GLOBAL LIVE MED: A day of Music and Dialogue for the Mediterranean |

Three of the main Sustainable Development goals set by the United Nations highlight the first Global Live Med, which will take place on October 8 in Athens in collaboration with Flux Laboratory Athens, with the aim of promoting peace, cooperation and sustainable development in the Mediterranean countries.

It is an experimental initiative that, through discussions and musical events, seeks to become a bridge of cultural dialogue and an institution that will act as a catalyst for peace and cooperation in the Mediterranean. The vision of the organizers is for Greece to become the official hosting hub for representatives from the Mediterranean countries who will be able to contribute positively to addressing the pressing issues of the climate crisis, peace and cooperation and to the promotion of glocal development.
