We are here Venice researcher Margherita Scapin presented the WaterLANDS project at the Frontiers in Ecology Congress (IntEcol22) in Geneva (CH) at the end of August 2022.
Margherita presented the poster “The Venice Lagoon as an action site for wetland restoration upscaling”.
Speaking about the event, Margherita said:
“I was able to explain the WaterLANDS project characterizing the six action sites and 12 knowledge sites. More specifically, I presented the historical conditions that brought the Venice lagoon ecological functioning under threat, and why the EC-funded project is an immense opportunity to firstly research and design, and then demonstrate the potential for nature-based solutions to optimize the lagoon’s nature contribution to people and society at large.”
Camilla Bertolini, WahV’s chief scientist, presented the same poster at Estuarine & Coastal Sciences Association (ECSA) Conference in San Sebastian (ES) at the beginning of September.
The 2022 edition titled ‘Using the best scientific knowledge for the sustainable management of estuaries and coastal seas’. A very fitting theme where to present WaterLANDS project and objectives while introducing the Venice Lagoon as an Action Site.
