Community picnics to encourage sustainability
Biosphere Bee Community Picnic 2022 logo
Unesco Biosphere Isle of Man wants people to take part in a series of island-wide picnics next year.
The Biosphere Bee Community Picnic 2022 will run from April to September and it’s hoped that charities, neighbourhoods, schools, community groups and businesses will take part.
Groups will be able to plan their own picnic to connect people with nature, promote local produce and bring together communities, using resources provided by Unesco Biosphere Isle of Man, an organisation that promotes the island’s natural assets.
Events can be registered through its website from September 2021.
Organisers will then receive digital resources to help plan and advertise their event.
Organisers will also receive guidance surrounding sustainability and Biosphere values, local produce, getting permissions to use land and keeping people safe to refer to during the planning of their Biosphere Bee Community Picnic.
Minister for Environment, Food and Agriculture Geoffrey Boot said: ’We have a particularly strong sense of community in our Biosphere and rebuilding connections with old friends and making new friends is really important after Covid lockdowns.
’Picnics will also connect people with nature and the outdoors in our beautiful Biosphere and promote and celebrate local produce.
Mr Boot added: ’The creative aspect of planning a picnic will be appealing to many and we look forward to all of the imaginative ways people celebrate Biosphere Bee in 2022.
’We hope we’ll see a blanket of Biosphere Bee community picnics across the island next year.’
