Regional contact persons available to support your application


Previous participants from different European regions are on disposal for first-hand information on the programme


There are only two months left until the application period for the MPA Programme expires on 30 June 2014. Please use the remaining weeks in order to inform your colleagues and friends about the unique chances provided by this extraordinary academic training which teaches profound interdisciplinary knowledge on the broad and demanding field of protected areas management. Detailed information on the application process can be derived from the programmes homepage.

You may also wish to check our brand new facebook page. Feel free to “like” us on facebook and share the information and discussions within your social network.

In case you would like to discuss some open questions individually with people who really know, what´s going on, you are invited to get in touch with our “regional contact persons”. They provide first-hand information, because all of them participated in the training course themselves – so they really know what they are talking about! During a period of two years, they have gone through all ups and downs of this international programme. They have experienced, how demanding an extra-occupational training can be, but they also can tell you about their personal benefits gained out of this programme which in many respects is worth the effort! Get known to our regional contact persons for the Germany speaking countries, for the Balkan Peninsula, and for the Baltic States. You may also get in contact with the alumni club of the programme for first-hand information from a participants´ perspective.

Apply now for the MSc programme "Management of Protected Areas" which will start on 23 September 2014, and join our network of people who intend to shape the planet's future!

Best wishes from Klagenfurt, Michael Jungmeier
