Where islands, governments and corporates come together!
A think tank to analyse island needs and identify innovative solutions in energy, water, mobility and other environmental sectors to support the definition and the implementation of strategies and plans of governments and corporates.
We have created the Greening the Islands Observatory to respond to a pressing need expressed by a range of stakeholders in our conferences: having a systematic and scientific approach to island sustainability across key sectors like energy, water and mobility.
The Observatory will respond to this urgent necessity by gathering and compiling information and providing analysis on essential topics:
costs, technologies and solutions, laws and regulations, licenses and permits. We are forming a Scientific Island Committee to guide the Observatory activities in terms of the needs and solutions required for islands to respect environmental, landscape, geomorphological and social diversity.
The committee will include representatives of government, international institutions, industry associations, companies and other island stakeholders.
The Greening the Islands Observatory will conduct its activities over a period of three years, based on annual plans. These plans will be proposed by Greening the Islands and discussed during the Scientific Islands Committee meetings. Plans will indicate objectives for the annual and intermediate studies and set a schedule of meetings.
BECOME A MEMBER
You can join the Greening the Islands Observatory and help shape its activities to make it as effective as possible for your needs.
Observatory members will not only attend meetings to discuss the progress of its studies but also gain a precious opportunity to increase their network with our multidisciplinary team of experts through face-to-face meetings, online forums, webinars and conferences organised by Greening the Islands.
The first operational meeting of the Observatory will be held in May in occasion of the Greening the Islands Conference in Minorca, where members will have a unique opportunity to address the targets and plans for the Observatory’s first working year.
