Inside the Innovation Manor

What can civil society do for heritage? Basically there is no limit. In this episode we speak to Natalia Gnoińska, president of Fundacja 8Marca, who has initiated a concept of the Innovation Manor in Rokietnica, south-east Poland.

The Innovation Manor addresses the problem of undeveloped architectural heritage sites located in rural areas, seeking new functions for them and creating a development plan based on economically, socially and ecologically sustainable solutions. It is based on New European Bauhaus ideas and refers to the EU Green Deal and climate neutrality by 2050.

Natalia elaborates on this idea referring to the founding project of the organisation – the Innovation Manor in Rokietnica.

Rokietnica is a village with a population slightly exceeding 4,000 inhabitants, located in south-east Poland, picturesquely situated among the rolling hills of Podkarpacie, not far from Rzeszów and Lviv in Ukraine.
