Vesuvio Rangers

The "Vesuvius" is not only a famous volcano located in southern Italy but is an icon and symbol for Naples and the whole surrounding area. A very attractive area from a tourist and scientific point of view, which hosts nearly two million inhabitants in different cities around its foothills. Infact, just under the Vesuvious in the surrounding area we have some of the most important archeological areas in the world such as:

  • Pompei; 
  • Ercolano;
  • Boscoreale;
  • Oplonti
Business, agricultural and tourism activities testify that the Vulcano is alive from a social, cultural and economic point of view. This year, however, the Vesuvius was struck by devastating fires that destroyed an important part of its vegetation. In the past recent years, the disposal of rubbish around the Vesuvious's area has been destabilising its integrity. 
The Climathon project for Naples is to find solutions to protect the territory and defend the Vesuvius. Which technological tools should be given to the authorities in order to allow them to have better control over the territory? How to involve the citizens in defending this historical and environmental heritage?
Already several public and private organisations have decided to support this challenge: 
  • Campania Region www.regione.campania.it;
  • UCID  ucid.it/sezionenapoli;
  • COELMO spa www.coelmo.it;
  • Gruppo Iovine srl www.gruppoiovine.it;
  • Liceo Scientifico;Classico, Linguistico A. M. De Liguori of Acerra www.liceodeliguori.it. 
To The event starts at 12 o'clock on 26 October with a presentation of the day, full of important and important interventions at the University of Suor Orsola Benincasa. All participants will be divided into groups, working on the idea and on a brief presentation until the next day. At 18 o'clock the university closes, but participants can continue working on their own, which will resume in the Pagliara Library of the University of Studs Suor Orsola Benincasa on 8 am October 27.

At 10.30 there will be a plenary presentation of the ideas developed by the tables and the evaluation by the jury of experts that will award the best presentation. The event ends at 11.30 am with the statement of the winning idea.

Climathon Napoli will also have a YOUTH version. It will start on the morning of October 26th from 8am to 11am at the AM de Liguori (Acerra) high school, where a pre-race will take place between the participating students with a series of written and oral presentations on the themes of the challenge. The winning group of each school will participate on 27 October at university with adults, bringing together the academic and research world, local government and local government institutions in the forefront to promote sustainability and climate challenges.

 Overcome this challenge we need the support of technicians, entrepreneurs, researchers, students, and citizens who live the Vesuvius!  Why don't you help us too!
