Biosphere reserve activities are based on collaboration and working together towards more sustainable future.

In practice, activities take place through cross-sectoral collaboration, sustainable development partnership network and project work.

Biosphere reserve promotes sustainable development through various development projects.


Partners of the sustainable development partnership network, including many North Karelian businesses and associations, already implement sustainable development in their daily practices. Through the network these partners can share good practice examples and get support on how to become more sustainable.


Biosphere reserve collaborates with municipalities and educational institutions of the region.
