Are you a junior officer in a Biosphere Reserve (BR) of the MAB/UNESCO programme of a European or Mediterranean country?

Or, have you recently graduated from a relevant university discipline and wish to be further trained on Integrated Management Approaches within a BR?

Would you like to gain from the experience of a newly established BR in Sardinia?

Then the Summer School on ‘Integrated Management Approaches and Sustainable Tourism Strategies for Biosphere Reserves’, organized in Sardinia, from 13 to 20 July 2017, maybe of interest to you!

The Summer School provides an intensive, multidisciplinary and experiential training aiming to develop the understanding and competences of the trainees on the multiple values of the Biosphere Reserves as ‘laboratories’ and ‘catalysts’ of Sustainable Development. It specifically aims to deepen the understanding and offer insights on the integrated management approaches and sustainable tourism strategies for Biosphere Reserves and/or other types of designated areas (protected areas, natural parks, etc.).

The Summer School is co-organized by the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe; the UNESCO Chair and Network on Sustainable Development Management and Education in the Mediterranean of the University of Athens; MIO-ECSDE and especially its Educational Initiative MEdIES; and the Tepilora, Rio Posada and Montalbo Biosphere Reserve and the Tepilora Regional Park.
