Czech and German students and staff from Charles University and Leuphana University of Lueneburg presented their findings from a sustainable development summer school dedicated to understanding stakeholder dynamics in the Ore Mountains and Most region in the town of Litvinov on 7 September 2012.

From February to March 2014, four project regional meetings were organised in four regional European hubs that gathered partners from each region to initiate a new international project as a follow-up to the network connections made as part of the MOSUR project. This is University Educators for Sustainable Development (UE4SD), in which the Charles University Environment Center coordinates the Eastern European hub. The first such hub meeting took place in Prague on 2 & 3 February. The purpose of these meetings was to share management and administration issues as well as discuss the first phase of the project which involves each member country mapping its existing professional development opportunities for university educators. Project partners will map national and institutional initiatives, schemes and activities in this area. This data will inform four regional reports and one state of the art report which will be shared at the project annual meeting and COPERNICUS Alliance Conference which will take place from 2-3 October 2014 in Prague, Czech Republic.
A final project meeting of the MOSUR partners took place in the historic administration building of Charles University on 29 April 2014. During the afternoon session of the meeting, members of the public had an opportunity to hear about the most interesting project outputs from individual partner organisations. At the conclusion of the meeting, a discussion took place on the options for continuing cooperation among academic institutions with other social actors from the non-profit and private sectors.
Fifteen representatives of 8 partner organisations took part in the final meeting (the Charles University Environment Center, the University of South Bohemia, the Biology Centre of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Masaryk University, the Business Leaders Forum, Veronica Ecological Institute, the University of Finance and Administration, and Green Circle). The public session in the afternoon was introduced by Charles University Environment Center director Prof. RNDr. Bedřich Moldan, CSc. and apart from the project partners, several other interested parties from the public also participated.
