LIFE REDUNE Tour - Seven days of Communication & Networking

An end-of-summer "Tour" is about to start, full of appointments with a varied public to discover the dunes of the northern Adriatic Sea and ending with a stop in Spain to compare experiences and practices for the integrity of dune ecosystems in Andalusia.

In the framework of the Communication and Networking activities, the Life REDUNE project will be involved in four important events aimed at a very heterogeneous audience.


Friday 27 September, contribution to the round table "From balconies to urban parks: designing greenery to conserve biodiversity" organized by ISPRA and University of Cagliari, partners in the Life ASAP project, within Flormart 2019.

Dedicated to nurserymen and landscape architects, the event will deepen the most correct gardening and landscaping practices to limit the spread of invasive alien species. In this context, Professor Gabriella Buffa, coordinator of the Life REDUNE project, will present environmental recovery activities on coastal dunes..


Saturday 28 September, speech at TEDx in Mestre-The Awakening.

Entire areas of cities remain dormant, i.e. they "do not react" architecturally, socially, economically or environmentally to the stimuli arriving from the world around them. Dedicated to those who want to develop strategies for action to awaken these parts of the city, the event will bring examples so that interventions become seeds for new virtuous development. In this sense Professor Gabriella Buffa, coordinator of the Life REDUNE project, will testify to her experience of involving the various stakeholders in the protection and conservation of dune areas..


On Sunday 29 September guided nature walk for adults and children to discover theintegrated nature reserve of Bosco Nordio (Sant'Anna di Chioggia -VE).

As part of the "Falling in love with a few dunes" events Cà Foscari University, in collaboration with the Aqua cooperative and Veneto Agricoltura, is organising a naturalistic visit to discover and take to heart the environment of the dunes that host the Reserve. Young people will also be involved in a treasure hunt game that will stimulate their naturalistic curiosity.


From 1 to 4 October, a meeting between the delegations of the Life REDUNE and Life CONHABIT ANDALUSIA projects..

The ultimate aim of the network of connections that the Life REDUNE project is weaving with other Life projects with which it shares themes, objectives or activities is the restoration and conservation of priority habitats present in the coastal dune areas of the Natura 2000 network and the promotion of social awareness of the need to protect these spaces and ecosystems.

The partners of LIFE REDUNE will meet the team of LIFE CONHABIT ANDALUSIA, for four days of intensive collaboration between the two Life projects which will include the exchange of information and best practices and the building of relationships and synergies to make the best use of the tools developed within each project in order to improve territorial regeneration interventions, increase the awareness of different stakeholders and increase the visibility of the project, its contents and its activities.
