Co-Creating An Experimental Marine Area in the Mediterranean area

Co-Creating An Experimental Marine Area in the Mediterranean area

Saturday, October 15, 2022

Is it possible to connect marine science, academics, startuppers, trade associations, and international experts to expand marine research, accelerate solutions to empower regenerative fishermen, and preserve Mediterranean biodiversity?

The Paideia Campus in Pollica, located in the heart of the Mediterranean area, firmly believes that the answer can be YES.  

The purpose behind co-creating an Experimental Marine Area of the Mediterranean is the desire for joint and participatory innovation, in which technology merges with culture and human know-how. 

On 14 October 2022, the Paideia Campus – proudly part of the Cities2030 network – organized an online event that has been included among the official side events of the FAO Science Technologies and Innovation Forum

Starting from the need to safeguard both the natural wealth of the Mediterranean and the survival of small-scale fishermen, the event shared innovations such as those developed by Surefish to promote traceability and authenticity of the catch, the role of trade associations such as Assoittica and no profit organization such as Marevivo Onlus, and the profound need to educate consumers to make more conscious and diversified purchases. 

Thanks to the research undertaken by the University of Naples Federico II about food consumers’ choices and trends and to the unstoppable effort from Sara Roversi and Stefano Pisani – Mayor of Pollica – for turning the vision of Pollica 2050 into a tangible reality.
