Giancarlo Gusmaroli

"Slowness is not a waste of time, but the right pause to build new languages, new forms of respect, new alliances".

Slowing down the succession of moments is already a revolution in a ravenous age of incessant change. Giancarlo Gusmaroli, 44, does not make it a shallow manifesto, but applies it daily in research, in the contemplative adventure by sea and land.

Environmental engineer, since 2003 he has been a national consultant in the field of integrated management of water resources, requalification of aquatic ecosystems, environmental governance, climate change. For 15 years he worked at the Italian Center for River Redevelopment, taking part to numerous international projects for the protection of ecosystems and the territories related to them. Today he is a member of the Technical Support Unit of the National Observatory of River Contracts at the Ministry of Ecological Transition: "We need to build new synergies between man and nature, between anthropic communities. We are experiencing an era of unprecedented demographic, technological and cultural complexity”.

The slow time of construction, the slow time of exploration. Being one thing made of thought, body and nature: for 30 years he has been practicing kayaking, canoeing and rafting in the many forms of competition and travel, first as a student and then as a teacher of the Italian Canoe Kayak Federation (FICK). Boats are an opportunity to teach adults and children the immense heritage of the environment, the pleasure of study and discovery. Communication, and the necessary solitude. He has explored the upper Adriatic, the Tuscan archipelago and Cyprus by kayak. He has crossed the Aegean Sea, circumnavigated Corsica, the Dalmatian islands and Sardinia: “We must go by land, by water, by sky and enjoy the beauty that we can and must take care of”.

In 2018 the first encounter with MEDSEA, and the inclusion in the group of experts that deals with environmental governance for the protection of Marine Protected Areas and wetlands. "I have found a team that like me loves to question itself, capable of looking at the world from multiple points of view, of making courageous choices to build the future of those who will come after us". A wake of water stirred by the paddle, in silence as in the symphony of man and nature.
