Abstract

The traditional forms of government are no longer able to deal with the needs of modern societies and are showing their limits for regulating and planning in realities that are continually more complex and fragmented. In response to these difficulties the research project PANDORA (- PArticipary Network and Databases fOr environmental Research and Assessment-) aims at experimenting with innovative forms of participation by exploiting the potential of New Information and Communication Technologies (NICT). The challenge for PANDORA is thus to use the Web to inform communicate and cooperate about themes linked to local sustainability, activating a process of e-governance. PANDORA is an on-line space for moving news and data about one's own city, but above all for collecting "voices", perceptions, ideas and possible "alternative paths" for development that is both sustainable and at the same time participatory. The project is based on the use of the on-line tool located at the following address: www.feempandora.it. To each action for local self-sustainability PANDORA dedicates some pages in the website where it is possible to take part in a debate with a posting system; participate in dedicated surveys; access reviews of texts or websites linked to the subject; and propose concrete actions for intervention in the territory.
