This summer, we were delighted and incredibly proud to receive His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales in North Devon. During the visit at Tennacott Farm, The Prince attended the Biosphere Natural Capital Seminar and met with members of the BioCultural Heritage Tourism team and partners.
We are delighted to announce that our third virtual conference and study tour hosted by The living Coast will take place on March 16th-18th, 2021. It will be a great opportunity to talk about strategic planning for sustainable tourism, developing networks and new tourism experiences linked to the local environment, culture and heritage.
We are pleased to announce that our partner, Braunton Countryside Centre, is organising some very interesting talks over the winter as part of BCHT about a lovely part of the North Devon Biosphere.

The second BioCultural Heritage Tourism seminar took place from 30th September to 2nd October 2019 on the islands of Ushant and Molène, in the heart of the Islands and Iroise Sea Biosphere Reserve.
More than 60 participants were able to discover the Interreg BCHT project, its progress and participate in workshops.
It was also an opportunity for tourism professionals to exchange and learn about this Biosphere Reserve designated by UNESCO on field trips in Ushant and Molène.

BCHT teams were present at the EuroMAB conference 2019 from 1st to 5th April. It was the first opportunity to present the project to our sister Biospheres.
During some of the morning workshops we discussed climate change monitoring and adaptation, strengthening the status of Biosphere Reserves within EU Policy & Legislation, how Biospheres can contribute to, and be test sites for best practice in EU and International Policy, and to deliver common objectives particularly around social cohesion and regional development. Another topic was Biosphere lansdscapes as resources for human health and well-being and developing and promoting these ecosystem services within Biospheres.
In the afternoon, we enjoyed a field trip to visit Bull Island where we took part in a seashell identification task, a regular event with tourists.
From 18 to 20 December 2018, the BCHT partners met in Saint-Omer. The opportunity for partners to present the project to Delta FM:
