UNESCO has declared November 3rd as the first International Day for Biosphere Reserves.
Biospheres promote sustainable development, conservation and learning.
There is no theme for this first celebration of Biosphere status and what it can bring to an area.
UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man will join fellow UK and Ireland Biospheres in celebrating with a week of storytelling around the people of our Biosphere and their contributions to it.
We will feature our own Environment Minister, a farmer, an artist, a scientist, a cultural expert, a museum curator and many more.
Look out for their stories on our website and on our social media channels and if you would like to take part and be featured, email us at Biosphere@gov.im
And please look out for the great stories coming from Brighton and Lewes Downs, Dublin Bay, Dyfi, Galloway and Southern Ayrshire, Kerry, Isle of Wight, North Devon and Wester Ross Biospheres, which we will share.
