In July 2012 Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere was recognised internationally as a world class environment for people and nature. It was the first UNESCO Biosphere in Scotland and is part of a family of over 700 Biospheres around the world.

With our strong focus on sustainability; our commitment to facing up to the challenges of the climate emergency and biodiversity crisis; and the opportunity to play a key role in supporting a post Covid “green recovery”, the UNESCO Biosphere designation is very much “of its time”.

Our UNESCO Biosphere is just entering an exciting period of sustained growth both in staff numbers and initiatives that support our local communities, businesses, and land managers in delivering the sustainability ethos of the Biosphere.

It is an opportunity to get involved at a new beginning, and to play a role in engaging with and supporting businesses towards a more sustainable future.

There are a host of opportunities and partners that are waiting to work with us in supporting, developing and delivering a range of initiatives that will really demonstrate the international significance of our UNESCO Biosphere.
