Ecological footprint for the Mediterranean
Save the date 1 and 2 October 2012 for the conference on "Securing Competitiveness for the Mediterranean. Exploring Ecological Footprint and biocapacity trends and their implications for the Mediterranean" to take place in Venice (Italy).
UNESCO Venice Office, Global Footprint Network and the MAVA Foundation will officially launch the "Mediterranean Ecological Footprint Trends" report and workshops addressing the economic implications of resource constraints in the Mediterranean region.
Participants, including that of the report's collaborating organizations, will gather for a rare opportunity to share their expertise and perspectives on an issue of critical importance to the region's stability and prosperity. Government finance, planning and environment representatives, NGOs and academics who wish to better understand the link between economic and environmental crises will especially value this two-day conference.
