Morocco will participate in Ecomondo and Key Energy international exhibitions, scheduled for November 08-11 in Rimini, Italy.
Innovators, international and national authorities, the world of science and academia, decision-makers and investors will take part in these fairs for sustainable development, the “Italian Exhibition Group” said in a statement.
The 2022 edition will pay particular attention to energy challenges and opportunities in Africa, the organizers said, noting that the 2nd edition of “Africa Green Growth,” held within the framework of Ecomondo and Key Energy, will see the participation of several African countries, including Morocco.
“Leaders in green economy and renewable energy, our fairs will become a real platform for exchange and networking opportunities between the two continents,” Corrado Peraboni, CEO of IEG-Italian Exhibition Group, was quoted as saying in the release.
Organized in collaboration with the RES4Africa Foundation, with the support of the ITA-Italian Trade Agency, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Ministry of Ecological Transition, this event will focus on the opportunities offered by green hydrogen, the “water-energy-food” nexus and youth entrepreneurship in Africa.
From climate change to the recycling of materials through the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy, the two fairs offer a hundred seminars and lectures moderated by Professors Fabio Fava and Gianni Silvestrini, who head the respective scientific and technical committees of the two platforms, the organizers added.
Ecomondo will also host the 11th edition of the States General of the Green Economy, promoted by the National Council of the Green Economy in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Ecological Transition and the European Commission.
The exhibition area, which occupies the entire Expo Center and is the heart of Ecomondo and Key Energy, will showcase the latest technologies in waste recovery of circular bio-economy, water resource management and recovery and redevelopment of industrial sites, the statement concludes.
