Title of Challenge
Circular Resources for Torino: long life for products through more virtuous behaviours by the PA, businesses and citizens
Description of city challenge
IL CONTESTO: ECONOMIA CIRCOLARE E CONSUMATORE CONSAPEVOLE
Attraverso un nuovo modello economico di produzione e consumo, l’economia circolare, è possibile generare valore economico (quindi occupazione e reddito) attraverso un modello di business sostenibile (a livello ambientale così come sociale), che, tra le altre cose,:
• Aumenti il ciclo di vita dei prodotti
• Generi valore nei beni usati, anche evitando che divengano rifiuti
• Favorisca il riciclo e il riuso dei materiali grezzi e dei prodotti di dettaglio
• Aumenti la consapevolezza dei cittadini rispetto al consumo consapevole

LA SFIDA DI TORINO
Concepito come un “policy hackaton”, il climathon di Torino rappresenterà l’occasione per elaborare e produrre soluzioni integrate rispetto al tema del riciclo e riuso in una duplice prospettiva:
a) Individuare gli strumenti di policy e le regolamentazioni che possano favorire la costruzione di una strategia verso lo “zero waste” e accrescere la consapevolezza dei cittadini rispetto ai modelli di consumo (policy redesign)
b) Elaborare nuovi modelli di prodotti e business plan che possano favorire la transizione verso un’economia circolare e uno sviluppo sostenibile (product redesign)
Le soluzioni proposte potranno includere sia soluzioni innovative di natura tecnologica o sociale sia di business model.
Le tematiche pur affrontando due ambiti specifici di riflessione e progettazione saranno entrambe finalizzate a proporre soluzioni innovative e concretamente realizzabili, anche attraverso attività di follow up quale premio per i vincitori della challenge.

CLIMATHON TORINO: LA PARTNERSHIP
La challenge di Torino è costruita attraverso un percorso partecipato con i partner dell’iniziativa e con gli stakeholder coinvolti e in particolare: Città di Torino (proponente); Environment Park (delivery partner); Partner scientifici: Istituto Superiore Mario Boella; Open Incet; Politecnico di Torino; Triciclo SCS; Università degli Studi di Torino; Intesa Sanpaolo; Fondazione Torino Wireless.

COSA SUCCEDERÀ DURANTE IL CLIMATHON TORINO
I partecipanti all'evento, suddivisi in team di lavoro, avranno il compito di individuare soluzioni di policy (raccomandazioni per i politici/amministratori) o di business (innovativi sia come modello, sia come utilizzo delle tecnologie, sia per il contenuto sociale) o ibride. Le idee emerse saranno quindi selezionate da una giuria che premierà quella che più risponderà agli obiettivi della challenge.
Supporteranno la costruzione delle idee dei team diverse tipologie di esperti che interverranno durante l’evento: esperti di economia circolare, gestione dei rifiuti, riciclo&riuso, e amministratori locali già impegnati nel settore forniranno gli elementi conoscitivi (dati, informazioni tecniche e buone prassi) indispensabili per produrre idee coerenti e fattibili. Uno o più esperti di hackathon animeranno l’evento garantendo sia il supporto metodologico sia gli aspetti organizzativi e di contenuto.

TIMELINE
ATTENZIONE! La Challenge durerà 24 ore: inizierà alle ore 14 di GIOVEDI 27 OTTOBRE per concludersi alle 14 di VENERDI 28 OTTOBRE. A breve verrà pubblicata su questa pagina l’agenda dei lavori.

ISCRIZIONI
Le iscrizioni saranno aperte fino a venerdì 21 ottobre esclusivamente a questo link: https://climathon.climate-kic.org/join/steps/1

THE CONTEXT: THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY AND THE RESPONSIBLE CONSUMER
Thanks to a new economic model of production and consumption, the circular economy, it is possible to generate economic value (ie employment and income) through sustainable business models (in the environment as well as social sphere), that, among other things,:
• Increase the product life cycle
• Create value in used goods, avoiding they become a waste
• Favor the recycling and reuse of raw materials and retail products
• Increase the awareness of citizens with regard to consumer awareness

TURIN CHALLENGE
Conceived as “policy hackaton”, Turin Climathon will be an opportunity to develop and produce integrated solutions regarding the theme of recycling and reuse in a double perspective:
a) Identify policy tools and regulations which would facilitate the construction of a strategy towards the "zero waste" and raise awareness of citizens with regard to consumption patterns (redesign policy);
b) Develop new product models and business plans that can foster the transition towards a circular economy and sustainable development (product redesign).
The solutions will include innovative solutions of technological or social nature, and or business models.
The two challenge, even are addressing to two specific areas of reflection and design will both aim to offer innovative and feasible solutions, also through follow-up activities as a reward for the winners of the challenge.

THE PARTNERSHIP
The challenge of Turin is built through a process involving partners and stakeholders and namely: City of Turin (coordinator); Environment Park(delivery partner); Istituto Superiore Mario Boella; Open INCET; Politecnico di Torino; Triciclo SCS; Università degli Studi di Torino; Intesa Sanpaolo; Torino Wireless Foundation.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN
The participants, divided into work teams, will have the task of identifying policy solutions (recommendations for politicians/administrators) or business ideas (innovative as a model, for the use of technology and for the social content) or hybrid ones. Then the selected ideas will be evaluated by a jury that will award the most complying to the objectives of the challenge.
Different kind of experts will support the teams: circular economy, waste management, recycling and reuse experts, and local administrators already working in the field will provide the cognitive elements (data, technical information and best practices) needed to produce coherent and feasible ideas. One or more experts in hackathon events will ensure both methodological and organizational support.

TIMELINE AND REGISTRATION
WARNING! The Challenge will last 24 hours: opening at 14.00 on Thursday 27 October will ends at 14.00 on Friday 28 October. The timeline of the event will be published on this page soon.

REGISTRATION
Registration will be open until Friday, October 21 only by this link: https://climathon.climate-kic.org/join/steps/1
City Host Organization
Turin, with its 908.000 inhabitants and with a GDP of 55.000 million Euro, is one of the most significant cities in Italy. The municipality is structured around about 15 General Division and more than 60 Departments. As public authority, the Municipality manages a lot of services in different areas (care of the territory, social and economic development, environment, mobility, innovation…). Since 2009, with the signature of the Covenant of Mayor and the following draft of “Turin Action Plan for Energy”, Turin is strongly committed to become a “smarter city”, fostering a sustainable, intelligent and inclusive urban growth. Moreover, in the last 5 years, the City of Torino settled an “ Open Innovation strategy” leveraging on collaborative knowledge and action, creating a multi-actor local ecosystem as well as a new open culture nurtured by the PA and the territory. The strategy follows a three step pathway:
1) the construction of the stakeholder network and the definition of a shared strategic roadmap for innovation, thanks to the SMILE – Smart Mobility Life&heath and Energy” involvement process and master plan;
2) the consolidation of open, integrated and collaborative processes and tools through a targeted set of innovation initiatives, co-developed by the City, among which:
- Smart Procurement Policy: to diffuse the strategic use of Public Procurement to deliver smart Innovation (PPI)
- TSI-FaciliTO: a mentoring and funding programme for social startuppers
- Open Incet: the first Italian centre of open innovation, where the quadruple helix actors collaborate to solve urban challenges.
- Smart Living Lab Initiative: a new administrative framework to allow Public Private Partnerships (PPP) to co-develop innovative solutions for smart communities.
3) Territorial participation in innovative policies, also trough the deployment of ICT based solutions and interactivity (e.g. deployment and diffusion of a new local social network called First Life based on an interactive map of neighbourhoods, developed by the University of Turin).

More recently, a new Regulations of common goods has been issued and represent a new framework for involving active citizens (business; associations; group of citizens) in the care of territorial assets.
Within this context the City of Torino is willing to define a strategic policy to trigger circular economy processes and practices within the administration and among businesses and citizens.

City Host Organization
Turin, with its 908.000 inhabitants and with a GDP of 55.000 million Euro, is one of the most significant cities in Italy. The municipality is structured around about 15 General Division and more than 60 Departments. As public authority, the Municipality manages a lot of services in different areas (care of the territory, social and economic development, environment, mobility, innovation…). Since 2009, with the signature of the Covenant of Mayor and the following draft of “Turin Action Plan for Energy”, Turin is strongly committed to become a “smarter city”, fostering a sustainable, intelligent and inclusive urban growth. Moreover, in the last 5 years, the City of Torino settled an “ Open Innovation strategy” leveraging on collaborative knowledge and action, creating a multi-actor local ecosystem as well as a new open culture nurtured by the PA and the territory. The strategy follows a three step pathway:
1) the construction of the stakeholder network and the definition of a shared strategic roadmap for innovation, thanks to the SMILE – Smart Mobility Life&heath and Energy” involvement process and master plan;
2) the consolidation of open, integrated and collaborative processes and tools through a targeted set of innovation initiatives, co-developed by the City, among which:
- Smart Procurement Policy: to diffuse the strategic use of Public Procurement to deliver smart Innovation (PPI)
- TSI-FaciliTO: a mentoring and funding programme for social startuppers
- Open Incet: the first Italian centre of open innovation, where the quadruple helix actors collaborate to solve urban challenges.
- Smart Living Lab Initiative: a new administrative framework to allow Public Private Partnerships (PPP) to co-develop innovative solutions for smart communities.
3) Territorial participation in innovative policies, also trough the deployment of ICT based solutions and interactivity (e.g. deployment and diffusion of a new local social network called First Life based on an interactive map of neighbourhoods, developed by the University of Turin).

More recently, a new Regulations of common goods has been issued and represent a new framework for involving active citizens (business; associations; group of citizens) in the care of territorial assets.
Within this context the City of Torino is willing to define a strategic policy to trigger circular economy processes and practices within the administration and among businesses and citizens.
