World Island Networks and Organisations – Session 1: Europe, Africa, Caribbean, Americas

November 19th

In the past months, SMILO have been working on a mapping of island networks and organisations that focus on environmental or island heritage protection. This initiative aims to identify island networks and organisations that work at least on more than one island at a national level. SMILO will now conduct a series of online meetings to start answering the need to know who does what and where, in order to identify geographical or thematical gaps of such organisms, to encourage new partnerships, ultimately offering better answers to islands’ needs. This first session will focus on Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and the Americas. A simultaneous translation in French will be available. This event is organised in partnership with the Global Island Partnership (GLISPA). It is supported by the Conservatoire du littoral, Green Cross France et Territoires, Island Conservation, Initiative PIM, Precovery Labs, and takes place under the umbrella of ICO solutions.
