In partnership with Plan Bleu and as part of its MED2050 prospective study, the CIHEAM is mobilizing its students and ALUMNI to imagine the future of the Mediterranean!

Since Wednesday 10 march, the CIHEAM has been questioning its students about their vision of the possible future of the Mediterranean region. To do so, it has relied on a partnership with the NGO Com4Dev, which is familiar with foresight and facilitation exercises of groups, with a view to co-constructing reflections and advocacy.

The survey is structured around various questions relating to the perception of the current situation, probable future visions, ruptures, and/or long-term transformations.

This project aims to confront several possible visions of the future of the Mediterranean by 2050 and to co-build solid and realistic transition paths towards common sustainable development goals.

The CIHEAM Montpellier is the first one involved, the Institutes of Bari (Italy), Chania (Greece), and Zaragoza (Spain) will follow.

In view of the 12th Ministerial Meeting of the CIHEAM which will focus on Women and Youth Empowerment in agro-food systems and rural areas (Morocco, Autumn 2022) and the celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the CIHEAM, this survey will also provide a better understanding of the needs and aspirations of CIHEAM students and ALUMNI.

The answers could thus contribute to the current reflections and help to determine the actions of the CIHEAM in the fields of training, research, and cooperation.
