Menorca: beautiful island today, sustainable island tomorrow

Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities

Description

by Igor Taranic, Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), with contribution from Dr. Craig Lee Martin, TU Delft

In the last week of April I had the pleasure to participate in the CITY-ZEN Roadshow in Menorca, one of the Spanish Balearic islands. The event named “Menorca - a sustainable island vision” was the fifth roadshow developed by the CITY-ZEN project and led by Dr. Craig Lee Martin from TU Delft in the Netherlands. Previous roadshows took place in Amsterdam (the Netherlands), Belfast (UK), Izmir (Turkey) and Dubrovnik (Croatia). Menorca is a perfect place to combine a business trip and enjoy the  sun, sea, food and the Mediterranean warmth of the local people before the start of the touristic season. The island’s capital Mahon also has an interesting cultural mix of Spanish and Catalan languages, beautiful architecture and rich history.
