Eco-Cities of the Mediterranean Forum
From October 18-20th, 2014, Eco-Cities of the Mediterranean Forum will be held at the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar at the Dead Sea, Jordan. An initiative of the Jordanian Ministry of the Environment, the conference is organized by the Jordan Green Building Council in partnership with the Ministry of Municipal Affairs, Greater Amman Municipality, UNEP and UNIDO, and sponsored by the USAID Jordan Competitiveness Program and Global Communities. The forum brings together representatives from countries, municipalities, the private sector, NGOs, intergovernmental organizations and academia, to discuss solutions to environmental challenges which promote both economic growth and social responsibility. This year’s conference is estimated to have an audience of over 500 participants, and sponsorship opportunities are still available.
David Weiss, President and CEO of Global Communities will be a featured speaker discussing the organizations role as a leader in creating inclusive, environmentally sustainable cites across the globe. Whether supporting efforts to train youth for the green jobs of the future in Jordan or working to improve waste collection in Bangalore, Global Communities is dedicated to working to ensure economic development and an improving environment are available to everyone.
