The 2nd Mediterranean Water Forum took place in Murcia (Spain) from 24 to 26 November 2014. It was part of the preparatory process for the 7th World Water Forum (WWF7) planned in Daegu (Korea), April 2015. Its discussions and outcomes will feedin the themes and orientations of the 7th World Water Forum.
It is the first time that Education and Capacity Building are included in the formal agenda of the WWF, and this is considered a great achievement for the Mediterranean, which leads this thematic component.
Prof. Micheal Scoullos from MIO-ECSDE and Iro Alampei from MEdIES actively participated in the Forum. Specifically, Michael SCOULLOS has coordinated the working group entitled Enhancing Water Education and Capacity Building.
The group pointed out that water education is an important tool in achieving Sustainable Development and an integral part of Education for Sustainable Development. Actually water can serve as an "entry point" to address all SD issues, and link effectively different policies and management approaches such as IWRM and ICZM.
The group also reviewed and gave some inputs for the upcoming Action Plan in the framework of the Mediterranean Strategy on ESD (MSESD), that was endorsed in Athens in May 2014 by the 43 UfM Ministers of Environment.
Prof. Scoullos participated also in closing session of the Forum and gave some cocluding remarks
