Some University of Padua’s students who recently attended the Arqus “Rethinking Climate Change: The Venice Paradigm” Spring School, have organized the online event “Unify Venice” on 7th July, from 11-13.

This online networking initiative is a solution-based event that works to address two major issues experienced by Venice and its Lagoon: the over-tourism crisis, which perpetuates and is a large contributor to, the environmental crisis.

Unify Venice is a space where civil society organisations, researchers, stakeholders, local populations and experts in the field can share their knowledge and concerns, as well as space for attendees to learn, and engage in a call to action, all in an attempt to unify Venice.

This initiative follows the experience of three Unipd students, Isabella Pacchiano, Isotta de Zandonati and Eleonora Bergamin, who recently attended the Arqus “Rethinking Climate Change: The Venice Paradigm” Spring School. Their “Community Engagement Framework Project” works to connect local civil society organisations, experts, researchers, stakeholders and populations; and involve such individuals in conversation pertaining to the over-tourism crisis in Venice, which perpetuates the environmental crisis faced by Venice and its Lagoon.

Within the Annex of their research, they included the results of the framework project which offered a voice to the concerns and potential solutions organisations and individuals shared. A major concern and common theme among interviewees is the over-tourism crisis and the subsequent deterioration of the Venice Lagoon.

The event will be held in English on Zoom. Connect to this link on the date of the event: https://unipd.zoom.us/j/81868255061.
