“VISIONING MED 2020+ Mediterranean in Transition: Preserving the Past - Preparing for the Future”
The event for cities and islands in the Mediterranean region
Our planet is nowadays confronted with major challenges, such as the severe climate change impacts, the escalating urbanization rates, the loss of biodiversity, the intensifying resource scarcity, the upsurge in migratory flows, the current health crisis and its unpredictable human and economic losses, to name a few.
The Mediterranean Region constitutes a hotspot in most of the aforementioned respects, with unpredicted repercussions with regard to its future sustainability perspective. Undesirable trends and related risks call for trend-breaking endeavors targeting sustainability, i.e. decrease of the ecological footprint of the Mediterranean settlements, reverse of economic recession and pursuance of resilient, livable, healthy and prosperous MED localities for the current and future generations.
