27 world-leading scientists, executives, academics and politicians have called on nations to adopt the Global Apollo Program (GAP) by the time of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

A letter published today, signed by Carlo Carraro (ICCG Director), Sabina Ratti (FEEM Executive Director), David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Paul Polman, Nilesh Jadhav and other respected figures argues that ‘A sensible approach to tackling climate change will not only pay for itself but provide economic benefits to the nations of the world”.

The GAP plan for internationally coordinated RD&D (research, development and demonstration) into renewable energy technology was proposed in June by a group of top scientists, economists and energy experts including Nicholas Stern, Gus O’Donnell, Richard Layard, David King, Martin Rees, Adair Turner and John Browne.

The aspiration of the Program is to make renewable energy cheaper than fossil fuels by increasing government spending on research to at least $15bn a year globally for the next 10 years. Watch this video to learn more about GAP.

The letter comes at the same time as a video from Sir David Attenborough urges support for the Program. You can watch the video here.

27 world-leading scientists, executives, academics and politicians have called on nations to adopt the Global Apollo Program (GAP) by the time of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

A letter published today, signed by Carlo Carraro (ICCG Director), Sabina Ratti (FEEM Executive Director), David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Paul Polman, Nilesh Jadhav and other respected figures argues that ‘A sensible approach to tackling climate change will not only pay for itself but provide economic benefits to the nations of the world”.

The GAP plan for internationally coordinated RD&D (research, development and demonstration) into renewable energy technology was proposed in June by a group of top scientists, economists and energy experts including Nicholas Stern, Gus O’Donnell, Richard Layard, David King, Martin Rees, Adair Turner and John Browne.

The aspiration of the Program is to make renewable energy cheaper than fossil fuels by increasing government spending on research to at least $15bn a year globally for the next 10 years. Watch this video to learn more about GAP.

The letter comes at the same time as a video from Sir David Attenborough urges support for the Program. You can watch the video here.

Genius loci, l'anima di un luogo


: Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei

Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei

Matera si interroga su sviluppo e identità

Quali forme di sviluppo permettono a un territorio un benessere economico senza perdere la propria identità? Quale ruolo svolgono i cittadini nel coltivare l'anima del proprio luogo?

Matera, 01 giugno 2017 – FEEM, Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei organizza, martedì 6 giugno alle ore 15, presso Casa Cava a Matera, la conferenza Genius loci, l'anima di un luogo. Organizzata con il patrocinio della Regione Basilicata e in collaborazione con l'Università degli Studi della Basilicata, Federculture, Fondazione Matera 2019 e Symbola, l'incontro dà voce a ricerche e riflessioni sui significati e i valori elaborati dalle comunità e conferiti ai luoghi d'appartenenza e sull'importanza della salvaguardia dell'identità di un territorio. È rilevante parlarne a Matera, una città che si appresta a vivere la sfida della proclamazione a Capitale Europea della Cultura 2019 dopo avere già vissuto la rilevante esperienza di rigenerazione urbana con la riqualificazione del rione Sassi, oggi location contesa da registi e videomaker di tutto il mondo.

27 world-leading scientists, executives, academics and politicians have called on nations to adopt the Global Apollo Program (GAP) by the time of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

A letter published today, signed by Carlo Carraro (ICCG Director), Sabina Ratti (FEEM Executive Director), David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Paul Polman, Nilesh Jadhav and other respected figures argues that ‘A sensible approach to tackling climate change will not only pay for itself but provide economic benefits to the nations of the world”.

The GAP plan for internationally coordinated RD&D (research, development and demonstration) into renewable energy technology was proposed in June by a group of top scientists, economists and energy experts including Nicholas Stern, Gus O’Donnell, Richard Layard, David King, Martin Rees, Adair Turner and John Browne.

The aspiration of the Program is to make renewable energy cheaper than fossil fuels by increasing government spending on research to at least $15bn a year globally for the next 10 years. Watch this video to learn more about GAP.

The letter comes at the same time as a video from Sir David Attenborough urges support for the Program. You can watch the video here.

27 world-leading scientists, executives, academics and politicians have called on nations to adopt the Global Apollo Program (GAP) by the time of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

A letter published today, signed by Carlo Carraro (ICCG Director), Sabina Ratti (FEEM Executive Director), David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Paul Polman, Nilesh Jadhav and other respected figures argues that ‘A sensible approach to tackling climate change will not only pay for itself but provide economic benefits to the nations of the world”.

The GAP plan for internationally coordinated RD&D (research, development and demonstration) into renewable energy technology was proposed in June by a group of top scientists, economists and energy experts including Nicholas Stern, Gus O’Donnell, Richard Layard, David King, Martin Rees, Adair Turner and John Browne.

The aspiration of the Program is to make renewable energy cheaper than fossil fuels by increasing government spending on research to at least $15bn a year globally for the next 10 years. Watch this video to learn more about GAP.

The letter comes at the same time as a video from Sir David Attenborough urges support for the Program. You can watch the video here.

27 world-leading scientists, executives, academics and politicians have called on nations to adopt the Global Apollo Program (GAP) by the time of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

A letter published today, signed by Carlo Carraro (ICCG Director), Sabina Ratti (FEEM Executive Director), David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Paul Polman, Nilesh Jadhav and other respected figures argues that ‘A sensible approach to tackling climate change will not only pay for itself but provide economic benefits to the nations of the world”.

The GAP plan for internationally coordinated RD&D (research, development and demonstration) into renewable energy technology was proposed in June by a group of top scientists, economists and energy experts including Nicholas Stern, Gus O’Donnell, Richard Layard, David King, Martin Rees, Adair Turner and John Browne.

The aspiration of the Program is to make renewable energy cheaper than fossil fuels by increasing government spending on research to at least $15bn a year globally for the next 10 years. Watch this video to learn more about GAP.

The letter comes at the same time as a video from Sir David Attenborough urges support for the Program. You can watch the video here.

27 world-leading scientists, executives, academics and politicians have called on nations to adopt the Global Apollo Program (GAP) by the time of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

A letter published today, signed by Carlo Carraro (ICCG Director), Sabina Ratti (FEEM Executive Director), David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Paul Polman, Nilesh Jadhav and other respected figures argues that ‘A sensible approach to tackling climate change will not only pay for itself but provide economic benefits to the nations of the world”.

The GAP plan for internationally coordinated RD&D (research, development and demonstration) into renewable energy technology was proposed in June by a group of top scientists, economists and energy experts including Nicholas Stern, Gus O’Donnell, Richard Layard, David King, Martin Rees, Adair Turner and John Browne.

The aspiration of the Program is to make renewable energy cheaper than fossil fuels by increasing government spending on research to at least $15bn a year globally for the next 10 years. Watch this video to learn more about GAP.

The letter comes at the same time as a video from Sir David Attenborough urges support for the Program. You can watch the video here.

27 world-leading scientists, executives, academics and politicians have called on nations to adopt the Global Apollo Program (GAP) by the time of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

A letter published today, signed by Carlo Carraro (ICCG Director), Sabina Ratti (FEEM Executive Director), David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Paul Polman, Nilesh Jadhav and other respected figures argues that ‘A sensible approach to tackling climate change will not only pay for itself but provide economic benefits to the nations of the world”.

The GAP plan for internationally coordinated RD&D (research, development and demonstration) into renewable energy technology was proposed in June by a group of top scientists, economists and energy experts including Nicholas Stern, Gus O’Donnell, Richard Layard, David King, Martin Rees, Adair Turner and John Browne.

The aspiration of the Program is to make renewable energy cheaper than fossil fuels by increasing government spending on research to at least $15bn a year globally for the next 10 years. Watch this video to learn more about GAP.

The letter comes at the same time as a video from Sir David Attenborough urges support for the Program. You can watch the video here.

27 world-leading scientists, executives, academics and politicians have called on nations to adopt the Global Apollo Program (GAP) by the time of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

A letter published today, signed by Carlo Carraro (ICCG Director), Sabina Ratti (FEEM Executive Director), David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Paul Polman, Nilesh Jadhav and other respected figures argues that ‘A sensible approach to tackling climate change will not only pay for itself but provide economic benefits to the nations of the world”.

The GAP plan for internationally coordinated RD&D (research, development and demonstration) into renewable energy technology was proposed in June by a group of top scientists, economists and energy experts including Nicholas Stern, Gus O’Donnell, Richard Layard, David King, Martin Rees, Adair Turner and John Browne.

The aspiration of the Program is to make renewable energy cheaper than fossil fuels by increasing government spending on research to at least $15bn a year globally for the next 10 years. Watch this video to learn more about GAP.

The letter comes at the same time as a video from Sir David Attenborough urges support for the Program. You can watch the video here.

27 world-leading scientists, executives, academics and politicians have called on nations to adopt the Global Apollo Program (GAP) by the time of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

A letter published today, signed by Carlo Carraro (ICCG Director), Sabina Ratti (FEEM Executive Director), David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Paul Polman, Nilesh Jadhav and other respected figures argues that ‘A sensible approach to tackling climate change will not only pay for itself but provide economic benefits to the nations of the world”.

The GAP plan for internationally coordinated RD&D (research, development and demonstration) into renewable energy technology was proposed in June by a group of top scientists, economists and energy experts including Nicholas Stern, Gus O’Donnell, Richard Layard, David King, Martin Rees, Adair Turner and John Browne.

The aspiration of the Program is to make renewable energy cheaper than fossil fuels by increasing government spending on research to at least $15bn a year globally for the next 10 years. Watch this video to learn more about GAP.

The letter comes at the same time as a video from Sir David Attenborough urges support for the Program. You can watch the video here.

27 world-leading scientists, executives, academics and politicians have called on nations to adopt the Global Apollo Program (GAP) by the time of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

A letter published today, signed by Carlo Carraro (ICCG Director), Sabina Ratti (FEEM Executive Director), David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Paul Polman, Nilesh Jadhav and other respected figures argues that ‘A sensible approach to tackling climate change will not only pay for itself but provide economic benefits to the nations of the world”.

The GAP plan for internationally coordinated RD&D (research, development and demonstration) into renewable energy technology was proposed in June by a group of top scientists, economists and energy experts including Nicholas Stern, Gus O’Donnell, Richard Layard, David King, Martin Rees, Adair Turner and John Browne.

The aspiration of the Program is to make renewable energy cheaper than fossil fuels by increasing government spending on research to at least $15bn a year globally for the next 10 years. Watch this video to learn more about GAP.

The letter comes at the same time as a video from Sir David Attenborough urges support for the Program. You can watch the video here.

Genius loci, l'anima di un luogo


: Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei

Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei

Matera si interroga su sviluppo e identità

Quali forme di sviluppo permettono a un territorio un benessere economico senza perdere la propria identità? Quale ruolo svolgono i cittadini nel coltivare l'anima del proprio luogo?

Matera, 01 giugno 2017 – FEEM, Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei organizza, martedì 6 giugno alle ore 15, presso Casa Cava a Matera, la conferenza Genius loci, l'anima di un luogo. Organizzata con il patrocinio della Regione Basilicata e in collaborazione con l'Università degli Studi della Basilicata, Federculture, Fondazione Matera 2019 e Symbola, l'incontro dà voce a ricerche e riflessioni sui significati e i valori elaborati dalle comunità e conferiti ai luoghi d'appartenenza e sull'importanza della salvaguardia dell'identità di un territorio. È rilevante parlarne a Matera, una città che si appresta a vivere la sfida della proclamazione a Capitale Europea della Cultura 2019 dopo avere già vissuto la rilevante esperienza di rigenerazione urbana con la riqualificazione del rione Sassi, oggi location contesa da registi e videomaker di tutto il mondo.

27 world-leading scientists, executives, academics and politicians have called on nations to adopt the Global Apollo Program (GAP) by the time of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

A letter published today, signed by Carlo Carraro (ICCG Director), Sabina Ratti (FEEM Executive Director), David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Paul Polman, Nilesh Jadhav and other respected figures argues that ‘A sensible approach to tackling climate change will not only pay for itself but provide economic benefits to the nations of the world”.

The GAP plan for internationally coordinated RD&D (research, development and demonstration) into renewable energy technology was proposed in June by a group of top scientists, economists and energy experts including Nicholas Stern, Gus O’Donnell, Richard Layard, David King, Martin Rees, Adair Turner and John Browne.

The aspiration of the Program is to make renewable energy cheaper than fossil fuels by increasing government spending on research to at least $15bn a year globally for the next 10 years. Watch this video to learn more about GAP.

The letter comes at the same time as a video from Sir David Attenborough urges support for the Program. You can watch the video here.

27 world-leading scientists, executives, academics and politicians have called on nations to adopt the Global Apollo Program (GAP) by the time of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

A letter published today, signed by Carlo Carraro (ICCG Director), Sabina Ratti (FEEM Executive Director), David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Paul Polman, Nilesh Jadhav and other respected figures argues that ‘A sensible approach to tackling climate change will not only pay for itself but provide economic benefits to the nations of the world”.

The GAP plan for internationally coordinated RD&D (research, development and demonstration) into renewable energy technology was proposed in June by a group of top scientists, economists and energy experts including Nicholas Stern, Gus O’Donnell, Richard Layard, David King, Martin Rees, Adair Turner and John Browne.

The aspiration of the Program is to make renewable energy cheaper than fossil fuels by increasing government spending on research to at least $15bn a year globally for the next 10 years. Watch this video to learn more about GAP.

The letter comes at the same time as a video from Sir David Attenborough urges support for the Program. You can watch the video here.

The aspiration of the Program is to make renewable energy cheaper than fossil fuels by increasing government spending on research to at least $15bn a year globally for the next 10 years. Watch this video to learn more about GAP.

The letter comes at the same time as a video from Sir David Attenborough urges support for the Program. You can watch the video here.

27 world-leading scientists, executives, academics and politicians have called on nations to adopt the Global Apollo Program (GAP) by the time of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.

A letter published today, signed by Carlo Carraro (ICCG Director), Sabina Ratti (FEEM Executive Director), David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Paul Polman, Nilesh Jadhav and other respected figures argues that ‘A sensible approach to tackling climate change will not only pay for itself but provide economic benefits to the nations of the world”.

The GAP plan for internationally coordinated RD&D (research, development and demonstration) into renewable energy technology was proposed in June by a group of top scientists, economists and energy experts including Nicholas Stern, Gus O’Donnell, Richard Layard, David King, Martin Rees, Adair Turner and John Browne.
