Project - Sustainable islands: Network of islands for the long-lasting development and preservation of heritage

Description


Description (EN): The small islands of the Maritime area are territories that have unique cultural and natural heritage, however they are also fragile territories in relation to the challenges posed by mainly seaside tourism. These island territories, with notable variations in population based on the season, face the shared issues of the degradation of their heritage, waste management or providing energy that is little suited to the environmental quality of the locations. The islands involved in the partnership – the island of Lérins (AM), the islands of Hyères (VAR), the islands of Lavezzi (CORSICA), the island of Capraia (TUSC), the island of Tavolara and Asinara (SARD), and the island of Palmaria (LIG) – wish to commit themselves to this integrated strategic territorial project to preserve their heritage and develop a “sustainable island” approach together. The approach will be based on the initial international initiative of Small Sustainable Islands; making the Maritime cooperation area the perfect trial zone for this new brand. The ISOS project – Isole Sostenibili (Sustainable Islands) therefore intends to: • create a network of French and Italian islands committed to the preservation of island cultural and natural heritage which will be animated with technical workshops, conferences, mobilisation of experts, a schedule or a set of initiatives. • implement, with local operators, tangible pilot actions for: - improved management of natural resources with innovative solutions suited to the small islands (renewable energy, sorted waste collection, etc.) and the enhancement of island heritage. The dissemination of this network on a Maritime scale and the investments envisaged will lead to the certification of “sustainable islands” for the islands in the project, having co-built sustainable strategies for the protection of natural and cultural heritage to the benefit of the population.
Description: Le piccole isole della zona del Marittimo sono territori che dispongono di patrimoni culturali e naturali unici, tuttavia sono anche territori fragili rispetto alle sfide imposte da un turismo principalmente di tipo balneare. Questi territori insulari, con notevoli variazioni di popolazione in base alle stagioni, conoscono problematiche comuni di degrado del loro patrimonio, di gestione dei rifiuti o di fornitura di energia poco adatte alla qualità ambientale dei luoghi. Le isole facenti parte della partnership – isola di Lérins (AM), isole di Hyères (VAR), isole Lavezzi (CORSICA), isola di Capraia (TOSC), isola di Tavolara e dell’Asinara (SARD), isola di Palmaria (LIG) – desiderano impegnarsi in questo progetto strategico integrato territoriale per preservare i loro patrimoni e sviluppare congiuntamente un approccio di “isola sostenibile”. Esse si baseranno sull’Iniziativa internazionale incipiente delle Piccole Isole Sostenibili; facendo dello spazio di cooperazione Marittimo la zona sperimentale perfetta per questo nuovo marchio. Il progetto ISOS – Isole Sostenibili intende dunque: • creare una rete di isole francesi e italiane impegnate nella preservazione dei patrimoni naturali e culturali insulari che sarà animata con workshop tecnici, conferenze, mobilitazione di esperti, un calendario oppure un insieme di iniziative. • mettere in atto, con gli operatori locali, delle azioni pilota concrete per: - una migliore gestione delle risorse naturali con soluzioni innovative adatte alle piccole isole (energia rinnovabile, raccolta differenziata dei rifiuti, ecc. - e la valorizzazione dei patrimoni insulari. La diffusione di questa rete su scala Marittimo; e gli investimenti previsti porteranno alla certificazione di “isole sostenibili” delle isole del progetto, avendo co-costruito strategie sostenibili per la protezione dei patrimoni naturali e culturali a beneficio delle popolazioni
Description: Les petites îles de la zone Marittimo sont des territoires singuliers, qui disposent de patrimoines culturels et naturels uniques, pourtant ce sont également des territoires fragiles, confrontés aux enjeux de la fréquentation touristique principalement tournée vers un usage balnéaire. Ces territoires isolés, avec de fortes variations de population selon la saison, connaissent des problématiques communes de dégradation de leur patrimoine, de gestion des déchets ou d''approvisionnement en énergie peu adaptés à la qualité environnementale des lieux. Les gestionnaires des îles du partenariat - île de Lérins (AM), îles d’Hyères (VAR), îles Lavezzi (CORSE), île de Capraia (TOSC), île de Tavolara et de l''Asinara (SARD), île de Palmaria (LIG) - souhaitent s''engager dans ce projet stratégique intégré territorial pour préserver leurs patrimoines, et développer une approche conjointe “île durable”. Elles s''appuyeront sur l’Initiative internationale naissante des « Petites Iles Durables », faisant de l''espace de coopération Marittimo la zone test parfaite de ce nouveau label. Le projet ISOS – Isole Sostenibili entend donc : • créer un réseau d’îles françaises et italiennes engagées dans la préservation des patrimoines naturels et culturels insulaires, qui sera animé via des ateliers techniques, des conférences, la mobilisation d''experts, une banque d''initiatives. • mettre en place, avec les acteurs locaux, des actions pilotes concrètes pour : - une meilleure gestion des ressources naturelles avec des solutions innovantes adaptées à l''échelle des petites îles (énergie renouvelable, tri des déchets etc.) - la valorisation des patrimoines insulaires. Le déploiement de ce réseau à l''échelle « Marittimo » et les investissements prévus permettront d''aboutir à la certification « Iles durables » des îles du projet, tout en ayant co-construit des stratégies durables de protection des patrimoines naturels et culturels, au bénéfice des populations locales.
