It also aims to create the necessary environment for “convergences” so that we realise the ultimate goal: Greece with Zero Exclusion, Zero Carbon, Zero Poverty! The Convergences Greece Forum is under the Auspices of H.E. the President of the Hellenic Republic Mr. Prokopios Pavlopoulos. It is co-organised by the Convergences World Forum and the World Human Forum in collaboration with the UN Sustainable Network Solution Network Greece.
Organisations, civil society groups, companies representatives from the private & public sector, media representatives, academics, students, citizens meet in a third space and while participating in an open dialogue, jointly seek solutions to the most important problems the country is facing.
The CPF co-organizes (together with the Hellenic Society for the Protection of the Nature) and moderates one of the forum sessions, entitled Resilience and Sustainability in small island communities, that will take place on the 2nd of April at Hub Events.
We are happy also to host some of our local partners from the Cyclades, such as the Environmental Park of Paros and the Social Cooperative Enterspise Apano Meria of Syros as a great opportunity to elevate their voice and share some of their main challenges and best practices with other organizations, civil society groups, companies representatives from the private & public sector, media representatives, academics, students and citizens.
