PEGASO, a four-year long ICZM project for the Mediterranean and the Black Sea funded by the FP7 Program of the European Union, is about to be concluded. This comprehensive project has been the collaborative work of 25 institutions located around the Mediterranean and the Black Sea basins and in other parts of Europe.


All colleagues interested in ICZM in general and ICZM in the Mediterranean and Black Sea countries in particular are cordially invited to participate at the Final General Meeting organised by the Mediterranean Coastal Foundation on behalf of the PEGASO Consortium during 14-17 January 2014 at Akka Antedon Hotel (*****, all-inclusive) in Beldibi / Antalya (Turkey). It is anticipated that many high level experts and managers from prominent coastal / marine organizations and institutions, past and ongoing initiatives will participate at the meeting in addition to the PEGASO researchers.


The draft technical program of the Meeting is already posted at the meeting website. The first day (14 January) is designed exclusively for the members of the collaborating institutions of the PEGASO consortium. The following two days (15 and 16 January) will be open to all invited and interested participants and will have discussion sessions about the state-of-art and the future of ICZM in the Mediterranean and Black Sea countries together with the developments achieved by the PEGASO project. The highlight of the meeting will be the discussions about the opportunities for collaboration and networking that will especially address bridging science and policy for ICZM in both basins.


A field trip will be organised the last day (17 January) for all participants to several sites along the south-western coast of Antalya Bay that are prime tourist destinations on one side and protected areas for their high ecological or archaeological values on the other.


Accommodation at the Meeting hotel (Akka Antedon Hotel) and free airport transfers on the dates of 13, 14 and 18 January 2014 can be booked on-line from this website.


We look forward to seeing you in Antalya in the New Year.


Best wishes for the holiday season and a Happy New Year!
