BERLIN ROLL-UP BANNER
[CROSSDEV] Local Community of the Biosphere
Two years after the founding of the Association for the Protection of Jabal Moussa (APJM), Jabal Moussa and surrounding villages were designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2009 under the Man and Biosphere (MAB) Programme.
The MAB Programme inspired APJM to move from the classical approach to conservation, excluding people from the protected area, to a human-centered approach, inclusive of local communities.
BERLIN first newsletter
Discover the pilot sites of BERLIN Project: Site #1 – University of Cyprus
The BERLIN project aims at the implementation of cross border pilots that will support innovative and cost-effective energy rehabilitation in public buildings based on the nanogrid concept. Thus, BERLIN project focuses on the increase of photovoltaics (PV) penetration, which coupled with energy storage and demand-side management (DSM) will increase the energy efficiency (EE) of the buildings.
COMMON project: smart working to protect our seas
Due to the COVID19 pandemic, COMMON project is reducing its activity, postponing all events and adopting teleworking as a general measure.
As declared by Union for the Mediterranean, "the unprecedented situation created by the rapid spread of COVID-19 disease around the world, reminds us that global threats know no borders. Despite this, the collective response of our citizens has shown we possess tools of great power, more important than ever: resilience and solidarity".
