Biospheres are places where nature and culture connect. They are internationally recognised for their biological diversity yet also actively managed to promote a balanced relationship between people and nature. A biosphere is a special designation awarded by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) but managed in partnership by communities, NGOs and local and national governments. The biosphere designation brings no new regulations; its aims are achieved by people working together.
Dean Eaton is the Biosphere Coordinator for Dublin Bay Biosphere Partnership. He is in the final year of a 3 year secondment with responsibility for managing the Dublin Bay UNESCO Biosphere. Prior to joining the Biosphere Partnership Dean spent 12 years as an Environmental Awareness Officer initially with Exeter City Council and more recently with Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. Prior to his work as an environment officer, Dean managed garden centres for Sainsbury’s Homebase including garden centres at their flagship stores in Kensington and Ewell.
