About the Event
The discussion starts from the presentation of a research report submitted in fulfilment of the requirements for the Arqus Spring School “Rethinking climate risk: the Venice paradigm” compiled by students: Francesca Furlan, MA in European and American Languages and Cultures; Thi Ngoc Anh Nguyen, MA in Human Rights and Multi-level Governance; Giulia Rosina, MA in Human Rights and Multi-level Governance; Miriam La Matina, MA in Engineering.
The discussion is centred upon steps students can take to become environmental activists in their local communities and how schools, institutions and civil society organizations are providing young people with knowledge and inputs on local and global climate risks.
