"Sustainability is more than preservation" – Arab-European Dialogue Forum discusses questions regarding "Energy and Sustainable Development"

Once again the Tunisian capital became the center of liberal discussion and attention as liberal politicians and scholars from Austria, Egypt, Germany, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, the Netherlands, Palestine, Sweden, Slovenia and Tunisia were invited to the 3rd "Bridging the Gap" conference, in order to bridge the geographical gap of the Mediterranean by means of an informed dialogue. This annual conference was organized by the Regional office of the Friedrich-Naumann-Foundation for Liberty (FNF) in Cairo, the Dutch People's Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVP) and the Tunisian Hannibal Strategic Institute.

While the first two dialogue forums in the past two years in Cairo focused on the fundamental questions of Liberalism and his organizational forms, the participants in Tunis concentrated this time on a rather specific policy area, which affects both sides of the Mediterranean: "The dilemma of the need for more energy on one side and the ensuring of a sustainable development on the other side", as FNF's Regional Director Dr. René Klaff put it in his opening speech.
