Dr. Beata Dreksler and Ecosystem Management graduate student Sabrina Ulmasova participated in the MEPROLAND seminar in Ajloun Forest Reserve (Jordan, March 9 - 13, 2022).

During the seminar, several focus group meetings were conducted to better understand a socio-cultural and economic situation of the communities of Irjan and Rasun, Ajloun Governorate. Participants discussed current issues and challenges with Women Associations, tourism operators and farmers from the area. The seminar was the next step in activating local community's stakeholders following the Living Lab concept.
