What are COVID-19 pandemic effects on Biosphere Reserves and Global Geoparks’ activities? What are the impacts on the territories, institutional organizations and economic activities? What are the resilience solutions adopted as a response to this difficult period?
To investigate these aspects, the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe, based in Venice, has developed a project aimed at offering a platform of knowledge and exchange that gives voice to the experiences of the different sites, primarily involving the coordinators of the sites themselves and local stakeholders, but also open to anyone interested in the topics.
After a first phase of investigation, which involved mainly site managers and the main stakeholders, a webinar series will be held with thematic focus (in Italian).
The online meetings, organized in a weekly appointment every Thursday for 3 weeks in April from 4pm to 6pm, will be held on the GoToWebinar platform, open to all participants subscribed to the links below:

The objective is to voice experiences, share and implement the creative solutions of resilience identified in response to the current pandemic. This activity will also contribute to strengthening the collaboration among the UNESCO sites and with their stakeholders, inspiring the identification of solutions contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, strengthening the potential of UNESCO sites as sustainability laboratories and facilitating the dissemination of good practices developed in them.
