Rinio Bruttomesso, founder and former President of RETE, and Roberto Converti, current Vice-President of RETE, will participate in the 5th Cycle of “Healthy Cities 2030”, specially dedicated to Water Cities, where experiences from 9 cities in Europe and Latin America will be shared on 24 and 26 August.
This cycle of events, under the patronage of UN-HABITAT, is part of the City and Communication programme of the Fundación Ciudades 2030 Ciudades en Movimiento Cities 2030 (Foundation Healthy Cities 2030-Cities in Movement) , aimed at promoting public, private and citizen dialogue on various urban, economic, social, environmental and cultural issues that impact the development of cities and citizenship with a view to 2030. To this end, Healthy Cities 2030 has developed its central theme, from reflection and analysis to the generation of actions, commitments and alliances to be shared and implemented in the design of urban and citizen policies and actions that the Foundation will promote, together with the collaborative and cooperation networks that are thus generated.
The webinar is meant to debate the new strategic role of water for cities and local communities in relation to the crucial challenges of our present and future, firstly that of climate change and environmental transformations. At the same time, speakers will discuss how water can be a source of opportunities for sustainable development, innovation, culture and, above all, for people’s health and well-being. In particular, Rinio Bruttomesso will present the experiences of Venice and Zaragoza, with a proposal that renews the new strategic role of water for sustainable development and the permanent need to communicate its value. Roberto Converti will share the experience of Santa Fe, presenting the plan for the reconversion of the waterfront.
