The international workshop “Crossroads Biodiversity – From a LIFE Integrated Project to a pan-Alpine biodiversity agenda” will take place on 10-11 October 2023 in Milan, Italy.
The workshop is being organised by Regione Lombardia and ERSAF (the Regional Agency for Agriculture and Forestry) in cooperation with the Alpine Biodiversity Board of the Alpine Convention and Action Groups 6 (natural resources) and 7 (connectivity, green infrastructure) of the European Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP).
This onsite event (with streaming of selected sessions) will offer an opportunity to exchange on the results of the LIFE Integrated Project Gestire 2020 and be a chance to advance the biodiversity agenda of the Alpine region according to the Multi-Annual Work Programme of the Alpine Convention and of EUSALP. The workshop is also a follow-up to the first international workshop held online by the Alpine Biodiversity Board on 17 April 2023, and will advance the discussion of biodiversity strategies that were started.
The objective of the workshop on 10-11 October 2023 is to share good practices and define ways to cooperate for biodiversity in the Alpine Macro Region, starting from the national experience of the project Gestire 2020 and taking its results to the Alpine level and embedding it into the European context, including the recent approval of the EU Nature Restoration Law.
