Learning & Research


There are plenty of opportunities to learn about the wonderful qualities of The Living Coast.
There are a number of resources and services in the Biosphere Region that support bringing you closer to nature and to learn what our rich environment has to offer.


  • The Brighton & Hove environmental education project (BHee) supports local schools to embed sustainability into all aspects of school life, and is supported by Brighton & Hove City Council.
  • ‘Our Water Matters’ is an innovative schools learning programme on our local water cycle that has been developed by The Living Coast to connect local school children to their unique environment, through a combination of virtual learning in the classroom and hands-on fun play and ecpertiments in outdoor green space



  • The Biosphere Research & Monitoring Strategy 2017-19 sets out the priorities and mechanisms for applied investigations to support our environmental management programme, as developed by the Biosphere Research & Monitoring working group
