On Sunday 11 September, Fabiano Ventura will be among the guests at the second edition of “Dialoghi per l’ambiente”, the initiative promoted by the Riccardo Catella Foundation and conceived by BAM – Biblioteca degli Alberi Milano with the Corriere della Sera Foundation to reflect on the relationship between Man, the Ecosystem and the Environment.
After the great success of the first edition in 2021, with more than 1 million views, this year site-specific activities will be introduced: workshops for children to stimulate the attention of even the youngest and the active involvement of youth associations and university students in the creation of a constructive path of debate and confrontation to accompany the talks for the wider public.
Fabiano will be the protagonist of two events on Sunday 11 September, where the main theme of the day will be extreme environments. Below is the programme:
- 10 am | BAM Workshop KIDS: On the trail of the glaciers. A playful-educational workshop for children aged 7 and up, to discover the importance of mountain ecosystems through an encounter with the photographer Fabiano Ventura: an imaginative journey among the glaciers that will take shape thanks to the photographs that Ventura will project and the dialogue with Martina Recchiuti, editor-in-chief of Internazionale Kids. Fabiano will tell the children about his incredible work, which combines photographic comparison and scientific research in order to make the effects of climate change tangible and raise awareness of the need to safeguard natural resources.
- 11 a.m. | BAM Talk: “WHITE – polar zones and mountains: the urgency of extreme environments” A moment of debate and discussion between Fabiano Ventura – President of the Macromicro Association and naturalist photographer, Carlo Barbante – Director of the Institute of Polar Sciences of the CNR, Professor at Ca’ Foscari University in Venice, and Chiara Montanari – Expedition Chief in Antarctica. The meeting is moderated by Massimo Sideri.
All “Dialogues for the Environment” events are live in the park and streamed on www.bam.milano.it and www.corriere.it.
