Thanks to the uniquely diverse natural settings and its rich cultural heritage, Vänerskärgården and Kinnekulle have been named a biosphere by the UN organ Unesco. This means that together with our neighbouring municipalities Götene and Mariestad, we have a model area where nature and culture are preserved. Together with the trade and industry we develop in a long-term, sustainable manner. We are more than a bit proud!
The purpose of A biosphere
A biosphere has three purposes: to develop the community in a long-term, sustainable manner, to preserve biological and cultural diversity, the ecosystem and the countryside, and to support model projects, research and to safeguard the environment. www.vanerkulle.se
