Greening the Islands 4th national conference | 6th international conference

EASE is glad to support the  6th international conference and the 4th Greening the Islands national conference, organized in collaboration with CPMR (Conference Peripheral Maritime Regions) Islands Commission, which will take place in Palermo on 15 October 2019.

At the opening of the international event the first report of the Greening the Islands Observatory will be presented, which includes a general analysis on the European islands on circular economy and sustainable tourism and a deep dive on Crete, the Italian Egadi archipelago and the German island of Helgoland. A debate will follow on the results of the study and on opportunities for public and private financing with particular reference to the projects and initiatives that will have been identified on the mentioned islands.

The second part will involve the European institutions and industrial associations on the subject of National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) and the role of the islands.

The event in Palermo will be an important step in the roadmap of the multilateral islands dialogue table with the European institutions launched by the CPMR Islands Commission and Greening the Islands with an event held in Brussels on June 18th with the support of the Committee of the Regions, where a joint declaration has been presented containing some of the key points that the table asks to be included in the NECPs.
