IETM Spring Plenary Meeting, Bergamo - Italy, 23 - 26 April 2015
Inspired by the perspectives for a better Tomorrow, designed in
Athens, and enriched by the energy of the Space for Change created in
Sofia, we invite you to discover the next phase – the phase of fostering a
profound change for a sustainable future through Regeneration.
Today, struggling to emerge from the crisis, we carry our luggage of unrealized projects and forgotten dreams. Instead of fixing the broken puzzle, we tend to start with a blank slate.Some centuries ago, the miracle of the Renaissance awakened the cultural energy in Italy, gave rebirth to the country’s prosperity and enriched all of Europe. In the late middleages, culture fulfilled its role of changing society for the better. And what about today?
Next spring IETM goes back to Italy to reflect on how to revive the resources that are already there, instead of abandoning and moving away from them. We will reflect together on the role of culture in reviving the forgotten potential, rebuilding decayed places and reconnecting disintegrated communities. Our meeting will discuss the urgent need to build a sustainable future through awakening the energy of the past.
IETM Bergamo is organised by Associazione Etre in collaboration with Ministry of Culture and Heritage, Lombardy Region, Municipality of Bergamo and Cariplo Bank Foundation and the project is under the patronage of the Committee of the Italian Regions and Bergamo's Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Discover Bergamo and ATB.
We have negotiated with our member hoteliers a number of rooms in advance, as IETM Meeting is starting a week before the opening of the Milano Expo 2015 and on the same day as the inauguration of the art gallery Accademia Carrara that had been closed for restoration works for five years.
As you can imagine, Expo will attract millions of people, and Bergamo is located only 50 km away from the scene. We suggest you to book your room by February 28, to have a wide choice of hotels and a significant discount (from 10% to 30%).
After this day prices will be raised!
Please note: you can probably find cheaper accommodation options on the Internet, but if they are not in the list below it means that they’re not “official” B&Bs and Hotels, just private rent rooms.
The page will be updated soon with the information about Bergamo professionals that will be able to host IETM participants.
To book your room, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Send your reservation requests ONLY to the email addresses / links provided by IETM in this list. In case you use other reservation channels, the discount mentioned in our list will not be applicable.
