After the great interest it aroused and the encouraging numbers of participants in previous years, Mediterre aims to continue the exchange of ideas and experiences, and to underline the vital importance of co-operation in nature conservation and sustainable local development.
MEDITERRE is aimed at national and local authorities, conservation agencies, scientific and research institutions, enterprises and associations working to protect the natural environment of the Mediterranean basin.
The various exhibitors will have the opportunity to publicise the natural attractions, tourist facilities, cultural riches and typical products of their protected areas, as well as their "best practices" in protecting nature and the environment.
MEDITERRE thus aims to be a unique international opportunity, a time to compare points of view, and this has already led to a series of new strategies and approaches to help build a more sustainable habitat for all of the inhabitants of this planet.
As well as being an exhibition space, MEDITERRE is also an arena for meetings and debates, wih the participation of a range of institutions, agencies and professionals in the nature conservation sector; additionally, a series of conferences and seminars is currently being drawn up.
