The MedWet exhibition “Our wetlands our people”

The heart of the Agora during the COP12

The Mediterranean Wetlands Initiative (MedWet) welcomed the Mediterranean community at the Mediterranean Agora and all other delegates and observers during the Ramsar COP12 held from 1-9 June 2015 in Punta del Este, Uruguay.

Inspired by the vibrant Agorae in ancient Greek city, the Mediterranean Agora is a place of knowledge and exchange, promoting cooperation and recognizing the rich variety of cultures. It is also a place to discuss, to relax and share good moments, in the best Mediterranean style.

The heart of the Agora was an exhibition of thirty colourful posters on the theme “Our wetlands, our people”. Celebrating the beauty of Mediterranean wetlands and their people, the exhibition presents each of the 27 MedWet countries and entities, also reproduced in postcards with a small text behind explaining the positive relation between wetlands and people in English, French and Spanish.

In the coming months, the exhibition should be travelling all over the Mediterranean countries.
