UIA Expert Christian Iaione gives an update on the progress of 6 Co-City's pacts of collaborations and analyses how they played a role in enabling co-governance through the Turin Regulation on the urban commons to build multi-lateral, mono-stakeholder for the shared government of spaces and buildings. Being the pacts only at their early stage, it is difficult to measure the real impact they had on the local context, but the analysis presents some preliminary results that shows how Co-City supported processes of capacity building for urban communities and policy capacity building for the City, which are likely to produce an institutional change in the different policy domains of city governance that the urban commons affect. Moreover, the experimentation of shared government through the pacts of collaboration allowed Turin to learn how to engage in an innovative, collaborative form of dialogue and interaction with urban communities, while at the same time, enhancing the governance and economic capacity of local social actors, balancing the tension between sustainability and public value of the urban commons.
