The Shylock Association of Theatrical University Center of Venice announces the Seventh Edition of the International Communication and Creativity Competition “Climate Change – The Grand Challenge” .

The initiative aims to enhance the works and projects that propose an effective message on the topic of climate change and on the environmental and social aspects connected to it.

The competition underlines the urgency of the adaptation and mitigation actions dictated by the international scientific community and by the United Nations with the World Conference of Paris in 2015, by the Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 ° C – SR15 of 2018, by the consequent global appeals and from the evidence of natural phenomena detected at a global level.

Final event

On 29 November 2019 a public meeting will be held in Venice, for the presentation of the selected works, with the participation of Luca Mercalli , president of the Italian Meteorological Society and with known representatives of the cultural world, selected for their attention to the environmental theme.

The competition is sponsored by:
