While the world is on lockdown and travelers are confined to their houses, our planet is breathing. Given that the world is calmer, now is the right moment to understand what the global changes are. There are new technologies that help us to investigate rising sea levels, melting ice, and all the consequences related to the emission of greenhouse gasses. The iconic city of Venice facing its difficulties against the high water is only the tip of the drifting iceberg.

This conversation takes the form of a virtual trip around the world to the most significant places involved in climatic issues and is led by an environmental scientist. Alaska, North Carolina, Indonesia, Australia, and Louisiana are only a few destinations of this virtual trip that will help us to better understand what to do and how to act to save our planet.

The webinar is designed for addictive travelers. In this peculiar moment when we are physically locked into our houses, we can virtually fly with our minds using new scientific tools. The aim of the discussion is to update your travel wish list and create connections between locations that seem so far from each other.

He is a Ph.D. student working for the National Research Council of Italy, Institute of Marine Science, on the effects of ship wakes on the morphology of the Venice Lagoon.
