Energia per la vita

Verso Expo 2015: paesaggio, alimentazione e cultura

S. Gusmè (Castelnuovo Berardenga, Siena), Italy
Teatro della Soc. Filarmonica di S. Gusmé
Quest’anno in onore all’EXPO di Milano previsto a maggio del 2015, il convegno “Energia per la Vita” sarà dedicato agli stessi temi dell’iniziativa fieristica.
Il convegno affronta come ogni anno il tema dello sviluppo economico e dell’ammodernamento dei territori pregiati, sfruttando la convergenza di politiche agricole, energetiche e industriali mirate alla valorizzazione dell’ambiente.
L’intreccio tra lo sviluppo delle energie rinnovabili, le politiche volte al risparmio energetico e alla riduzione delle emissioni climalteranti, ci impegnano a costruire in armonia con la natura e per questo necessitano di un continuo confronto.
In questa cornice si confronteranno esperienze locali e nazionali offrendo un utile e interessante spaccato, non solo per gli addetti ai lavori, ma soprattutto per chi ha a cuore le tradizioni, il territorio e il buon vivere.
