Eine der am stärksten vom Klimawandel betroffenen Städte Europas ist die italienische Lagunenstadt Venedig. Mithilfe der Wettbewerbskriterien des „European eco-friendly Capital Awards“ (EGCA) untersucht Veronika Howe mögliche Schritte einer umweltgerechten Stadtentwicklung, bei der die größten Herausforderungen in Venedig, Massentourismus und Abwanderung aufs Festland, integriert werden könnten. Dabei spielt der conversation zwischen Stadtverwaltung, Bewohnern und örtlichen Unternehmen eine besondere Rolle, um Informationen über Umweltauswirkungen in der Stadtplanung obvious zu machen und die Grundlage für verbindliche Vereinbarungen zu schaffen. Zudem können einer bis dahin „ewig versinkenden Stadt“ neue Perspektiven aufgezeigt und mithilfe einer gesicherten Umweltentwicklung Potenziale für Wirtschaft und Gemeinschaftsleben entfaltet werden.
