Atlas of Hope

Atlas of Hope Conference

29 June 2023

Join us in Venice for the Atlas of Hope Conference, focused on sharing research and projects from different regions that take climate action and aim to promote a better future. The conference offers a platform for sharing knowledge between invited academics, practitioners and students from all over the world to collaborate on developing narratives of hope through devising possible actions and solutions.

As part of the Climate Wunderkammer exhibition, the Atlas of Hope Conference aims to provide an opportunity to share experiences, research and built environment solutions from diverse international contexts. The conference will highlight the divergent local impacts caused by the climate change crisis, but also the similarities between these different regions. As conference outcome we plan to draw a new atlas of impacts, stories and solutions and set the agenda for future climate change research.

Speakers from different regions are invited to report on in-depth local research regarding the impacts of climate change and possible solutions developed for specific regions. 

It is planned as a hybrid event, therefore please join us in person or online.
