Festival Jardins Pedralbes

The Jardins Pedralbes Festival is a Concert Studio project. It has been 7 years since the first Jardins Pedralbes Festival, which was created by our passion for music and the city of Barcelona. We dreamed of an open place, outdoors, in contact with nature and history. With the support of the City Council of Barcelona and the Ministry of Culture of Generalitat de Catalunya, the idea ended in the Gardens of the Pedralbes Palace. Today, thanks to all of you, the festival has grown, becoming a reference in Europe.

Jimi Hendrix said that music does not lie. We created this festival for him and for all those who believe that music can change things and transform lives.

Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus

Since 2017, Menorca has been the stage for the Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus, organized by the Trobades Literàries Mediterrànies (TLM) Association and the Sant Lluís town council. Both the Trobades Mediterrànies Albert Camus and the Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus, which take place during alternating years, promote the gathering of Mediterranean thinkers and creators to celebrate the work and thought of Albert Camus, whose grandmother was born in Sant Lluís, Menorca, as well as to reinforce the role of culture and art in today’s society. In the words of its promoter, Miguel Ángel Moratinos, its goal is to “define Menorca as the Davos of Culture, where we dare to imagine the political utopias we strive to realize in our Mediterranean region in the near future. We cannot remain silent in the face of the tragedies that take place in our community. We must take action”.

Conference on Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystems Nexus Scientific Advances in the Mediterranean Region

Increasing demand for water, energy and food, due to population growth and urbanization, is aggravated by unprecedented extreme weather and climatic conditions. This situation is likely to undermine the sustainable and peaceful development of the Mediterranean region. As these sectors are strongly interlinked, sustainable development and social stability in the region cannot be achieved simply by considering the management of Water, Energy, Food and Ecosystems (WEFE) as separate resources.

Partnerships between policy makers, practitioners and scientists are essential to identify best practices and solutions across this nexus, to be shared and used across borders in the Mediterranean region.

The Conference will analyse the role of science as a driver of innovation for the sustainable development of the Mediterranean region, and its interfacing with the policy and decision-making processes. It will recommend practical measures on how to integrate new paths in research and planning across the WEFE Nexus, through a collaborative response throughout the Mediterranean region.
