The University of Mondragon, Tecnalia research center and the municipality of Ermua organized and coordinated a participatory workshop that brought together relevant and varied local agents, municipal staff and technicians of the drOp project itself. This workshop was held on Tuesday 4th July, at Izarra Centre in Ermua and brought together about twenty-five interlocutors for three hours.
This workshop is part of the process of defining the strategic plan to project the regeneration of the Santa Ana neighborhood. During the event, a brainstorming session was held to reflect about the neighborhood and to gather the opinions of the groups on their vision for the future. These projections included a general and sectorial vision of different areas of work (social-cultural, economic, digital and physical/environmental), in order to define possible future scenarios for the district. The participants discussed resistance to change, population loss and aging, accessibility to buildings, parking, energy rehabilitation, improvement of public space and its accessibility, proximity to services and the city center, and solar power, among other issues.
