Agenda: Executive Think Tank Workshop “From the Citizen Port to the Port Center Concept” – Leghorn (Italy) – 3rd November 2015
The Port Authority of Leghorn, Assoporti, the Italian Ports Association and AIVP, organise on November 3rd, 2015 the Executive Think Tank Workshop on: “From the Citizen Port to the Port Center Concept”, which will examine the opportunities emerging of the construction of a sustainable port city Relationship.
With the presence of Eamonn O’Reilly, CEO of the Port of Dublin, Henk de Bruijn, Director of Social Affairs of the Port of Rotterdam and several other high-level representatives from the Italian Port Cities, this workshop aims to introduce the emerging opportunities within a sustainable port-city-citizens relationship.
We will address questions like: “Why is there a necessity to rethink the port- city-citizens relationship? How can we develop a shared port city language, image and attractiveness? Which key tools do we need to achieve this? What is the ROI for the port and the city to develop a port culture among citizens? How can a better port city dialogue impact positively on port performance?”
We are looking forward to meeting you on this occasion, and to have the chance to exchange ideas regarding the issues that Italian port cities have to face in a continually evolving society and globalized world, where competition and economic development have to take into consideration indicators such as social impact, employment, education as well as environmental matters.
