The first phases of the conception of the WNMBR and its website counted with the active collaboration of the Chinese students Qin Ye, Yang Xinmiao and Zhang Xuanying.
The three Chinese students supported the work of the WNMBR in the framework of an educational collaboration agreement between the University of Santiago de Compostela and the Provincial Council of Lugo (Spain), which established a partnership with the Valles de Omaña y Luna Biosphere Reserve, technical secretariat of the WNMBR alongside the Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Their collaborative work focused on the design and elaboration of materials and gathering information on mountain biosphere reserves in the Arab States, Asia and the Pacific. They also contributed to the development of the Chinese version of the WNMBR website.
An online ceremony granted the students with a certificate for their collaboration, with the participation of several members of the two technical secretariats and with the Ancares Lucenses Biosphere Reserve.
