The Diploma Programme 1 visits the Center for Climate Governance

The DP1 class is exploring the conservation of natural and historic heritage, including the State Archives and International Center for Climate Governance, in Venice.

Founded in 2009 by the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei and the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, the ICCG is an internationally recognized research center that conducts research on topics related to climate change and related government policies, and is a meeting point for economists, researchers, politicians and leaders of the private sector.

On Wednesday, April 5th, H-International School’s DP1 class has visited the ICCG headquarters and met the researchers and staff who conduct studies, experiencing what it means to work in a “research center on climate.” The students have been accompanied by Ms. Scapolan, professor of Environmental Systems and Societies, and Ms Gietz, Theory of Knowledge teacher. This visit represents an important part of this year’s educational program: this year, the main theme of the interdisciplinary project of natural sciences and humanities is, in fact, the preservation of natural and historical heritage.

Following the visit, the students have also visited the State Archives of Venice for a guided tour of the collections, view several documents concerning international relations of the Republic of Venice and explore some of the hisotrical document digitization projects..
