This same global program, Summer Field School on Mountain Ecosystems & Resource Management (FSc MER 2021), was organized successfully in September 2021 with the partnership and collaboration of 66 universities, institutes, national parks, and organizations from 21 countries. Nearly 630 people from 69 countries took part in this 10-days event.

This international training program examines the mountain ecosystems in contexts of human development and natural resources, principles of managing natural resources, and governing the resources for sustainable conservation. Depicting on case studies from a wide range of the current natural resources across the globe, the program considers how different social, political, economic and cultural and gender aspects compete for and sustain the natural resources in mountain ecosystems. The program also examines how environmental activists and their interventions conserved parks, energy, water and land in the face of climate variability basing on a gender perspective. The program will consider how the current international and development system elaborates and processes to sustainably manage the available natural resources in mountain landscapes.
