On march 27th 2007, the Regional council of Tuscany discussed and approved a preliminary document on the drawing up of a law on participation, in accordance with international charters and documents (Eec Directive 2003/35, Charter of Aalborg, Declaration of Rio, Agenda Habitat II, Declarations of Johannesburg and Aarhus, etc.) that highlight the need to encourage, promote and diffuse processes and institutes for involving inhabitants in the creation of the political and technical choices for a territory, so as to ensure their democratic nature and sustainability. The article describes this process, that is currently central in political discussion.
