In March 2016 the Isle of Man became the first entire jurisdiction to gain international UNESCO Biosphere status.
This prestigious award shows how a thriving, diverse, modern economy can co-exist and complement a healthy ecosystem and community. The Biosphere status raises awareness among local people, visitors and Government on environmental and development issues, resulting in the enhancement and enrichment of people’s lives.
We appreciate our landscape and a Biosphere status applies across the whole of the Island from the land to the sea, covering; beaches, seas, plantations, forests and glens. We want the Isle of Man to stay as a special place to live, work and visit, where the community can come together to take care of its beautiful environment and to help educate local businesses and Government on how they can make a positive impact on the Island.
