Youth creators narrate about the Cohesion Policy in their mountains

Youth creators from the Lombardy Region, Italy, have produced three videos to tell examples of how the Cohesion Policy impacted their mountains. Creativity, freshness and storytelling are few ingredients of their catchy videos.

A laboratory for youth

In the Lombardy Region, the Montana174 project initiated the experimental laboratory “Storytelling for the EU” targeted to local youngsters aged between 14 and 23.

Selected youth have worked closely with local experts – from facilitators, video makers and storytellers- during the summer. Over this period, they have learnt how to channel their creativity to tell stories of mountain people who received the funds of the Cohesion Policy in their region.

What are these stories about?

Through their short movies, youth selected and narrated about three stories that they perceive as extremely valuable and impactful for the mountains in their regions.

  • Orrido di Bellano: youth mountaineering group of the Alpine Club of Bergamo talked about this is a great tourist destination on Lake Como. Here, the spectacular paths overlooking the Pioverna stream have been restored thanks to Cohesion Policy funding;
  • Paluaccio di Oga natural reserve: youngsters from the Alpine Club of Brignano Gera d’Adda illustrated the peculiarities of the Paluaccio di Oga reserve, a wetland of exceptional naturalistic value in the upper Valtellina where the typical alpine flora of peat bogs is found, with the presence of all carnivorous species of the Alps.
  • Arcumeggia: youth from Bresso talked about this tiny village situtated in the Varese province. This village is known for its “Bicc”, a type of cheese protected because of its immaterial value within the Alpfoodway project (financed by the Interreg Alpine Space programme of the Cohesion Policy).

What are the take-aways?

As acknowledged by Daniela Masotti, the person in charge of managing the laboratory from the Ente Regionale per i Servizi all’Agricoltura e alle Foreste (ERSAF), most youngsters did not know about the Cohesion Policy. Thus, the laboratory has firstly been an interactive and “fun” way for these youngsters to discover their territory and appreciate the initiatives done to valorise its assets.
