Our Ocean Conference

 

5-6 October 2017
Malta

 

Over 3 billion people depend directly on our seas for their livelihoods. But in reality, all of us depend on the ocean: for our water, our food, our climate and our air.

Seas and oceans enrich our identity, ensure our wellbeing and sustain a large part of the economy.

Human action has left our ocean heavily affected by pollution, overexploitation, coastal degradation and global warming. This has severe consequences for all.

Sustainable Tourism in the Mediterranean: State of Play and Strategic Directions

Aug 03, 2017

 

Although tourism is a vector for economic growth -representing 11% of the region’s GDP and 11% of jobs- it also brings with it a depletion of natural resources, an increase in pollution and a deterioration of cultural treasures, not to mention income distribution that does not always benefit local populations. The United Nations’ declaration of 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism provides an opportunity to put several projects into action.
