VIU has invited these associations to debate how and why they campaign for a more sustainable approach to environmental challenges in Venice.     

The Lecture is part of a series of meetings and visits that address various aspects of the city of Venice. These meetings focus on Venice as a place that is susceptible to the environmental crisis and where critical knowledge and environmental policies are elaborated, and also as a place of dispute and activism. 
This Lecture in particular treats three current case studies of environmental activism representing volunteerism, a think-tank, and protest. All three have an international point of view. 
Each group will describe how their organization was founded, its characteristics, actions, references, and prospects for the future.  

In collaboration with:

climate camp

Venice Climate Camp is a European climate camp that fights for climate justice and against mega projects, an opportunity for debate and assemblies, but also for fun.  


We are Here Venice is a non-profit association that addresses Venice’s challenges as a living city and advocates evidence-based approaches to policy making.
