CPModel Project

Project Objectives

The CP MODEL Project operates with a European Partnership to create relevant products such as:

  • A Resilience Map of criticalities: to have a practical and scientific proved starting point for analysing and verifying the reasons that make difficult to adopt strategies addressed to increase the level of auto-organization of the response in case of natural and anthropogenic crisis.
  • A Resilience MOOC (Massive Open On-line Courses) Platform that will contain courses, guidelines and operative information. The platform support the learning of practices and procedures tackled to involve a large scale category of people, experts and volunteers.
  • A Guide about how to use the open structured resources addressed to the local communities and stakeholders: Practices and experiences; Micro-blogging contents; Massive training materials organized in structured courses provided in all the languages involved and with an active and interactive tutorship; Interactive spaces and exchange modules where the expert can share information and ideas, On-demand training resources and Video resources.
  • A Resilience On-Line Learning Game called “Resident security” (the game of the resilient towns), an innovative product that aims to complete the learning offer. It has the main goal to disseminate the concept of resilience as a common and accepted idea and not as something addressed basically to specialists and professionals. The philosophy of the Game is quite simple, the player is a major or a leader of a community and his/her first task is to adapt and create a strategy to be prepared in case of unpredictable situations and crisis. The idea is that a leader/player cannot predict, but he/she can learn how to be prepared from other scenarios and past situations.

The objective of these tools is not to merely create a learning space with learning resources but above all to provide practical and applicative Guidelines containing indications and suggestions about how to stimulate the debate and how to find solutions in the application of strategies towards the resilience.

The ability of a Municipality, a Community to be resilient is also based also in its open-focusing attention in what other community have done and what are the wrong processes adopted to be not repeated. The circularity of information, the practice of open learning and the dissemination of positive experiences is really important especially for those towns that don’t have the opportunity to be connected daily with the centers of knowledge. The objective of CP MODEL with the realization of its products, is to contribute to the diffusion of the towards-resilience practices and to implement cooperation among people to change the approach to a resilience strategy.
