1st Circular

Ecosystem restoration is a hot topic in the scientific community and the urgency of a long-term and sustained recovery of biodiverse and resilient nature is increasingly recognised politically, with the European Nature Restoration Law being the first continent-wide law on ecosystem restoration. Venice has long been recognised as the stage of the world and, for its long history of resilience and integration with the natural environment, has been appointed the Sustainability Capital of the World. We are therefore delighted to invite you to the 57th International Congress of the Italian Society of Vegetation Science, where Venice will once again become the world’s stage on which ecosystem restoration will be the theme of the play.
