The forum is an international space organized by the UNESCO Committee in Technologies for Development will take place in Lausanne, Switzerland, between 2 and 4 of May.
On Friday 8th of April, iWith.org was participating in AIESEC Career Forum in IQS Barcelona.
Many european and asian countries are moving forward to new energy models which allow the sustainable development of their economies.
This process is nor eary neither immediate and means high expenditures. However, these expenditures are even less than the price we would have to pay if we didn’t act on time. This was basically the message of the VI Forum Asia
. The importance of renewable energies, organized by Casa Asia
(Asian House in Barcelona)
After the last month’s Global Eco Forum
direct broadcast, this time Iwith.org invites you to watch our report on Forum Asia and think about what we could do for a green and better future for all of us.
What should we do? What can we expect from the Copenhagen Conference? What will our world be like in 20 years' time? These are some of the questions asked in the Global Eco Forum. We have selected some responses from iWith.org for our readers and for those who were unable to follow the event live.
Late last night, with the sounds of Burruezo and Bohemia Camerata, we participated in the closing of the Global Eco-Forum in Barcelona.
Under the slogan The Transition Towards Sustainability, the Forum has united the great names of European environmental protection such as Cristina Narbona, Spanish ambassador of OCDE, Dominique Voynet, one of the founders of the Green Party in France, and Dimitri Zenghelis from the Office of Climatic Change in the United Kingdom.
Today, the 26th and tomorrow the 27th of October, with Iwith.org follow in live the Global Eco Forum
that takes place in Barcelona.
