Subject: Transition towards blue and green economies in the Mediterranean


Description: ASCAME, in the framework of the InnoBlueGrowth Project, will co-organise the “Transition towards blue and green economies in the Mediterranean” event that marks the Blue Growth Community’s three years anniversary, representing the end of its first implementation period and bridging to the upcoming one.


After three years of reflections, technical analyses and pilots, multiple events and links with external key actors, this event brings together both the Blue Growth and Green Growth Communities, joining forces to reflect on key common issues and spaces for more collaboration towards innovative sustainable growth in the Mediterranean.  


On Thursday 19 September, we will address the role of territorial cooperation for sustainable development will be addressed, as well as business innovation, access to finance, education to sustainability, and policy-making for bluer and greener economies. The event aims to reflect on regional smart specialization strategies and on how sustainability is fostered through Mediterranean clusters.


On Friday 20 September, both communities will present the opportunity to address inherent issues in a more sectoral way linked to the blue economy on the one hand, and to the green economy on the other.  


Both days are open to a wide variety of participants and will involve key stakeholders from the European Institutions, the private and finance sectors, the academia, NGOs and thematic community projects for a common dialogue.
