The 2017 EAERE conference will take place at the Megaron Athens International Conference Centre, situated within walking distance of some of the hottest spots and cultural events in one of the world’s oldest cities. If you are a fan of Ancient Greece, bring along your most comfortable shoes and take a walk through time. A large open-air museum will unfold before your eyes, from the ancient Agora to the nearby Acropolis and Parthenon, to the Temple of Olympic Zeus and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus Theater.
Athens is a member of the C40 Cities that are working to advance specific climate actions and foster targeted knowledge sharing. Athens is also a participant in the Resilient Cities Network; while facing a challenging economic policy environment, Athens is working to increase employment, manage climate-change risks, and execute an ambitious urban regeneration plan. In addition, ICRE8 and the Political Economy of Sustainable Development Lab, operating by the Department of Economics of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, co-host the Greek chapter of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network and are organizing the annual Mediterranean UN SDSN conference in November 2016.
The European Environment Agency recently awarded Greece blue flags for the quality of its bathing waters at 430 of its beaches, so if you enjoy swimming or water sports, be sure to pack your swimming gear. Some of Greece’s best beaches are just a short drive from the city center, and the nearby Saronic Islands are just a short hop away by “flying dolphin”.
We look forward to seeing you at the 23rd EAERE Conference in Athens!
