The first workshop on the topic of Energy and Environmental Transition, known as TEA, was held today at Palazzo Grandi Stazioni in Venice. The meeting, entitled “Environmental Protection and Circular Economy,” was organized by the Venice Sustainability Foundation (VSF) on what was described as the most populated thematic area within the Foundation. Throughout the afternoon, discussions focused on presenting ideas and projects that the Foundation itself will accompany and accelerate, coordinating the various founding and co-founding members.
The TEA thematic area was divided into three sub-worksites to facilitate the framing of the work: circular economy and environmental protection, energy efficiency and renewable energy, and sustainable mobility and infrastructure. Public entities, private organizations, and academic institutions engaged in discussions on these topics to identify technically and administratively feasible pathways, emphasizing the central role of the Foundation as a facilitator among the various stakeholders in creating an integrated model of sustainability for the Venetian territory.
During today’s workshop on July 5th, insights, projects, and ideas from various members were discussed, and participants began to generate hypotheses based on their experiences, aiming to converge their views on environmental protection and circular economy.
