There’s advice on how to make the most of our heritage in a sustainable and positive way, and free marketing assets to help you attract different customers to the region and improve the visitor experience. With the growing demand for sustainable, immersive experiences that bring people closer to nature, there’s never been a better time to put the values of the biosphere at the heart of what you do.

Toolkit for tourism businesses

What is a biosphere? What opportunities are there for your business in a biosphere? How can you develop new experiences that support positive futures for people and nature in the region? How can you build on your strengths to make the most of the natural assets in the region?

Our Toolkit for Tourism Businesses in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve considers these questions and looks at how you can  grow a tourism-based business within the biosphere. This toolkit was developed as part of the EU Interreg-funded BioCultural Heritage Tourism Project.
