MED Forum - Mediterranean NGOs Network for Ecology & Sustainable Development
Contact: Ramon Sanromà
Aim: Our aim is to promote the defense and protection of the environment within a framework of sustainable development in the Mediterranean region. MED Forum believes that the preservation of the environment and of the nature is only possible on the basis of solidarity between individuals and between peoples, solidarity between them and their surroundings, and between the people of today and future generations. Mediterranean is the meeting point between North and South of our planet and MED Forum promotes the intercultural dialogue and the cooperation for a sustainable development between both shores.
