"Analysing the development model of Trentino and the role of local organizations in favour of the participatory and circular economy".
That is the goal of the agreement signed by Acli trentine and the Department of Economics and Management of the University of Trento.
This grant takes inspiration from the idea of common good described in the encyclical letter "Laudato Si" by Pope Francis, and aims to explore the concepts of circular economy, civil and sustainable economy to identify possible actions that can be implemented in Trentino.
Acli, through Acli Servizi Trentino, will provide funding for the grant (23,800 euro) to conduct research to:
- examine publications on the theme of the common good and integral ecology and their perception at the local level
- identify specific guidelines to implement a sustainable development model in the Province of Trento
- identify the potential contribution of Acli and of its local branches (Circoli territoriali) to strengthen the circular economy and integral ecology as recommended and encouraged by Pope Francis.
The Department of Economics and Management (DEM) of UniTrento will select the beneficiary through an international selection procedure and will provide the office space to conduct the research work.
Candidates must hold a Master's degree in economics, law, social sciences or relevant subjects, have some research experience and an excellent command of the Italian language, good command of English. Professor Mariangela Franch will monitor the research progress and supervise the grant holder's work as tutor.
This research grant is part of a wider project developed by Acli trentine to bring about a change in the current development model.
The themes of responsibility toward future generations, the reconstruction of community ties, sustainability, and the circular economy, will also be the focus of the next provincial congress of Acli trentine, which will take place in Trento on 24 October.
