An Invitation to Share

on 15 August 2010 - 1:00pm

The Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB), proposes an interdisciplinary research agenda and capacity building aiming to improve the relationship of people with their environment globally. Launched in the early 1970s, it notably targets the ecological, social and economic dimensions of biodiversity loss and the reduction of this loss. It uses its World Network of Biosphere Reserves as vehicles for knowledge-sharing, research and monitoring, education and training, and participatory decision-making.


The following is from the noosa Biosphere in Queensland Australia. A UNESCO Biosphere promoting harmony between people and nature through education, conservation and sustainable activities.




Human Activity: Culture, Life and Community


There is a whole other side to the biosphere reserve, and that is how us humans interact with the environment. Our strong community values have delivered biosphere status and will continue to support our activities.  Let’s celebrate our achievements, help our neighbours, educate each other and continue to provide a solid base from which to prosper and improve our diverse community.


Noosa Federation of Arts presents: "Biosphere. An invitation to share"


"The film was produced as a template to visually communicate with and show other Biospheres how man nurtures nature and nature nurtures man - how man and the biosphere can live in harmony to support each other, and posing the question for the future, "why wouldn't it be possible for Science and the Arts to work together to produce a better world for the future" - Meg Lawrence
