Tuesday 28 September 2021 h. 09:30-12:30


On September 28th Milan will host the Cop26 initiative “Youth4Climate: driving ambition”. On the same 28th in Shanghai we planned to host the “Climate for youth” online/offline seminar. After the dramatic discontinuity generated by Covid-19, a new paradigm for development becomes more and more urgent. The sustainability of all our activities must become the engine for a change. Acting in depth, for shifting from "explotation" to "cooperation" with natural systems. The pandemic has shown how much our individual behaviors, daily rhythms can change, how flexible we must be, and how adaptable to new situations. The seminar will embrace an holistic, interdisciplinary vision on climate issues.


  • New climate: how is energy affecting it?
  • New mobility: how can behaviour make a change?
  • New food habits in a circular economy: how will awareness drive consumption?
  • New economy: how will climate change impact it?

Eight speakers will elaborate on the complexity of these global challenges, in a modality of moderated “duets” on each topic. A round table will follow, with eight students, as representatives of the new generation, discussing the relevant issues of the previous speakers.
