This was the 4th in a series of Summer Universities that have been previously organised by MIO-ECSDE, through MEdIES, on topics related to sustainable management of Protected Areas and Biosphere Reserves (BRs).

This year focus was on tourism and local products, within the framework of green growth and sustainable development. The Summer University took place in the area of Parnon-Maleas, in Peloponnese, Greece aiming to contribute in the preparation of the nomination dossier of the region to enter the World Network of Biosphere Reserve.

The Summer Univesity was atttended by more than 56 participants from 15 countries. They followed theoretic presentations, did a series of field visits in the Parnon area, and they were also engaged in intensive group work in three thematic areas: (A) Candidature of a BR ; (B) Education for Sustainable Development in a BR; and (C) Local products and Tourism. Furthermore, they had the opportunity to interact with the locals in two public events one designed as an open consultation and the other as a public event to announce their results. The three Working Groups of the Summer University came up with useful recommendations that will be used as input to the preparation of the nomination dossier of the region.

The Summer University was co-organised and supported by the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe (Venice Office); the Regional Development Company of Parnon; the Management Body of Parnon, Moustos, Mainalon and Monemvasia, the UNESCO Chair and Network of the University of Athens; the Greek National Committee of MAB/UNESCO, the Centre of Environmental Education (CEE) of Molaoi and the Mediterranean Universities Network for ESD (MedUnNET).
