The city of Getxo is known for its sports program. It was “European Capital City of Sports” in 2014 and won a prize for “ACES Europe Certification: Best Sports City” in 2015. Getxo also has an Urban Development Plan – Plan Estrategia Getxo 2020. The reason for this project is the renovation of the sports center, but the ambition goes further: with this project Getxo wants to bridge the gap between the sports program and the Estrategia Getxo 2020 program. The concrete goals of this project are therefore:
- Renovate and integrate with the environment the sports complex.
- Beyond sports, provide a good and healthy life.
- Use the Fadura Sport Park as a living lab where new technologies stimulate the sporting experience and quality of life in the city.
For this objective the users and residents of Getxo had to be fully involved, supporting the project and agreeing in the view for the future of the city. Involving a broad variety of users and stakeholders, bringing them together for a deep understanding of needs and opportunities, and tackling the issues in a collaborative manner was the key to a successful and sustainable revitalization project. Through digital and face-to-face participation we stimulated stakeholders, created a living passion for sports and innovative activities and, at the end, built the city around the power of a community.
