A biosphere reserve is a place selected by UNESCO to be part of their program created in 1971 “Man and Biosphere (MAB)”.
It promotes ecological diversity and associates cultural values by involving local populations and adopting an appropriate scientific approach. Biosphere reserves are all linked by a global network. They are coworking places to raise awareness, exchange knowledge, experiment, and research. They contribute to the implementation of The United Nation’s sustainable development goals set for 2030.
