Exploring Ecological Footprint and biocapacity trends and their implications for the Mediterranean

The Global Footprint Network, UNESCO and the MAVA Foundation are holding the official launch of the Mediterranean Ecological Footprint Trends report and workshops addressing the economic implications of resource constraints in the Mediterranean region, from the 1st-2nd October 2012 in Venice, Italy. Participants will gather at the beautiful historic Palazzo Zorzi 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 the two-day conference.
