The workshop will be held at the Centre IGESA, on the Island of Porquerolles, Hyères, France. This is one of a three-island group directly to the South of Hyères, and South East of Marseille. The Centre IGESA is in the village of the island of Porquerolles, 5 min by foot from the port. It is located in a natural park, one of the last intact naturalistic area in the Mediterranean basin. It belongs to the armed forces of France as a recreation and meeting location.
