The training modules will be conducted at the International Academy for Nature Conservation (INA) Isle of Vilm of the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN). Part of the Southeast Ruegen Biosphere Reserve, the 94 ha island is not only of exceptional natural beauty, but also an ideal venue for concentrated course work. While the Isle of Vilm is an example of successful efforts to conserve natural resources since as early as 1812, the facilities are also fully equipped to meet today's demands of study. Accommodation is provided in nine guesthouses which have internet access. Given the remote location, all meals are provided by the academy's canteen.

The academy has an outstanding reputation for conducting training and expert workshops on a wide range of conservation topics, with a particular focus on Eurasia. The academy will support participants with the logistical organisations for their travel to the training venue.
