7th edition of the

Greening the Islands e_Convention
International Conference and Exhibition

In 2020, Greening the Islands launches the 7th GTI e_Convention, a virtual event that will take place from the 24th to the 27th of November and will include the well established conference with workshops on island circular economies and an exhibition area where islands and corporates come together to originate projects.

The island event will start with an opening session on islands as laboratories of innovation and climate change mitigation and will end with the 6th edition of the GTI Awards.

The global three days’ event focused on the most innovative solutions on energy, water, mobility, waste, agriculture, blue growth and sustainable tourism will be followed by a European Forum deepening the EU policies and the new regulation on energy storage to accelerate the sustainable transition of islands.

Latest digital technology will allow the GTI e_Convention to facilitate participation from all over the world, while minimizing emissions and complying with the present international health requirements.

The GTI e_Convention will promote private-public partnerships and cover all the 17 SDGs of the 2030 United Nations Agenda with a specific focus on the particular needs of islands communities.

As a unique feature, the exhibition area with virtual stands offers to the islands the opportunity to promote their territories and local products and show their needs, and to the corporates to show innovative solutions and best practices.

The GTI e_Convention will grant the possibility of diving into the islands world drawing on the vast experience accumulated over the years from its Observatory.

In fact, since 2017, GTI Observatory has been running a deep dive into islands status and needs, facilitating the origination of projects.

Working group and task forces on energy, water, mobility, waste, mobility, agriculture, blue growth and sustainable tourism ensure to deepen the different technologies of the circular economies. The progress of each Observatory’s task force, as well as topics of potential new ones, will be presented in thematic workshops during the International Conference.
