WahV is an independent non-profit organisation dedicated to the conservation of Venice as a living city. Founded in 2015, it operates both as a think tank and activist platform, reinforcing connections between the best available sources of information, stakeholders, and the local community.
Venice, with its specificity, its history and its cultural intricacies, represents a unique context for exploring and acting on innovative policies of resilience. Our initiatives range from specific projects, such as research and internships, to awareness-raising campaigns providing information to the public.
We collaborate with universities, businesses, cultural institutions and public authorities to create projects and propositions which are based on rigorous research and bring concrete economic, physical and ecological change, measurable by social indicators.
