Euromontana invites you to its webinar “Smart mountains: how can biosphere reserves contribute to the Green Deal?”, taking place on January 14, 2021, from 14:00 to 15h45. This webinar, co-organised by Euromontana, the Perth College – University of the Highlands and Islands and UNESCO’s Man and the biosphere programme, will explore how mountain’s biospheres can contribute to sustainable development, to the Farm to Fork and to biodiversity conservation.
Euromontana will organise its XII European Mountain Convention on “Smart mountains: how to make our territories attractive and future-oriented?” in the Natural Park & UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Sila, Italy in September 2021. This 3-Day event will aim at defining a sustainable strategy for the development of smart mountains towards 2050.
In view of this event, Euromontana is organising a series of webinars to feed reflection and showcase good initiatives and contribute to foresight analysis for our collective future. The second webinar will address the key role played by the 254 biosphere reserves in Europe, including 121 in mountain areas, in promoting sustainable development. How do they encourage sustainable economic development while preserving biodiversity? How do they encourage sustainable food and agriculture?
