Paradise Broken - Come rispondere alla minaccia dei crimini ambientali

26/02/2019, Rome, Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Environmental transnational crimes and, more generally, environmental injustice, represent a growing social, economic and political threat for the world. These range from illegal disposal of dangerous waste and illegal logging, to new kinds of environmental crimes, from those related to carbon trade to the management of water resources.

“Paradise Broken” will be an event aimed at stimulating the debate on the topic, discussing both the macro side of the issue, through an analysis of the Italian, European and global picture, as well as the micro perspective, i.e. how environmental crimes actually appear on the territory and how deeply they can endanger (if not destroy) the environment, the landscape and the affected communities.

Paradise Broken will thus consist in a high-level conference, also exhibiting the multimedia content produced on the field by Lorenzo Colantoni and Riccardo Venturi. The event will start with the projection of a video reportage on environmental crimes in Sardinia and Albania, and will be followed by the opening of a related photo exhibition. Participants will be Min. Plen Diego Brasioli, (Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation), Amb. Ferdinando Nelli Feroci (IAI), Amb. Alessandro Azzoni (Permanent Represation of Italy at OSCE), Eleonora Musco (UN Environment) and Riccardo Venturi (Akronos).

The photo exhibition and the video reportage have been previously exhibited during the round table organised by IAI as a collateral event for the 25th OSCE Ministerial Council, held in Milan on the 6th of December 2018.
