Brighton and Lewes Downs Unesco Biosphere

Brighton and Lewes Downs are now a UNESCO World Biosphere site!
(and Ditchling is included)

We learnt yesterday from UNESCO that we have achieved our aim of the Brighton & Lewes Downs area being internationally recognised for:

  • our high-quality environment
  • everyone’s work to look after it
  • our future ambitions to make it even better for people and nature

We are the first completely new World Biosphere site established in the UK for almost 40 years, the first ever in south-east England, and one of only a handful worldwide to include a city.
