Green Blue Deal for the Middle East  November 30th to December 2nd 2020

We cordially invite you to participate in EcoPeace’s Annual Conference taking place from Monday 30th November to Wednesday 2nd December 2020.

EcoPeace Middle East is a unique Jordanian-Palestinian-Israeli organization that seeks to advance cooperative efforts in our region to protect our shared environment, promote sustainable regional development, and create necessary conditions for lasting peace. The theme and objective of this year’s 3-day conference is the launch of a new EcoPeace report outlining a proposal for a ‘Green Blue Deal for the Middle East’. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the event this year will be a hybrid of virtual and physical engagement.

The first day of the conference will focus on impact investment opportunities in our region and feature Sir Ronald Cohen, Chairman of the Social Impact Investment Taskforce established under the UK’s presidency of the G8, and Chair of the Portland Trust, as keynote speaker.

The second day will focus on EcoPeace’s Education Program Responding to 2020 Challenges and feature Professor Ken Conca, from the American University in Washington DC, as keynote speaker. Professor Conca has published much research on environmental education thereby gaining a high level of international recognition including several prestigious awards.

The third day marks the official launch of EcoPeace’s Report on a Green Blue Deal. HRH Princess Esmeralda of Belgium, the Foreign Minister of Finland His Excellency Pekka Haavisto and Economist & Author of Green New Deal Mr. Jeremy Rifkin will be featured as keynote speakers. Additional speakers, international and from the region, will be announced closer to the event.

We would be grateful if you can confirm your interest in participating in one or more days, by completing the registration form available here.
