The IED has organised this international Conference in the City of Venice, which offered the most eloquent context for examining environmental issues: humanity is confronted with the impact of Climate Change, and Venice is an icon of a community, a History, a cultural Heritage of worldwide interest to be protected and brought to life. Mitigation and adaptation, the strategic objectives of the international climate community, can be measured in Venice where they represent concrete challenges.

Monday 30 August, 16:00-18:00
Conference in English was broadcasted on the IED Website

The discussion was moderated by Francesco Rutelli, President of IED
