Water Seminar


20   September


From 9 am to 4 pm


Sala di Porta S. Agostino - Bergamo Alta

Water, environment and landscape: ethics or profit?

The conference was conceived by Uniacque for I Maestri del Paesaggio for an in-depth study on the theme of water taken as an element of planning in urban and extra-urban contexts.
During the seminar, water will be looked at as an opportunity for development – beyond the logic of profit – that concretizes the philosophy of sustainability by integrating economic choices as well as social and environmental choices made for ethical reasons. Water will be considered as a key element around which – and according to which – the environment and infrastructure are designed, revolutionizing the physiognomy of the territory.
