First Capitalization Conference

On the 18th of June 2021, the MPA Engage project will organize its first capitalization event providing an opportunity to key stakeholder groups active on the science-policy-society interface to connect and share experiences related to climate change adaptation and mitigation in Mediterranean MPAs.

The event targets a large number of stakeholders, which are members of the project’s capitalizations boards, namely the Science4Change (brings together scientists from the Mediterranean), the MPA4Change (brings together managers of Mediterranean MPAs) and the Med4Change (brings together the main Mediterranean policy actors).

The 2.5-hour long online event (11.30-14:00 CET) will bring forward the recent policy and scientific advances with regards to climate change and its impacts in the region, while it will also place special emphasis on showcasing the MPA Engage collective response to mitigate and adapt to climate change in Mediterranean MPAs.
