First Ever Biosphere Festival Announced For Isle Of Wight

The inaugural Isle of WIght Biosphere Festival is to be held in June.

The fun weekend of events all over the Island, organisers are offering a chance for local businesses, organisations and communities to celebrate the unique combination of people and nature on these shores.

Since the Isle of Wight won UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status in 2019, there have been Biosphere projects in schools and communities, but June 29 and 30 will provide the opportunity for the island to get together as a whole to celebrate it.

The Biosphere Festival will include a weekend of talks and workshops at the Quay Arts -  a mix of practical learning, family fun and exciting and novel explorations of what the Biosphere is all about.

A spokesperson for the event said:

"We are asking local communities, organisations and businesses to join us in putting on their own events, however large or small, under the Biosphere Festival banner.

"These could be something already planned that you give a Biosphere theme, or something entirely new.

"The sole criteria is it need to fit one or more of the nine Biosphere principles in some way, which can be found on the Isle of Wight Biosphere website "

The Biosphere Festival team will provide support in developing ideas and promoting events, with online briefing events in advance and a resource pack available via the official website.

Further information is available via the Biosphere Festival page.
