Charging Up for the UN Conference on Man and the Biosphere
Maria, Johanna and Ove are arranging the conference and fair
Tomorrow it is finally time to start up the EuroMAB 2011 conference, a Man and the Biosphere conference with North American and European participants.
I have earlier briefly presented what a Biosphere Reserve is:
On the first day of the conference, there will be key note speeches by Meriem Boumrane from Unesco and Eva Smith from the Swedish EPA, amongts others. On Tuesday and Wednesday, focus is on workshop. I am myself mostly interested in the workshops covering biodiversity, social entrepreneurship, ecotourism and food production.
On Thursday, the public is invited to participate in the "BiosFAIR" a fair with 25 exhibitors, mainly presenting biosphere reserves. There will also be a number of seminars.
I hope we will be able to present a good coverage of the conference here at Ecoprofile!
See you tomorrow Johan. I am here representing the newest biosphere reserve in Sweden - Blekinge Arkipelag (the Blekinge Coast and Archipelago) - appointed by UNESCO a few days ago after a 6 year long process!
Here are all 18 new biosphere reserve listed and briefly described:
