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. If you are interested, please feel free to drop us an email.
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.
