GOOD TO KNOW

A Biosphere Reserve works for a sustainable society and rich nature which future generations can be proud of. The Archipelago Sea’s Biosphere Reserve works together with local communities, entrepreneurs, researchers, authorities and various organisations to develop sustainable models of living and working in the archipelago. The goals are a positive development in the archipelago and a clean sea. The Biosphere Reserve is an active partner in local communities. Schoolchildren learn about valuable local environments and learn the importance of preserving them. The Biosphere Reserve is one of the main actors in the Korpoström Archipelago Centre alongside Åbo Academy’s Archipelago Institute and the Archipelago Foundation. Cooperation with the Archipelago Foundation has resulted in the Brännskär living archipelago community where two families with young children live.
The island of Brännskär lies in Nagu’s southern archipelago and is a popular harbour for pleasure boats. Visitors have the possibility to buy locally produced food in many parts of the archipelago. The development of artisan foods is a result of cooperation between many organisations in the archipelago biosphere reserve area. The Archipelago Sea Biosphere Reserve supports small-scale tourism where you can enjoy locally produced and authentic experiences in a clean environment.
