Save the date for the MOVING EU MAP webinar | Protected natural sites: A constraint or an opportunity for mountain value chains?
October 5, 2023
MOVING will organise its third European Multi-Actor Platform (EU MAP) webinar on 5 October 2023, from 10 AM-12:30 AM (CET). The topic of the event will be focused on the constraints and opportunities of protected natural sites for mountain value chains.
In 2022, the EU MAP within the MOVING project carried out a study to investigate how the presence of protected natural sites affects value chains across its 23 mountain regions. 43.5% of MOVING Regions said that protected natural sites are somehow a constraint to mountain value chains as they harshen regulations on business activity and prevention, land and resource use as well as restrict tourism and visitor management. Nonetheless, the far majority of respondents (82.6%) also said that the presence of natural areas is an opportunity as it brings economic, environmental, and social benefits.
The aim of this webinar is to investigate and exchange the barriers and opportunities linked to the presence of natural sites in mountain areas, its implications for mountain value chains, and good practices to reconcile the development of mountain value chains with environmental protection and community well-being. This webinar will take stock of the International Year of Sustainable Mountain Development (2022), the World Network of Mountain Biosphere Reserves of UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere Programme as well as the MOVING Cluster on nature and ecosystem services. The discussion will be framed in line with the latest progress on the EU’s biodiversity Strategy and particularly the Nature Restoration Law.

ESEE 2022 Conference Pisa
June 13, 2022
In June 2022 will take place the Pisa 2022 14th International Conference of European Society for Ecological Economics (ESEE).
Multi-Actor Platforms / Living Labs are increasingly considered by innovation policies as drivers of transformative change. Indeed, the interaction between stakeholders is supposed to generate innovation adapted to the needs of users and their context and to promote inclusion.
DESIRA, MOVING and SHERPA H2020 projects organise a special session in the ESEE 2022 Congress about Living Labs & Multi-Actor Platforms in rural areas: conceptualisation & case studies. It will be an opportunity to share experiences in this field and to reflect on how to consolidate methods and concepts around this approach.
