Ideas for a Sustainable Mediterranean
The Med Dialogues +2030 is an annual conference series organised and promoted by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, the Barcelona Office of the Club of Rome, and “la Caixa” Foundation, which fosters debate on sustainable development issues in the Mediterranean region.
By giving voice to renowned experts and actors from both shores of the Mediterranean Sea and a variety of backgrounds, the Med Dialogues +2030 seek to raise greater awareness and understanding of the critical sustainability challenges faced by Mediterranean countries.
Launched in 2021 as the region was entering the “Decade of Action”, the Med Dialogues +2030 adopts each year a different approach to the implementation and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), putting forward analyses and recommendations to contribute to building a more resilient, sustainable, prosperous, inclusive, and safer Mediterranean region by 2030.
A Human Security Approach to the 2030 Agenda: Achieving Freedom from Fear, Want and Indignity in the Mediterranean
The second edition of the Med Dialogues +2030 tackles the current and most serious threats to human security that hamper progress towards the effective delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or could even lead to severe development setbacks in the Mediterranean region. Consequently, the different sessions of the conference series not only analyse these regional challenges but elaborate on comprehensive solutions, integrated actions and cooperation opportunities that contribute to protect and free all Mediterranean people from poverty, hunger, exclusion, violence, and disease, ensuring that no one is left behind.
