Educational Workshop

Venice is a Fish: Lagoon Ecosystem and Sustainability


Admission fee
Free of charge

Booking is required at: education@ocean-space.org

The meeting, the second of a series of training workshops, is addressed at teachers of all levels.

The origins of the Venice lagoon date back to approximately 6,000 years ago. Its current state is the result of a combination of complex natural events and anthropic interventions, which have strongly impacted its development. Today, the lagoon has an articulated morphological structure, consisting of a dense network of canals.

This meeting, in collaboration with researchers from ISMAR-CNR, will focus on an in-depth study of the lagoon's ecosystem, fauna and sustainability, and a look at the tools and possible activities carried out by marine biologists.
