting valuable land and buildings to sit still hinders the possibility of creating a circular economy, while engaging in architectural modifications or construction can be the first step in innovative change that communities can benefit from. Since the initiative to map out empty areas only began in the 1990’s in Naples much of the possible change has been slow and complicated. However, first steps are never easy and productive change needs to start somewhere.
By reflecting on recycling land, as well as technological products, and creating multiple continuous lives past the initial need for a product, we continued the understanding that renewable non-deplatable material leading to revolutionized change is one source of longevity. Another source of improvement discussed was the perspective gap between the younger community demographic and local government, where ideas on change and what is needed for strengthened community differ. In order to create collaboration between the two, positive communication is key.
