Talk: Hier & Da Festival (IT)

On 13 April 2019, Bianca contributed with a keynote to the regional development festival Hier & Da in the Vinschgau Valley in South Tyrol (IT). The festival is dedicated to exploring in theory, but especially in practice what is needed for a good life in rural areas in the Alps.

This year, the festival also saw the participation of scientists and environmental activist Vandana Shiva (who celebrated the valley’s successful resistance to pesticides and apple plantations) and Heini Staudiger (Austrian social entrepreneur and shoe maker), as well as numerous initiatives working for a more ecologically sound way of life in the Alps and beyond.
