Education, health and environmental services are basic needs that are recognized as being fundamental rights. However, there are still very wide gaps in meeting those needs, making them an obstacle to sustainable development.
Drawing on the analysis and testimonials of renowned international experts, the first conference on future environmental trends intends to be the starting point for a new debate aimed at identifying the fields of action and collaboration, stimulating the desire to take action and measuring progress made through time.
The two-day conference will be an opportunity to take part in this discussion for representatives of international organizations working in research, education, health and the environment, as well as public authorities, members of NGOs and environmental services specialists. We believe that education, the environment and health are central to the major issues for tomorrow’s society. The overlapping elements between these three areas open up possibilities for innovative proposals that will shed new light on the sustainable development debate.
