Join us for the EFIMED Week 2016 this autumn (7-9 November) in Calabria, southern Italy. This year´s event is titled: Smart Mediterranean Forestry, bioeconomy and social integration.

We'll explore how Mediterranean forests could better contribute to the creation of livelihoods, jobs and social opportunities for rural inhabitants and migrants, while also helping address other key challenges, such as energy, water and food security, mitigation and nature conservation.

Come and learn about examples of social forestry in Calabria and in other regions, meet the EFIMED Network and help us identify the critical factors for the creation of a forest-based, sustainable and equitable Mediterranean bioeconomy!
