The alumni club of the MSc programme "Management of Protected Areas" was founded on June 16, 2007. It serves as platform for the exchange of current and former students, the management, advisory board and lecturers of the programme. The alumni club aims to connect its members and support their professional carreers.
The alumni club is registered as an association in Klagenfurt, Austria. It is managed by an elected board consisting of alumnis and representatives of the University of Klagenfurt and E.C.O. Institute of Ecology, Klagenfurt.
It’s also open for acknowledged external protected area experts and organisations as well as supporters of the MSc programme or its alumni club. We exchange in personal meetings and via our project web-site.
If you would like to have further information on the alumni club or want to become a member or supporter, please have a look at our folder and our statutes or contact us directly.
