ArtePollino2022 – We can’t change the wind, but we can try

On 14 May, students from the “ISIS Sinisgalli” in Senise will meet Alessia Sacchetti of the CESVI Foundation and Rino Lombardi of the BORA MUSEUM in Trieste, to talk about future climate and good practices. The title – WE CAN’T CHANGE THE WIND, BUT WE CAN TRY” – refers to one of the projects created within the framework of the European call for action 1Planet4All by the CESVI Foundation, in Italy: “CambiaVenti -The climate emergency and us”, an awareness-raising initiative by the Bora Museum. In the afternoon, at 5.30 pm, at the MULA+ Museum and Library of Latronico, the meeting will be open to the public.

CESVI Foundation 
Cesvi is an independent, secular Italian humanitarian organisation founded in Bergamo in 1985. In 2019, it gave assistance to one million people in more than 20 countries around the world, dealing with the fight against hunger, sustainable development, and environment protection in fragile countries. In Italy and Europe, Cesvi promotes awareness-raising campaigns to encourage international solidarity, especially among the youngest.
Cesvi is a partner of “1Planet4All: Empowering youth, living EU values, tackling climate change”, a three-year EU co-funded program for raising young people’s awareness in 12 European countries on climate change and how our choices can have a deep impact in developing countries. Within the 1Planet4All project, many activities are aimed at involving young people and teachers in and out of school. Through the 1Planet4All project, Cesvi aims to support young people in the fight against climate change, by providing information and tools to help them become real “game changers”  in making their communities more sustainable, inclusive, and climate-smart. Young people are given the opportunity to make their voice heard by taking part in communication campaigns, calls to action, events and debates, with the possibility of exchanging experiences and good practices, being inspired by experts and activists on climate change and youth engagement.

Bora Museum
The Bora Museum of Trieste, opened in 2004, it’s more than a museum. It’s a hybrid and interdisciplinary venue, across science, art, culture and society. It hosts the Archive of World Winds, a bizarre collection of over 130 ‘canned winds’ sent from all over the world by ‘wind ambassadors’. This little wind gallery boasts quality works by talented artists, relevant to the museum’s themes. It also houses the archive of Silvio Polli, photographs, scientific publications, newspapers, the scientific tools of one of the greatest experts on the bora wind, made available by the family, as well as curiosities on the Bora wind, original and artificial finds. It is also a wind documentation centre, with over 400 titles including books, videos, CDs and DVDs.
With the CambiaVenti project, the Bora Museum aims to raise awareness among young people on climate emergency and environmental sustainability, through training activities which originally involved experts on climate and environmental issues, activists and good practice makers. This inspired young people’s creativity, who contributed with visual works and texts, later collected in a book
