First Meeting of the GT-PSRB in Porto Santo – december 2017

 

From January to February 2018, various participatory sessions were held with representatives from various sectors of the island, namely tourism, education, transport, culture, religion and traditions, in which 50 people actively participated. They learned about the concept of a Biosphere Reserve and contributed with suggestions which enabled the work group to evaluate the reference situation and define the starting point for this application. Meetings were held for presentation and analysis of the zonation as well as other relevant aspects regarding the management of the Reserve, between January and April 2018, prior to the first presentation and public consultation of the application form, between 12th April and 2nd May 2018.
