E2 - Optimizing the ways to use and economic valuation of the water


1 day (7 full working hours)


A local or regional area is like a water mine in that it is extremely useful, not only for the guests, but also for the community around the Albergo diffuso. 

For this reason correct use of the resources both in mountain, hill or seaside areas is essential. 

The question we ask is:

• How to obtain great savings on the management costs and create opportunities for companies in the communities where the Albergo diffuso is located?


In the introductive seminar covering this issue the following topics will be covered:
• awareness of the economic and occupational value of the resources at their disposition;
• transferring useful technical know-how in order to find fast efficient alternatives (use of hydro-electric power, drinking water, thermal hydro-mineral, fire safety/industrial, irrigation);
• safeguard and improve the characteristics of the existing water supply as a special element of the environment.
