6-7 pm Key note (open section) – Main conference room – Marine Protected Areas
Goldman Prize Winner Howard Wood spearheaded a campaign that established the first community- developed Marine Protected Area in Scotland, giving citizens a voice in a debate that has been dominated by the commercial fishing industry. Wood and his friend used their own personal savings and in 1995, co-founded the Community of Arran Seabed Trust (COAST), a citizen group of volunteer activists committed to protecting the local marine environment. Wood set out to champion sustainable management of marine resources for the benefit of all. In doing so, he faced an uphill fight against a deeply entrenched history of poor marine management. With his colleagues at COAST, Wood launched a grassroots campaign to establish Scotland’s first No Take Zone (NTZ) in Lamlash Bay, an area they had identified as key habitat for regenerating marine wildlife. After 12 long years dotted by numerous setbacks and progress, meetings with public officials, local fishermen and scientists, community rallies, and petitions to the Scottish parliament, Wood celebrated the establishment of the NTZ in 2008.

5-6 pm Art Conference (open section) Art and Science
Presentation of the European Project Sciart Summer School (Art and Science) and the European travelling exhibition Resonance Festival
Speakers: Freddy Paul Grunert
Summer School as a way of showcasing a novel, experimental way of coming together. Neither a (scientific) conference nor an (academic) symposium, the event is a meeting-of-minds in which ideas and concepts from art, science, humanities, policymaking and society are able to cross-pollinate. The Summer School targets artists who can stand back from their practice to reflect openly on their method, and to scientists / philosophers/humanist scientist/ critics who can reach beyond their own work and beyond the boundaries of plants, ateliers, laboratories. Both need to be able to embrace a position either of innovation or of decided trans-disciplinary, taking also in account deterministic and non-deterministic actions. The result of the Summer School is the 2019 edition “Resonance III” focusing on big data and the challenges of generation, storing, sharing, analyzing, using, misusing, hacking, etc, large data sets of all kinds. The tackle big Festival aims to tackle big data from the angle of identity: What does big data to our sense of self and consciousness? How does big data change our relationship with humans and technology, with society and nature? Will big data extend and enrich us, or will the data tsunami sweep up away?

DINNER on invitation
9 NOVEMBER 2019 – VILLA NOBEL SANREMO (all the conferences will be in Italian)
10-11 am educational (addressed to Middle Class Students)
Plant for the Planet
It all started with a school presentation and today Plant-for-the-Planet is a global movement with an ambitious goal: to fight the climate crisis by planting trees around the world. The children’s initiative Plant-for-the-Planet is initiated by 9-year-old Felix Finkbeiner. Inspired by Wangari Maathai, who planted 30 million trees in Africa in 30 years, Felix formulated his vision: Children could plant one million trees in every country on earth and thereby offset CO2 emissions all on their own, while adults are still talking about doing it. Each tree binds a CO2 intake of 10 kg per year. After just 3 years, the children plant the one-millionth tree in Germany. In November 2011, UNEP, the United Nations Environment Program, hands over the Billion Tree Campaign to the children of Plant-for-the-Planet. They now bear the responsibility for the World Tree Counter and have the official mandate to motivate all people to plant trees.
