Durres, Albania, between 15 and 16 November 2018
The 3rd transnational event of the Interreg MED Green Growth Community will take place in Durres, Albania, between 15 and 16 November 2018. It will be the first time the MED Green Growth Community will meet for such an event in a Balkan country. The 3rd transnational event of the Community will analyse the role of policy makers in enhancing the Green Growth innovation and policies and will create contexts of exchanges on the impact of several key players in boosting Green Growth economies. The MED Green Growth Community 3rd transnational event will offer its participants a tailormade programme with participation from key stakeholders and participatory sessions to debate about the significant role of policies and green growth interventions in domains such as funding, public procurement, rural revitalization and resilience, urban development, sustainable agriculture and industries. The event will benefit from the participation of a large number of MED stakeholders, such as national, regional and local authorities, companies, professional associations and research centres coming from Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Kosovo and Albania. Various institutional actors (ministries, national institutes of statistics, international and regional development agencies, and municipalities) from different regions and countries will present their initiatives and vision on green growth innovation and policies and will analyse their consistency and complementarities with those of other MED countries. The 3rd transnational event will kick-off with a community building session organized with the representatives of the 14 modular projects belonging to the Interreg MED Green Growth community (the participation at this session is restricted to project partners only). The event represents the first technical working meeting of the Community that was enlarged with 8 new projects in 2018. It aims to create a functional framework for the next year within which the modular projects will closely work together in thematic groups, both online and face-to-face, to strengthen their capitalization and policy inputs activities, as well as to develop joint political statements.
