UNESCO, PAM LAUNCH NEW CHAIR AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TURIN - ITALY
On the occasion of the Conference “Beyond North-South for a sustainable development and a new Mediterranean Renaissance” held at the Royal Palace of Venaria near Turin (Italy) on 26-27 November 2011, UNESCO and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean, have announced the setting up of a new Chair at the University of Turin. The initiative is aimed at facilitating, through summer school projects, the training of public officials in order to promote better governance in the sustainable development of the region.
 
The conference organised by UNESCO, PAM, the University of Turin and the La Venaria Reale Consortium, was attended by a PAM high level delegation made up of PAM Vice President, Senator Francesco Maria Amoruso (Italy), and the Secretary General, Dr. Sergio Piazzi.
 
Sen. Amoruso underlined the long established relations between UNESCO and PAM, which strongly contribute to the building of a more stable, prosperous and united Mediterranean region. With reference to the role of education in the process of economic and social development, PAM Secretary General, Dr.
Piazzi, reminded that within the PAM Panel on External Trade and Investments in the Mediterranean, the Assembly will dedicate in 2012 particular attention to the educational sector, and will be also organising a conference  to discuss issues related to this area, including professional training in the Mediterranean countries, aimed at improving the opportunities for commercial and cultural exchanges in the region.
 
“PAM plays a fundamental role in the region’s development and that of its young generations, who represent the future, and therefore they deserve all our commitment”, concluded Dr. Piazzi.
