The second edition of the “International Academy on Sustainable Development” takes place in Turin from December 1 to 6. It’s a capacity building program designed and implemented by the Study Centre Silvia Santagata – Ebla (CSS-Ebla) and the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe (UNESCO Venice Office). It is addressed to site managers of territories with a UNESCO designation. The second edition of the Academy focuses on the following UNESCO designations: World Heritage, Man and the Biosphere and Creative Cities. The first edition was attended by 42 site managers from 25 countries.

This program, the only one in the world to take this approach, aims to link different experiences in the international context and build a global community of good practices. The 2016 edition focuses particularly on territories with more than one UNESCO Recommendation, and it focuses as well on debating governance topics, territorial branding, fund raising and promoting tourism. The city of Turin, with its three different designations, is taken as case study and classes take place at the UNITED NATIONS Campus, managed by the International Labour Organization (ILO).
