Led by our Director, Biosphere officers work cooperatively across three main workstreams that connect and overlap:
Land Use & Biodiversity – supporting the wildlife and habitats of the Biosphere through engagement with land managers and members of the farming community, and by working with partner organisations to develop innovative, nature-friendly approaches to land use.
Business Development – supporting sustainable business development through our Proud Supporter and Certification programme, and the hosting of workshops and networking events for the many small and micros businesses operating in the Biosphere area.
Community & Education – working within communities to increase understanding of climate change and global Net Zero goals, to promote local identity, and to support the unique natural and cultural heritage of the Biosphere.
A service team comprising expertise in Finance, Business Support, Marketing and Communications support the delivery of projects and initiatives by the wider team.
In keeping with the Biosphere remit to support skills training and sustainable jobs, we sometimes offer temporary development roles for young people, providing valuable work experience in a Third Sector organisation that has both local and global reach.
The GSA Biosphere is proud to have achieved accreditation as a Living Wage Employer in 2023. We are listed in Living Wage Scotland’s Employer Directory and in the Living Wage Foundation’s Directory and Map.
