About us

The Wienerwald BR Management regards itself as representatives of the Wienerwald region both internally and externally. It is a non-profitmaking organisation which was founded in 2006 by the Federal States of Lower Austria and Vienna.

Our objectives are:

  • to fulfil UNESCO’s expectations of biosphere reserves in the long term. This includes, above all, the development of a model region for a sustainable approach to living, working, learning and conservation.

  • to fashion, hand in hand with partners, the parameters for and secure the future of the Wienerwald and jointly find ways to enhance the quality of life in this region.

  • to foster and maintain the diversity of nature, culture, economy and education.

  • play our part in ensuring that aspects of environmental protection and nature conservation become integral parts of the BR’s activities.

  • play our part in adding value to the Wienerwald region. Regional products and offerings as well as sustainable initiatives for regional development are to feature prominently in this endeavour.

  • to support research and monitoring with a focus on human interactions with the environment.

  • to create a profile that is closely identified with the biosphere reserve.

The Biosphärenpark Management (BR Management) set up temporarily in 2002 was incorporated in the non-profitmaking Biosphärenpark Wienerwald Management GmbH (BPWW Management GmbH) which receives its core funding from the two Federal States of Lower Austria and Vienna.

The General Assembly of the Biosphärenpark Wienerwald Management GmbH is composed of the two government officials from the Federal States of Lower Austria and Vienna, which are responsible for the Biosphärenpark Wienerwald.

The Supervisory Board is composed of two functional representatives from each Federal State of Lower Austria and Vienna.
