Green economy as development opportunity for EU islands

October 10, 2018 from 11:30 to 13:00

Islands share similar needs, in terms of energy supplies, climate change impacts and accessibility. On the other hand, island status can be an opportunity to pursue innovative strategies on renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainable mobility, the circular economy, protected areas, etc. Therefore, the issue of insularity needs to be addressed as part of the sustainable development theme. In this regard, the workshop aims to share experiences and good practices as well as to foster cooperation among EU islands and regions with the aim of promoting sustainable growth for Mediterranean and EU islands.
