COLLANA: Campus Conference Proceedings — 50
Edited by Alessandro Leto
Coherently to its Mission, Water Academy SRD promoted in 2017 two important Symposiums on the theme of Water, with the aim to contribute to the diffusion and root of a new Culture of Water. Eminent personalities from Science, national and international Institutions, Researchers and Diplomats participated at the High Level Round Table of Geneva and Lugano, focusing their work on “Water as a Common Good” and on “Water as a Geopolitical Factor”. In the occasion of the Geneva’s HLRT it was launched the “Geneva Water Initiative”. The present publication contains the Acts of both the Symposiums and represents a concrete contribution to the cause of the centrality of water in our contemporary era, almost under all point view: from Economy to Geography, from Biology to Chemistry, from Engineering to Religion. The strong determination of Water
Academy SRD, is to inaugurate a new methodology in approaching Water related issues considering this theme under a holistic point view, sewing together different scientific knowledges into a comprehensive and inclusive Discourse Around Water.
