  The Appennino Tosco-Emiliano MaB Reserve presents the 70 Activities of the new Action Plan.

The Biosphere Reserve MaB Appennino Tosco-Emiliano will present tomorrow, 19th February 2020, at the University of Parma, the new Action Plan for the sustainable development of the territory of the MaB.

The Action Plan pursues sustainable development objectives, both those specific to the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines and the general ones indicated by the international community (17 UN Sustainable Development Goals - Agenda 2030) and recalled by the Lima Plan (March 2016) of the UNESCO MaB Programme.

The Action Plan involves all 34 Municipalities in the territory of the MaB (divided between the Regions of Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna and in particular between the Provinces of Reggio Emilia, Parma, Modena, Lucca and Massa) and is composed of 70 Actions, grouped according to the following areas of intervention: Education, Research & Development, Cultural Heritage, Environment, Rurality, Tourism, Communication, Involvement.

The complete list of the forms can be consulted at:

Within the field of tourism development, some of the activities provided for in the Action Plan originate from the ECST (European Charter of Sustainable Tourism) and the CEETO Project, developed in recent years by the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines National Park Authority in collaboration with the Emilia-Romagna Region.

Fausto Giovanelli, President of the National Park and coordinator of MaB, will talk about the Action Plan of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines Biosphere Reserve and its 70 projects, while the Park Director, Giuseppe Vignali, will deal with the theme of the future of the Reserve. The meeting will conclude with the presentation of the new 'I Care Appennino' awards assigned to those realities, associations and companies that realize or support projects and initiatives whose aim is to take care of the territory, biodiversity and communities.

The official MaB magazine "Apenninus" (only in Italian language), dedicates to the event the special n°20/2020, available at the following link:

Abbiamo preso parte dall'inizio al processo MaB. Dopo 5 anni, al tempo del Covid 19, ci stiamo interrogando su quanto la Riserva MaB abbia influito sullo sviluppo delle relazioni sociali nel territorio. Nel video una prima riflessione.
