“Sustainable Territories” Symposium 23 October

Following the great success of the first edition, Pollutec Morocco will be repeating the “Sustainable Territories” Symposium. In 2012, nearly 1,700 people came along (including 35 speakers) to get informed and debate the big environmental issues and the prospects for sustainable development in Morocco’s towns and regions. The Symposium offers a forum for exchanging ideas for the various national and international institutions, politicians, economic players, practitioners and decision-makers at local level. It is also a meeting place which aims to promote synergies between potential investors and public and private institutions with a view to creating or supporting new projects in Morocco. The theme of the 2013 edition will be “Strengthening the capabilities of local authorities in order to implement the governmental charter on sustainable development”.

Aouraches: “The great projects of modern Morocco”

Furthermore, to mark the 50th birthday of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, the show will host the first edition of “Aouraches”: a showcase for strategic “Modern Morocco” infrastructure projects. The initiative provides a vast showcase for the main construction projects in progress in Morocco today. It will foster interaction between economic players and existing and potential investors (from Morocco and elsewhere).

A programme of lectures and technical workshops 24 October

In addition, a whole day will be devoted to the ADEME ADEREE conference on the theme of local strategies for sustainable urban development through action on energy efficiency.
The day will focus on sustainable cities with the aim of promoting French know-how in the fields of renewable energies, energy efficiency and waste, as well as encouraging and strengthening cooperation agreements with the Kingdom of Morocco.
