Celebrate People and Nature - Biosphere Nomination for the Sunshine Coast

Sunshine Coast Council is leading a nomination for the local government area to become a UNESCO Biosphere. A biosphere is a special place. It's where responsible development and people living sustainably sits alongside active conservation - just like our region.

Becoming a biosphere would further enhance the Sunshine Coast’s national and international reputation.

It can create niche markets for products, services, facilities and practices. This is significant for the agricultural, forestry, fisheries and tourism sectors. It will assist businesses to grow while attracting more investment to our region. That means more jobs for local people.

Sunshine Coast Council has a clear vision for what we’re hoping to achieve for our region. A UNESCO Biosphere credential will support us to maintain and enhance our economy, lifestyle and environment for future generations. It aligns with our vision to be Australia’s most sustainable region - healthy, smart, creative.


Expressions of interest to join the Community Reference Group - NOW CLOSED

A key aspect of community engagement for the proposed Sunshine Coast UNESCO Biosphere is to create a Community Reference Group (CRG) that will advise council on the nomination. The CRG will include people from a range of interest areas across the Sunshine Coast, so that it is representative and inclusive of our broad community. Expressions of interest to join the Community Reference Group closed on the 25 June. If you would like know more about the role of the CRG click on the link below:
