Workshop series European biosphere reserves

Ecological situation and the sustainable economy

From 2019 to 2021 the Succow Foundation organises three workshops about current issues of the ecological situation and the sustainable economy in European UNESCO Biosphere Reserves. Manager and employees of biosphere reserves in Europe will come together to strengthen their network within the UNESCO Man and Biosphere Program (MAB). The aim of the project is to support the implementation of the MAB strategy 2015-2025 and the Lima Action Plan of the UNESCO-MAB-Program in Europe and to facilitate an exchange and network of the European Biosphere Reserves about common topics. In three interactive workshops local challenges on ecological problems in European biosphere reserves are discussed and concrete recommendations for action as well as methods and approaches are to be developed.

In three interactive workshops, the local challenges of ecological problems in the European biosphere reserves are discussed on specific topics and concrete recommendations for action and methods are jointly developed in group discussions. The first meeting on the subject of insect protection took place in November 2019 in the Berchtesgadener Land biosphere region. This highly topical subject was discussed in terms of the biosphere reserves' possibilities for insect protection. For example, the possibilities of influencing land use change towards near-natural agriculture, forestry and water management, as well as the participation of the population in municipal insect protection campaigns. Registrations for participation in the conference should be sent to renee.moreaux[at]succow-stiftung.de.

 

The workshop series is organised for the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). It is implemented together with the Verein Nationale Naturlandschaften.
