The basic idea behind Biosphere Reserves is the sustainable interaction between man and nature. These model regions are intended to show that sustainable management pays off. The Engadine Val Müstair region is ideally suitable as a Biosphere Reserve, as its cultural landscape has high natural and landscape qualities. These qualities are preserved and promoted through sustainable agricultural and forestry use. The core area is free from human interference and offers nature and researchers an area of non-interference and observation.

With the UNESCO label, these qualities can be effectively emphasised in tourism marketing. More and more guests are longing for untouched nature, local products, soft mobility and sustainability. This offers a unique opportunity for positioning. The tourism organisation Engadine Scuol Samnaun Val Müstair has recognised this and developed corresponding offers. The task now is to continue together on this promising path  and thus to give the region a clear competitive advantage.
