Jo Overty, UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man Project Officer, said: ‘The way we lived our lives in the past and the traditions and cultures we observed very much shapes us now.

‘One of the roles of Biospheres is to promote and preserve our culture and heritage.

‘This promises to be a fascinating webinar and, as we grow our friendships with our neighbours in the Irish Biospheres, I hope people will attend.’

The year-long webinar series marks the 50th anniversary of the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Programme.
