The debate – which involved institutions, the academic world and enterprises – focuses on the challenges in the Mediterranean area, a strategic place for development, growth and connection between Europe, Africa and Asia. Among the topics covered, there will be the impact of the Ukraine-Russian war and the pandemic on this area, the challenges concerning energy and food safety, and the cultural and religious dialogue.
