How will we live together – Venice Biennale Architecture 2021

António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations makes the following observation:-

“As humankind faces a devastating pandemic and a triple planetary crisis – climate change, biodiversity loss and severe degradation of air, land and water – we need to end our war on nature and begin to act more holistically to secure the health of the species, ecosystem and resources with which we coexist and on which our survival depends.”

Against this background I found it very interesting from a tourism and recreation perspective to attend Venice Biennale 2021 and learned of two new fascinating sustainable trails.

The European Green Belt – The creation of a continuous conservation strip along the former border between Western Europe and Eastern Europe. The Green Belt is designed to serve as a recreational space for humans while supporting cross border animal migration underpinned by the highest quality environmental and biodiversity planning.

The World Park is a proposal for the creation of three walking trails and three tracts of ecologically restored land from Alaska to Patagonia, from Australia to Morocco, and from Namibia to Turkey.

 

This will enable biodiversity to migrate so as to adjust to climate change and also provide meaningful work and recreational opportunities for people.

All in all I am excited about the future of our planet and how we can live together.
