10th FAMILY FESTIVAL OF TRENTO
November 29 - December 3
The “measures” of social, economic and demographic sustainability in the post-Covid19 period. Policies and indicators for the competitiveness and quality of life of territories
To cope with the health, social and economic shock produced by the Covid- 19 pandemic, governments have adopted expansionary ‘measures’ aimed at strengthening the health systems, preserving the productive system, safeguarding jobs and household income. The extraordinary and exceptional ‘measures’ contained in the recovery and resilience plans provide for huge investments and major reforms, with the aim of modernising public administration, strengthening the productive system and intensifying efforts to combat poverty and social exclusion by fostering social cohesion processes. The 2021 Family Festival (tenth edition) will focus on the “measures” adopted/to be adopted to guarantee social, economic and above all demographic sustainability in the post-Covid19 period, and will initiate a debate with institutes expert in “measurements”, to discuss the impacts produced by the “measures”.
A week of events, conferences and seminars to give voice to the “measures” and “measurements” activated on a local, national and European scale. The aim is to have a scientific debate with the main organisations involved in data analysis, reporting and assessment, in order to make up for the limited aptitude present in our country for measuring performance and using data and figures to take more informed decisions.
The key words are therefore “understanding” and “awareness”, to help public decision-makers take the best “measures” in order to adequately respond to the needs of the community, increase competitiveness, support the socio-economic development of the territories and raise the quality of life of citizens and families. With reference to the combination of “pandemic” and “quality of life”, there are two closely interconnected dimensions. The first has to do with the major changes produced by the Covid pandemic in fundamental aspects of human life (social relations, self-fulfilment, etc.). The second shows that Covid has made territories that offer services supporting the “quality of life” of citizens and families more attractive. In this second case, the focus will be on what territories can offer in terms of infrastructure, good governance, education, welfare, safety and security, environmental quality, culture and opportunities for citizens and families. The pandemic has taught us that, alongside economic factors, the “measure” of the quality of life is and will increasingly be an important component of the attractiveness of a territory, because it attracts individuals, families and businesses to that territory, to the detriment of the territory of origin, thus generating capital for the development of the chosen territory.
