20/04/2017 to 19/05/2017 – Photographic exhibition "Miradas al Mar" by Daniel Montero Vítores and Alex Martín Ros.


The Canarian Forum of Coastal Management (FORO CANACOSTA) was born in 2006 as a joint initiative of the now extinct Canary Islands Institute of Marine Sciences (Government of the Canary Islands) and the Center for Research in Biodiversity and Environmental Management (University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria , ULPGC). Through participation in the CoPraNet projects - The Coastal Practice Network (2004 and 2006) and SUSTAIN (2010 and 2012), the first steps to the creation of the Canacosta Forum were taken, with the development of thematic sessions of the forum and the implementation in progress of the Canacosta Bulletin.
