Partners: CDE
This project sought to raise public awareness regarding sustainable regional development and its interplay with nature conservation in the Swiss Alps. To this end, an educational resource kit on sustainable regional development – based on scientific evidence – was created and made available to all high school students in Switzerland. Swiss high school teachers and the Swiss UNESCO general secretary described the tool as highly valuable to the region and the school system. The tool is frequently downloaded from the website, which is an indicator of its usefulness.
