During the Italian National Week of Civil Protection, the Institute of International Sociology of Gorizia (ISIG) and the Municipality of Gorizia have organised ResiFestGO: Resilience Festival in Gorizia.

Stemming from the experience of the RESILOC project, a strong collaboration of various stakeholders was built throughout the territory of Friuli Venezia Giulia and the Isonzo area. This opportunity was activated by the work of ISIG, of the Municipality of Gorizia and of the Civil Protection Service of Gorizia.

The RESILOC project fostered the creation of the Local Resilience Team (LRT) of Gorizia, an informal group of local stakeholders that aims to improve resilience practices, awareness and preparation for the local risks. The work of the LRT of Gorizia focused on the topic of inclusivity of processes aimed at risk reduction at community level, as well as in “co-producing” objectives for a new resilience strategy for the community of Gorizia.

Awareness Campaign at Piazza della Vittoria

From 13 to 16 October 2022, Gorizia has been at the centre of a series of events within the Italian National Week of the Civil Protection. ResiFestGO aimed to provide emergency managers and citizens the opportunity to discuss on the topics of resilience and Civil Protection, from a cross-border and European perspective.

Simulation activities, seminars, round tables, serious gaming, and a “Citizens’ Jury” contributed to the definition of the strategic objectives for the Resilience Strategy of the Municipality of Gorizia also considering the persistence of the pandemic and the cross-border emergency linked to the forest fires of July 2022.

Citizens’ Jury

Though the different initiatives, ResiFestGO was able to encourage the participation of citizens and Local Authorities and was addressed to citizens, Civil Protection volunteers, high school and university students, Local Administrations, emergency operators and practitioners, local associations. The festival has seen the participation of local, regional, national and international stakeholders.

Technical Workshop “From emergency management to community resilience” at City Council Hall

The events were intensely followed by the local community, with more than 1.000 people who attended the events and over 2.000 people reached by communication activities.

ResiFestGO has clearly shown how local initiatives are a great opportunity to share information and knowledge on DRR and on Emergency plans within the community. Such initiatives fall among the good practices to raise awareness on local risks and to build a local resilience culture by developing a shared understanding of emergency planning and by promoting participation in the community.

Catania – Validation Workshops


The goal of the research activity is to collect and evaluate the results of the three workshops of phase one. This will be carried out through a questionnaire (Validation tool 1.1) that is organised in two parts (10 questions in total).

The first section evaluates the relevance/applicability of DIP (dimensions, indicators and  proxies) in the context of Catania.

The second section collects feedback on the role of scenarios as a tool for testing the validity of the DIP system and collects information on the clarity and understanding of the data gathering process. You are asked to receive and complete the questionnaire submitted by the Local Training Lead, returning it back by email before and no later than Monday 07/02/2022.

The RESILOC research team will use the answers you provide to further refine the development of the resilience tool that aims to improve the resilience of local communities.

RA1 - Overview Catania

Catania - Workshops on Dimensions, Indicators and Proxies


The workshop will be a mixed meeting, with both in-person and remote participants, and led by the Local Training Lead. The Local Training Lead will introduce the participants to the theoretical framework developed.

This activity will be performed via a PowerPoint presentation that aims to explain the scientific/research framework of RESILOC, introducing the DIP database and the logic behind it. During the presentation, the Local Training Lead will explore participants views, in particular on the approach of using dimensions, indicators and proxies to capture the resilience of a community; this will be done through dedicated Q&A sessions during specific moments of the workshop.

The purpose is to make the representatives of the Municipality and the LRT members able to evaluate the applicability of the framework in terms of relevance, feasibility, data availability, among others for the community of Catania.
