Integrated Management Approaches and Sustainable Tourism Strategies
for Biosphere Reserves

Tepilora, Rio Posada and Montalbo future MaB UNESCO Biosphere Reserve
Sant’Anna di Lodè (NU) – Tepilora Regional Parck - Sardinia, Italy,

13-20 July 2017

The Summer School seeked to provide a one week intensive training about Integrated Management Approaches and Sustainable Tourism Strategies for Biosphere Reserves. It has t informed the participants about the successful procedures of preparing the nomination for the “Tepilora, Rio Posada and Montalbo” that is now (June 2017) part of the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Programme, MAB/UNESCO). Last but not least the Summer School highlighted the rich natural and cultural heritage of the new Biosphere Reserve and, generally of the island of Sardinia.

The 26 trainees comprised a mix of post-graduate students, young scientists and staff and managers of Biosphere Reserves (BRs). They came from Europe and mostly from South Europe and Mediterranean countries.

The Summer School included morning theoretic sessions, followed by a series of targeted visits and field work inside various 'hotspots' of the new BR “Tepilora, Rio Posada and Montalbo” BR, as well as afternoon group work. During the group work the participants intergrated their observations, and data collected from the field on order to propose a set of recommendations, for the newly established BR.

On behalf of MIO-ECSDE and MEdIES, Ms Iro Alampei and Mr Vassilis Psallidas have tutured two of the grouwork teams on education and management respectively, while prof. Scoullos delivered two presentations (over skype) on Integrated Management and on Education for Sustainable Development.
