This educational resource developed in 2013 as a training material for ESD educators, formal and non-formal, involved in implementing awareness raising programmes in designated areas such as Protected Areas (PAs), Environment Centres, Nature Parks, Eco-museums, etc.  and particularly, in MAB Biosphere Reserves (BRs). The material attempts to make a meaningful and substantial link between the educational process that is taking place in Biosphere Reserves and other protected or designated areas, and their “protection” as such, using as a vehicle “Education for Sustainable Development” (ESD).  This was a joint publication of MEdIES and UNESCO.
