In the next months, LIFE BEWARE will launch several new activities aimed at fostering citizens' active involvement in the improvement of hydraulic safety and resilience. A new Help Desk service for citizens will be activated in the Altovicentino area in order to provide information and support to the realization of Natural Water Retention Measures as rain gardens, rainwater harvestings, green roofs, infiltration trenches, pervious pavements, etc.
Furthermore, a series of roundtables with farmers and farmers' representatives will be organized to identify effective measures to mitigate hydraulic risk and the adoption of sustainable practices for water management in agricultural areas. Last but not least, a new edition of the School of Common Goods will be launched in Santorso and Marano Vicentino. The initiative will involve local citizens and national guests in conferences, workshops and practical laboratories to build up shared good practices revolving around the notion of common goods.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic affecting most of the countries around the world, the realization of these activities is suspended and rescheduled till further notice. In the meantime, the partners of the LIFE BEWARE project are keeping on working and doing their best to share knowledge about climate change adaptation and hydraulic risk prevention in line with their mission.
