The Park is part of something biggerThe designated MaB UNESCO area extends far beyond the boundaries of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennine National Park. For this reason, it is important for us to create a unified brand and a shared vision for the future that seemlessly links the 34 diverse municipalities of the reserve.
Together, we believe that people's quality of life and the health and diversity of nature are inextricably linked. People are a part of their environments which have in turn been shaped by local cultures. So we find ways to celebrate and advance culture, nature and economy together.
We are a movement of people building a future that we can trust. We know that people are most powerful when they are informed, inspired, and have the tools to make change happen. The only way to build a future that is self-sufficient, secure and happy is to help people believe it is possible, and help them to make it happen.
We explore new ways of living everyday that solve global challenges. Our solutions are built on a strong scientific foundation and understanding of local cultures, traditions and ecology, which we translate it into actions everyday. This allows us to make the most of local expertise, and live in a way that tackles global challenges. By doing this, we model the future we want to see.
Our success depends on the strength of the relationships we create. It's these powerful connections that mean we can achieve outcomes together that we could not achieve alone and be part of something bigger. Connecting people across disciplines, cultures and borders. Reconnecting people to each other, and to nature. Connecting the values and heritage from our past with hopes we have for our future.
We are incredibly grateful for local organizations such as Reggio Children, Consortiums of Parmigiano Reggiano and Prosciutto di Parma, the G.A.L. Antico Frignano E App.Reggiano, the Association Toscani in the World, and City Network Slow who continue to support our goals to unify local communiities and to improve man's relationship with nature.
