Event Description:
The ‘Festa della Biodiversitą’ (Biodiversity Days) was first celebrated in 2001 within the activities of the Association VAS (Green Environment and Society). Every year since then, a scientific session is held focusing on different aspects of biodiversity, with aim of conveying clearly the implications of the loss of biodiversity from many points of [view], including the ethic, aesthetic, intellectual, recreational perspectives and the survival of the human kind. The final goal of this initiative is to improve in the common people the perception of:
  • Biodiversity
  • its value in terms of environment, society, economics and ethics
  • its present extent
  • factors menacing its conservation
