A vast and varied range of new methods of social actors active involvement, focused on shared patterns of consumption social and environmental well-being-oriented, and through which the crisis is seen and experienced as an opportunity for change, as a chance to recover from it and get different and better. The author focuses on the forms of civic engagement mediated by consumption practices that result in the local communities making, by disclosing, in the last part of the paper, the experience of a local energy community, still developing, aimed at activating a process of active involvement of the inhabitants in the care and management of energy consumption in the area, meant as common good.
