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.

Editions of the “Mediterranean Climate Change Adaptation Awards” are organised by the French Agency for ecological transition (ADEME), with the support of its Mediterranean partners the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) and Plan Bleu. The competition rewards exemplary and concrete actions to adapt to climate change in the Mediterranean.

ADEME, the Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean and Plan Bleu invite you to take part in the conference for the closure of the 3rd Trophies award for adapting to climate change in the Mediterranean.

– Where: direct link to conference (without registration)
– Language: French / English / Arabic
– Audience: local authority, national agency, public university, NGO, company

The Mediterranean basin, with its 500 million inhabitants, is an area that has been strongly impacted by climate change, as outlined in the recent report by the MedECC (Mediterranean Experts on Climate and Environmental Change). The towns and regions of the Mediterranean basin have made use of their strengths to boost the resilience of their social, economic and environmental systems, helping them to absorb the impact of extreme weather and climatic events today and tomorrow.
The competition rewards local players for exemplary and replicable practices to adapt to climate change. This 3rd Trophies ceremony is a chance to recall the urgency of taking action and the importance of sharing experience.

The aim? To inspire, innovate and mobilise all the players involved in adapting to climate change from coastal, urban and rural populations around the Mediterranean Sea. Come and meet the Trophies 2021 prize-winners and discuss the obstacles to overcome and the conditions for the success and deployment of these solutions on a wider scale.

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.

Tipicità in Blu

Tipicità in Blu
ANCONA » Marche » Italy
29 settembre – 3 Ottobre 2021

Tipicità in blu è un “Festival-lab” nato nel 2014 e divenuto negli anni un punto di riferimento, con una vasta rete di relazioni in Italia e all’estero.
Il focus è la “blue way” ossia la sperimentazione di format ed iniziative prototipali che esplorano le traiettorie di sviluppo sostenibile per le comunità marinare, anche in relazione alle aree interne.
Nello scenario Adriatico-Ionico, ad oggi Tipicità in Blu si distingue come esclusivo incubatore e contenitore di attività ed eventi sul tema della Blue economy, focalizzati su nautica, pesca, enogastronomia, sostenibilità, cantieristica, turismo e viaggi, cultura e patrimonio, cooperazione, giovani, innovazione e nuove professioni.
Nel 2016 il Forum delle Camere di Commercio della Macro Regione Adriatico-Ionica (MRAI) ha definito Tipicità in blu come formula ideale per l’ottimale valorizzazione dei patrimoni culturali locali.
Nel 2020, anno della pandemia, Tipicità in blu è evoluto e si è consolidato ulteriormente in virtù di un’efficace reattività che ha consentito di “spalmare” le attività nel tempo e nello spazio, accrescendo ulteriormente la community, attraverso modalità innovative di tipo “phygital”.
