UNESCO visits The Living Coast

10 July 2023

We were proud to showcase our unique urban biosphere to a delegation from UNESCO in July. We showed how their funding is extending our work on protecting our fresh groundwater and natural flood solutions, as well as Environmental Education which is at the heart of our work, connecting people and nature in local schools and communities.

The delegation had a warm welcome at One Garden at Stanmer Park, where they learned about the restoration and sustainability values of this beautiful walled garden open to the public in the heart of our UNESCO Biosphere.

We were excited to find out more from UNESCO about the work of other biospheres – as a coastal biosphere, the best practice of the marine litter project in Asterousia Mountain Range Biosphere Reserve in Greece is of special interest!

With 2024 marking the 10-year anniversary of the designation, The Living Coast is planning for the next decade.
