Gioia Gibelli, Luca Imberti, Sergio Malcevschi, Manifesto per il Po, Ludovica Ramella, AdbPo

The conference is dedicated to a discussion about the prospects of an articulated and complex planning for the territories of the Po to bring the environmental, social and economic value of the great river to the center of attention. The priority objectives respond to the need to protect natural resources, provide adequate tools to correctly address the governance of the territory from the point of view of the use of territorial resources, enhance local peculiarities, support virtuous initiatives, improve the dissemination of knowledge on the Po river and involve future generations in the growth of the places where they live.
A strategic approach that emerges from the territories and communities of the Po and is in alignment with European and national plans to cope with the changes taking place both globally and locally.
