The full video of the second of the ‘Biodiversity Walks‘, a programme of Parco Italia – a proposal by Stefano Boeri Architetti and AlberItalia oriented to the realisation and connection of ecological corridors in Italy – for the promotion of local territories and their biodiversity, held at the “Bosco della Mesola” State Natural Reserve and the Po Delta Park, has been released.
The “Biodiversity Walks” are a programme by Parco Italia aimed at promoting local territories and their biodiversity. The walks aim to disseminate the Parco Italia project and raise public awareness about the importance of managing and protecting the existing natural heritage in a sustainable and caring way, minimising risks such as landscape fragmentation and hydrogeological risks, while increasing ecological and cultural connectivity. These dialogues cover various topics related to the unique features and challenges of different landscapes and territories encountered along the walks, as well as major subjects of interest related to climate change, cities, forests and biodiversity.
Characterized by various coastal natural settings, including ancient dunes with woodlands, marshes, and clearings, the “Bosco della Mesola” State Natural Reserve and the Po Delta Park represent one of the best-preserved wetland areas with remnants of plain forests along the Adriatic coast. These areas are marked by the presence of numerous water bodies, thus creating ideal habitats for flora and fauna. Serena Giacomin and Giorgio Vacchiano identify, in this journey, the risks and opportunities associated with the presence of water in territories more susceptible to climate extremes.
Serena Giacomin – Physicist specialized in Atmospheric Physics, a recognized climatologist, and a professional meteorologist accredited by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). She is also the President of the Italian Climate Network.
Giorgio Vacchiano – Associate professor in Forest Management and Planning at the University of Milan. He is involved in developing simulation models to support sustainable forest management, as well as mitigation and adaptation to climate change.
