In July 2012 Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere was recognised internationally as a world class environment for people and nature. It was the first UNESCO Biosphere in Scotland and is part of a family of over 700 Biospheres around the world.

With our strong focus on sustainability; our commitment to facing up to the challenges of the climate emergency and biodiversity loss; and the opportunity to play a key role in supporting a post Covid “green recovery”, the UNESCO Biosphere designation is very much “of its time”.

Working with the Lead Officer for Communities and Education you’ll be supporting the development and delivery of programmes and projects related to rural development, community-based tourism, climate change, health and well-being through meaningful and engaging initiatives that will make life better for the people, the environment and the economy of our UNESCO Biosphere.

You’ll have a key role to play in the delivery of our Coalfield Communities Sense of Place project and we are particularly keen to see you help expand and grow the role of the Biosphere Communities initiative, that celebrates the individuality of our local communities and supports them on their journey to becoming ‘climate ready’.
