East Sicily river valleys (Etna area) are candidates for Unesco Biosphere Reserves (Man and Biosphere Programme) and CSS-Ebla, is invited to work at this candidacy.
This project was born thanks to the foundation Manfred-Hermsen-Stiftung for Nature Conservation and Environmental Protection in cooperation with Giacche Verdi di Bronte and Associazione Natour. The goal is to help Etna’s area be part of UNESCO. UNESCO created the MaB programme in order to improve the relationship between human beings and the environment, preserve biodiversity and promote all those activities that help the development of the territory, tourism and eco-friendly farming among the others.
