Greening the Islands Foundation

9th edition of the

Greening the Islands eConvention

International Conference and Exhibition

26, 27 and 28 October 2022

The GTI eConvention is the global event dedicated to the self-sufficiency and sustainability of islands worldwide. For 8 editions, it has been an opportunity for islands stakeholders such as governments, utilities, innovative solution providers, academia and others to connect and share their experiences, match island needs and sustainable solutions, and face common challenges building consortia for national, regional and international tenders.

Most technological solutions are replicable in islands worldwide, while policy frameworks and financing mechanisms are often specific to regions. As a new feature, the 9th edition will analyze the main challenges in 4 macro regions with the involvement of local partners.
