Land Stewardship Stoa: Marketplace and Networking

Stoa is a roofed colonnade typical in the ancient Greek architecture. These spaces were open to the public and aimed to facilitate meetings especially during raining or warming days. Stoas turned into a permanent exhibition space where people met to share products, artwork and philosophical ideas.

Based on the Stoa concept, the Congress offers a specific space for share ideas and knowledge, present projects and new initiatives and, in definitive, to facilitate and promote networking between the organisations and persons participants in the Congress.

The Land Stewardship Stoa offers open networking and conversations with other participants and also roundtables to discuss about specific topics.
