The GTI Observatory will hold a meeting in Gozo (Malta) on 26-27 May 2022, bringing together key Maltese stakeholders and authorities, as well as leading international institutions and innovators to explore solutions in support of Gozo’s strategy for sustainable transition, as a pilot for the decarbonization of the entire island state.
The high-level, operative meeting will be hosted by the local government, involving key local stakeholders, Ministries Representatives, Corporates, Universities and Industry Association Members and will focus on energy, water, mobility, waste, and sustainable agriculture topics. The meeting will also include sessions on air quality, ports electrification, bicycle business models and policy infrastructure, and best practices by the GTI Corporate Members.
The meeting is a core part of the GTI Observatory Green Island membership, which aims to support the islands in developing an efficient decarbonization strategy identifying needed projects and most suitable solutions as well as possible financing opportunities for the sustainability of the island. The GTI Observatory also aims to promote public-private collaboration, develop policy recommendations, and create coalitions for tenders based on the multisectoral data gathered through the islands stakeholder.
In October 2019, the Ministry for Gozo, The Gozo Business Chamber and Greening the Islands have signed an agreement granting Gozo the qualification of “Green Island Member” in the GTI Observatory, with the support of the Gozo Regional Development Authority (GRDA). The meeting had to be postponed due to the pandemic.
The GTI Observatory meeting will be open to the Gozo and Malta community in presence at the Gozo Innovation Hub venue.
