Programme

UNESCO biosphere reserves are great examples of sustainable development in action. Our World Network brings together a diverse range of stakeholders, at different scales (from local to global), to transform our world into a more resilient and sustainable place to live in every day.

Inspiring a positive future by connecting people and nature today

The EuroMAB 2019 Conference in Dublin Bay Biosphere will focus on how communications and networking between biospheres can be enhanced, and how biospheres can best partner with stakeholders and institutions to address global issues with local actions.

We invite you to join us by bringing your energy and ideas to participate in collaborative working sessions around three key topics:

With ten workshops and six fieldtrips to choose from, this 4-day conference is specifically tailored to assist participants in taking local actions for global challenges.
