2012 Forum programme

Have a look at the 2012 Forum programme ..



For the first time in the Mediterranean, over 300 key players involved in the marine environment have gathered to share their experiences and develop a joint roadmap to advance the network of Marine Protected Areas in the Mediterranean. Coming from one of the 21 countries bordering the Mediterranean and beyond, you are a representative of a national agency, a field manager, a scientist, a nongovernmental organization, a regional or an international partner, or a local economic actor, and you have come to share your experience, learn from that of others, and network.

You will also contribute to shaping up the Mediterranean MPA agenda for the next few years. Your participation is key and we look forward to the fruitful exchanges. We have designed a rich agenda during which you can participate in a field trip, attend plenary sessions, workshops, a round table, side events, focus sessions, or chat around stands and scientific posters. This programme gives you a detailed view of the sessions that are planned.


The sessions:


1- Plenary sessions are open to all. They will take place in the VERANO room.

2- The workshops and the round table are work-sessions on a specific topic and will provide concrete recommendations to the Roadmap. These events are limited to 50 pre-registered participants. You have received a confirmation from the organizing committee if you are scheduled to attend one or several of these sessions. The round table takes place in the TERRAZA 2 room and the workshops take place in the VERANO room.

3- The focus sessions will present the main results of the projects conducted by the Forum’s partners. These events are open to all. They take place in the CALIENTE room.

4- The side events are participative sessions that include time for discussions and exchange. These events are limited to 30 participants on a first-come first-served basis. They take place in the PRIMAVERA room.
