2020 will be a particular year for the Communities of our Planet: then the revision of the relationship between Economy, Society and Environment will be completed and the construction of the balance between these will go ahead.
Thus, the challenge of this decade is imagining, discussing, definig and testing various models that are capable of integrating the requirements of Economic, Social and Environmental Sustainability, hence delivering to the next decade a roadmap for the Communities of the Planet which they can follow to build a harmonious, smart, sustainable and inclusive future.
Venice is a living example of this Search for a new balance, the works for the protection of the lagoon, for the industrial conversion, for the pollution remediation, for the preservation of historical city and for the design of a sustainable urban model are symbolizing the challenges thisdecade has to master.
Therefore Venice takes an active role in this transition towards sustainability; being a bridge between Europe and the East, the co-location of EXPO 2015 for the topic of "water", Venice contributes concepts of sustainability to the next decade that will become the heritage of humanity.
ARMONICO will to be the Venice Forum on Harmonious Development between the needs of Economic, Social and Environmental Sustainability; it is the space that Venice dedicates to the debate on ideas, patterns, practices and solutions for the development of a harmonious and sustainable future.
This Forum is proposed by ANSAC (the Italian National Association for Environmental Monitoring and Assessment), with the aim to aggregate Italian and international stakeholders, from the world of NGOs, CSOs, Public Administrations, Universities , Research centers and Enterprises, which, each for their part, actively wish to participate in designing and building a roadmap for the future.
