The beginning of the 21st century, characterized not only by Covid 19 but also by exasperated tensions and factionalisms, bringing dialogue back to the center of political, economic and cultural choices is one of the priorities of GeoAdriatico.
The international symposium is by vocation a non-partisan opportunity to address current issues and turn the spotlight on the present with a look at the future of the Planet.

People, Planet and Prosperity
People, Planet and Prosperity are the three pillars that inform the work program of Italy which, the last 1st of December, assumed the presidency of the G20, the international forum of leaders, finance ministers and central bank governors which includes the most industrialized countries as well as the European Union.
UN 2030 Agenda
People, Planet, Prosperity.
The 17 goals for sustainable development.
Work, digitalization, food safety, renewable energy, but, above all, environmental protection.
Revitalize economies to promote smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
At the centre of the debate there are also wars and migrations, as well as other issues of an European Union that is manifesting evident decline and, in many ways, seems unable to react to the new challenges of globalization.
GeoAdriatico is, therefore, a laboratory that facilitates the international community, with its problems aggravated by the coronavirus pandemic, to develop a common dialogue between all social components.
For the VIGeS is an incubator for dialogue between diplomats, scientists, academics, but also young researchers and university students, girls and boys who at GeoAdriatico have the opportunity to demonstrate quality and ability. Also in this sense, GeoAdriatico places dialogue at the centre, this time intergenerational, with the aim of providing young people with the opportunity to gain experience and mature.

Climate Change is the defining issue of our time and we are at a defining moment. From shifting weather patterns that threaten food production, to rising sea levels that increase the risk of catastrophic flooding, the impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale.
Without drastic action today, adapting to these impacts in the future will be more difficult and costly.
