The success of the implementation of policies linked to a new model of relationship with our vital and natural habitat depends on the coordination to achieve the goals set, but also on the social reception they have. They understand that, therefore, the monitoring of these public policies must also include a sociological aspect, which is necessary when designing and defining public policies. Thus, in recent years it has been observed that the concern for climate change, for sustainable cities, for a healthier rural and urban habitat and ecological sensitivity have become hegemonic, and how negationism is taking root in the society; and how some recent experiences of implementing emission reduction policies (France, the Netherlands) related to the right to the city show us, however, that this hegemony is very fragile and that social perception can be adverse. to the implementation of specific policies. Therefore, knowing and monitoring the social reception of the measures to be applied is necessary for any institution that wants to advance in these policies and make them last over time, and that it is necessary to study how the design of public policies which involve a change, not only in the economic model, but in the way of life, is done in a participatory way, where citizens have a voice and also decision-making power in the design, application and evaluation of these.
Specifically, it is up to the UJI, through the Chair of New Green Transition, to carry out the following activities:
1. To carry out, in the first place, an activity of study and analysis, from the sociological point of view, of the public opinion in relation to the public policies on the rights to the city and the rights of the nature, thus as the influence of the citizenry in the design of these, in the terms indicated above.
2. Facilitate, in addition, diverse activities, such as seminars, days, conferences, contests, exhibitions, studies, workshops, courses; training and university extension activities; as well as other cultural activities that are agreed related to the theme of the Chair and the Second Vice-Presidency and the Department of Housing and Bioclimatic Architecture.
3. Carry out outreach work throughout the Valencian territory and through the information technology of the activities of the Chair and the specific topics related to the work of the Chair and the Second Vice-Presidency and the Department of Housing and Bioclimatic Architecture, as well such as the publication of those writings that may be of interest to both.
4. And also all the different actions that are agreed to be carried out within the program of activities to be developed approved annually by the Joint Commission.
