Green Public General States: fifth edition

Rome, Bologna, Torino, Milan, Lecce, Venice and Napoli 20-22 November

In 2013 Italy adopted a law on the green in the city, n. 10/2013, entitled "Rules for the development of urban green spaces", to strongly promote  a renewed  green culture of spread of trees in urbanized contexts, where most Italians live and work. The law establishes, at the Italian Ministry of the Environment for the protection of the territory and the sea, the Committee for the development of green public that is technically supported of ISPRA.

In order to stimulate discussion and debate, but also active policies on the territory, on the occasion of the National Tree Day on November 21st, the General States of Green Public 2019 were launched - now in their fifth edition - organized in 6 half-days scheduled between Rome (20 afternoon), Bologna (20 afternoon), Turin (21 morning), Milan (21 afternoon), Lecce (21 and 22) and Venice (22 morning). Each event deals with an aspect linked to green infrastructures and urban forests and represents an opportunity of comparison between the technical and institutional world, to converge towards a greater integration of green areas in territorial urban planning and towards nature-based solutions for more resilient cities.

EMAS and Ecolabel UE in the service: circular economy tools

Rimini, 7 november

Environmental certifications are among the tools to promote the spread of new production and consumption habits and that drive the market towards more eco-sustainable choices, realizing many of the elements of the circular economy. The EU Ecolabel products and services they are characterized by a reduced environmental impact during the entire life cycle and favor the awareness and shared responsibility of the producer, also while guaranteeing high standar performance.EMAS organizations are aware of their environmental impacts and constantly act to increase the environmental efficiency of the production system and are ready for the technological innovation, transparent in communicating their environmental data and build an open dialogue with stakeholders.

Innovative Ecological Assessment and Water Management Strategy for the Protection of Ecosystem Services in Alpine Lakes and Rivers

A plastic picture. Wastes and plastics in the sea.

Roma, 9 october

The issue related to the presence of marine litter has emerged especially in the last decade. From the monitoring program carried out by Italy for the implementation of the Framework Directive on the Strategy for the Marine Environment (Directive 2008/56 / EC, so-called 'Marine Strategy') it is possible to derive a first picture on the quantity of marine waste present on the coasts, on the seabed and in the water column.

The conference will aim to highlight the important link between governance and scientific research to tackle the emerging problem of marine and especially plastic waste in our seas. The Marine Strategy Directive is an important tool that has promoted synergy between different stakeholders. The Ministry of the Environment, Land and Sea (MATTM) as the competent authority, the ISPRA as a reference technical institute and the Regional Agencies System (SNPA) are able to guarantee the implementation of the Directive throughout its adaptive process.

Rome, 2 October

The Department for the Geological Service of Italy - ISPRA, the Italian Geographic Society and SIGEA propose six first informative and scientific events concerning natural risks, historical research and the landscape geomorphological evolution. These study days are organized to analyze the current state of knowledge regarding the importance of historical and cartographic sources for the study of geological phenomena and natural catastrophic events.

Sea Forest LIFE first conference: "Protect Posidonia oceanica to combat climate change"
National report on soil consumption, territorial dynamics and ecosystem services - edition 2019Sep 21, 2019 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PMRome, Museo MAXXI, Sala Graziella Lonardi Buontempo, Via Guido Reni, 4A,

ISPRA will presents the new data on soil consumption in Italy and the 2019 edition of the Report of the National System for Environmental Protection. With a 180% increase in soil consumption from the 1950s to the present, the natural surface in Italy is reducing every year, increasing the negative effects on the territory, environment and the landscape. The contribution of the research, in addition to monitoring the trend of the phenomenon and the related environmental damage, is important for new planning perspectives and to provide tools and criteria useful for sustainable planning of urban areas.
