I can not but recall the EMECS "Madrigal Sea" podium. Many of the arguments sound very familiar ! I mentioned the 2 weeks ago Kiel Ocean Futures event - See my blog below March 4-6: [link]
As the results were so interesting in Kiel I could not resits but check in for Sofia. Why? there are so few integrated "All Win" aor win-win-win approaches, but as I collect them, I feel I should learn about the Black Sea and see that it is Green/Blue again soon ...
Here are Powerpoint slides of our ReefFormers project as we did them the night before... [link]
Enjoy and check for more and new answers - for old and new questions and solutions.
In general: I find this multi-stakeholder gatherings, cross-border, and multi-lingual very interesting and rewarding.
It is like a hearing in the old days. The incomming "king" travels his lands and makes receptions for his people...
The questions is as alwaxs: What is next!
We have to learn about the other positions and views. I will report back to the COMMONS CLUSTER (ECOSOC) [link] (see recommendations at page 3) and let us review the MDG - SDG transition and activity areas priorities around not only the BALTIC SEA and the BLACK SEA ....
