NanoValbruna

NanoValbruna is the NanoGreen Festival of Friuli Venezia Giulia promoted by ReGeneration Hub
Friuli which takes place in Valbruna, the small community that from the 18th to the 23th of July will
host scientists, entrepreneurs, teachers, professionals and especially young people, to talk about
sustainability, ecosystem protection and innovative solutions to support the Green Economy.

The goal is to contribute to a global regeneration process, based on knowledge and scientific
research, giving a voice to the younger generation and promoting with them, at all levels, interest
and attention for a sustainable development.

NanoValbruna Challenge for Circular Economy
New in this 2022 edition is the “NanoValbruna Challenge for Circular Economy” contest, aimed at
researchers, scientists and aspiring entrepreneurs, called upon to present sustainable ideas for the
launch of innovative startups.
Connected to the contest, workshops will be held, reserved for the authors of the selected projects
and also open to young people interested in understanding how an idea for a sustainable future is
transformed into an effective working plan.
The contest will close with presentations of the selected projects and an award will be given to the
most innovative startup chosen by a prestigious interdisciplinary jury.

NanoPiçule
As with past editions, there will be NanoPiçule workshops, dedicated to children and teens from 6 to 14
years old and designed to teach “sustainable thinking”. Scientific experiments will make it possible to
discover how clean energy is obtained from the sun and water, how solar and photovoltaic panels work and
how the instruments for measuring energy are used so that Pelton, Kaplan and Francis turbines will have no
more secrets.

Panel and Meeting With
An appointment particularly appreciated by young people is “Meeting with” during which they will
be able to meet NanoVabruna’s guests in an informal setting and collect useful suggestions to face a
truly complex future and to implement coherent professional and personal decisions.

Green Experience
The program also includes daily proposals for sustainable tourism, the Green Experience, organized
to promote this corner of the earth, of extraordinary naturalistic beauty and incredible historical
value.

Final evening
The festival closes with the final evening, where the scientists will open a debate with young
people and guests of the Festival on the complexity of the future that awaits us and on the need to
give interconnected answers to the sustainability challenge.
To close, NanoValbruna will say goodbye to everyone with a “bio snack” prepared by the Festival
volunteers.

We look forward to seeing you in Valbruna!
