AGENSO partner at HYDROUSA, Horizon 2020 project, participated on the co-creation workshop at the Cultural Foundation of Tinos which was organized by Impact Hub Athens.
More than 45 stakeholders participated, including farmers, agronomists, entrepreneurs, local government representatives, builders, artists and educators. The workshop was carried out using the World Café methodology, which encouraged the participants to discuss about the main issues related with water management that the island faces.
The attendees were divided in 5 groups with 5-6 people participating in each. The conversations were driven by 4 main questions:
- How do they envision Tinos as a model for sustainable development?
- Which “good practices” are already identified in the island?
- What is missing from Tinos?
- Which is the role of every person based on their expertise in fostering sustainability practices and a circular economy?
Based on these questions each group chose one category between energy, water, food and employment in which explored viable scenarios around this category, while taking into account the environmental, social and economic impacts and the particular characteristics of the site.
AGENSO team created and distributed questionnaires in order to record the needs of the participants related with the Information and Communication Technologies and the parameters that must be measured for monitoring and controlling the reclaimed water in Tinos island. All the participants answered the questions helping to better implement the systems of demo sites HYDRO 5 – Agios Fokas and HYDRO 6 – Steni.
