Issue #20 on the go



 After a relatively long pause imposed by Covid19 breakdown, Plurimondi is now building up its 20th issue.

It will host a special section on the studies presented in the ‘Research Wednesdays Seminars’ (I mercoledi della ricerca) by scholars of the Department of Civil Engineering (DICATECh) at the Polytechnic University of Bari, in 2022. The initiative stemmed from the idea to keep due track of the multifaceted research interaction path taking place in the Polytechnic department, as evidence of the interesting structural evolution and updating of a research and didactical institution, particularly in Italy.

Contributions dealing with Research Wednesdays topics will be welcome, and particularly interested in (but not limited to):

  1. Climate Changes and Impact on Urban Environment (including strategies for mitigation and adaptation, modelling and planning for resilience)
  2. Complexity and Uncertainty issues in integrated environmental system (including disaster risk management, disaster risk reductions, urban and regional resilience, risk assessment)
  3. Sustainable management of natural resources (including water management, land use and land cover changes, resource efficiency, biodiversity, ecosystem services, nature- based solutions);
  4. Energy resources management (including energy efficiency, renewable energy sources, smart energy systems, smart buildings, smart grids, energy planning);
  5. Environmental dynamics and human influence (including environmental impact assessment, strategic environmental assessment, life cycle assessment, corporate social responsibility);
  6. Decision making, knowledge interaction & public participation in Environmental modelling (including social inclusion, territorial cooperation, planning for resilient communities, participatory planning processes, urban environment).
