UNESCO Biosphäre Entlebuch is running a new exhibition on sustainable provision of life quality in the Entlebuch UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, until March 2022.
What constitutes a high quality of life? What aspects are important for a high quality of life? And how can a high quality of life and sustainability be reconciled?
The exhibition "We love Äntlibuech" deals with these questions and focuses on the Entlebuch and its inhabitants. The exhibition is based on the research project "Sustainable quality of life in parks of national importance" by the University of Bern. This showed that the average quality of life in the Entlebuch is very high - even higher than in other regions of Switzerland. The research results serve as the basis for a search for clues: Why is the quality of life in the Entlebuch particularly high? Which aspects of life make the quality of life particularly high? And what about the sustainability of this high quality of life: can our grandchildren still enjoy the same high quality of life - or are we living beyond our means?
The exhibition will not provide definitive answers. It is intended to encourage visitors to think about their own quality of life: What makes it so? How long will it last? How satisfied am I with important aspects? So it is also about taking a critical look at one's own life. Here and there, the exhibition will offer ways and alternatives to well-rehearsed patterns of life that suit some, but not others. The aim of the exhibition is to become aware of the various aspects of one's own quality of life and to dare to take a step here and there towards a more sustainable quality of life.
