The Green Night in Venice
Green economy and sustainable development
The City of Venice participates in the event Green Night in the NorthEast, that involves several cities and districts of the metropolitan area of Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige and Friuli Venezia Giulia, on Saturday May 5th 2012.
From late afternoon and into the night, many cities will simultaneously go green when city squares, industrial plants and cultural venues will illuminate with green lights: 200,000 people are expected to give rise to the largest European event of this kind.
Debates and workshops, project presentations and products, artistic performances and exhibitions, tastings of organic products or km 0, will enliven Venice and the other cities in the Northeast, exploring the best sustainable experiences: clean technology and alternative energy, mobility and waste management, green architecture and design, smart city, agriculture, formation. Shops and cultural venues will be open throughout the night
