The Life Beware Project was promoted with full marks by the European supervisors who examined the remarkable results achieved. During the monitoring visit, which took place on April 27th, the experts from Brussels have reviewed the series of Natural Water Retention Measures (NWRM) carried out in Santorso and Marano Vicentino.
As part of the Nature of Cities Festival, a 3-day virtual event (29th – 31st of March 2022) that pushes the boundaries of radically imagining our cities for the future, the LIFE Beware project joined on the 30th of March by holding the workshop “Nature Based Solutions for a more resilient territory – How can Municipalities better implement them?”.

The great theme investigated by the author is climate change, which is presented through photography and that has already been able to attract many people and move the thoughts of visitors.
The images express the power of nature and its adverse events and the links that bind them to man, who is both the cause and the victim. However, the shots also show the attempts that have been carried out to solve the serious problem of the impact of climate change.
The festival focused on the need to collectively develop effective resilience strategies to the increasingly devastating consequences of the epochal climate change that the world is witnessing, with the involvement of local communities, using a variety of methods and forms of expression.

The LIFE BEWARE Project has become a case study of the Master Program “Governance of local development networks” at the University of Padua, intended to form the experts of territorial growth processes who, starting this year, should come in close contact with the most innovative responses geared to prevent the hydro-geologic risks and increase the resilience of the territory, such as the interventions implemented in Santorso, Marano Vicentino and Giavenale of Schio.
Is dealing with water in agriculture as easy as drinking a glass of water? Unfortunately, it is not! For this reason, Veneto Agricoltura, LIFE BEWARE project, the Department of Land, Environment, Agriculture and Forestry (TESAF) of Padua University and the Brenta Land Reclamation Consortium organized a series of meeting with the Italian Agricultural Associations to open a dialogue and focus on the subject.
On Friday 29th of May, it took place the first edition of the “Kids University BEWARE” which involved young students and teachers from the primary and secondary schools of Santorso and Marano Vicentino who had the opportunity to join an innovative online campus on water, environment and climate change.
The main objective of the LIFE project “BEWARE” is to implement a strategy for adaptation to climate change and flood risk in urban and rural areas, through the active involvement of local communities.
