(ANSA) - UDINE, 17 SET - Plastics, the SalvaMare law, blue economy, and the approach of Generation Z, ambassadors of a "native" environmental sensitivity, port logistics, the challenges of the Hydrogen Valley, and actions put in place by companies to support the environment and protect it. These are the key themes of the Barcolana Sea Summit, scheduled October 5-7 in Trieste as part of Barcolana54, presented by Generali.

The event, promoted by the Sailing Society of Barcola and Grignano (SVBG), is co-organized with the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region in anticipation of the General States of Sustainability of Northern Adriatic and Central Europe.

The summit's aim, presented today, is to address the issue of complex sustainability and the need for an integrated approach capable of handling it. On the occasion, the promoters explained, a workshop of technicians, scientists, politicians, communicators, companies, young people, and citizens "ready to team up to protect the Adriatic together" will be held.

"Every citizen is called upon to do his or her part," SVBG President Mitja Gialuz noted, "but this must be part of an overall science-driven strategy. A new strong alliance between public and private sectors is needed." "The spirit of the Barcolana, the sharing of the same sea by boats of many categories, and the respect for the sea are among the principles that led us to share our environmental policies with Slovenia, Croatia, Carinthia, Veneto and Emilia Romagna Regions," said FVG Regional Councillor for Environmental Defense Fabio Scoccimarro. "To achieve the goals of the European green deal at least five years ahead of 2050 - he added - we need to collaborate with the entire Upper Adriatic and Central European area." Among the speakers are Umberto Galimberti, Piergiorgio Odifreddi, Enrico Galliano, and technicians from OSMER, ARPA, OGS, and the University of Trieste. The event will also focus on the NAMIRS project, developed with CEI, aiming to plan a cross-border response against marine pollution in the northern Adriatic Sea in case of accidents at sea and on land.
