NanoValbruna & NanoPiçule

NanoValbruna is the NanoGreen Festival of Friuli Venezia Giulia promoted by the Accademia di Gagliato Globale and Valbruna, the small community that from the 19th to the 24th of July will host scientists coming from all over the world to talk about nanotechnologies at the service of the environment and innovative solutions to support the Green Economy.

This second edition was born in the middle of the health emergency with the intent to contribute for a global recovery. It is necessary today more than ever to base this recovery on knowledge, scientific research and sustainability with the urgency of entrusting the younger generations with the role of true engine of change.

Therefore, the plans of the Festival are diverse and articulated:

there will be scientific panels – directed and coordinated by Prof. Giulia Grancini with the collaboration of Paola Del Zotto Ferrari (president and founder of Accademia di Gagliato Globale) – in which international leaders of the sector will participate, but also a round table that will have as qualified protagonists local experts in the sector, entrepreneurs of the Green Economy and representatives of regional and local institutions.

A central role is also played by the two days of activities dedicated to school-age children (NanoPiçule), where scientific experiments will be carried out, led by highly experienced teachers and young researchers.

Certainly meaningful will be the meeting and discussion between the young generation and the guests of the Festival (Meeting with), organized with the aim of inspiring and impassioning girls and boys to frontier science. It is designed to confirm the decisive role that the younger generations must have in the realization of the Green Economy and the Sustainable Development Goals.

 

Furthermore, the ProLoco of Malborghetto Valbruna, in collaboration with the organizers of NanoValbruna, will realize “NanoValbruna Green Experience“, a sustainable tourism program for the guests of the event, to promote this unspoiled oasis of extraordinary beauty and incredible historical value.

Hence, NanoValbruna is a Festival with an international scope, but it is also capable of creating the necessary connections for an integrated promotion of the territory and decisive collaborations for the goal to be achieved:

to become an annual appointment for a high-level scientific meeting and for a sustainable regeneration of the territory.

 

We look forward to seeing you in Valbruna!

In Friuli a Nanogreen festival dedicated to connections: Paksy’s return to Valbruna

After the success of the first edition and the program of the upcoming one, it is clear that NanoValbruna is a NanoGreen Festival which becomes a precious moment of exchange and knowledge transfer. Last year it hosted paramount personalities in Val Saisera. One of them who had an impact…
