In 2009, a project was initiated in Skåne to support sustainable development in an area with high nature values through culture, and in 2011 the non-profit association ARNA (art & nature) was formed. ARNA's target groups are residents of Vombsänkan. The focus groups are children and young people, as well as international artists with an interest in nature and sustainable development. With the goal of making imprint in the area's sustainable development, the local anchoring has been important for ARNA. This has made ARNA involved in supporting the development of a UNESCO biosphere reserve in Vombsjösänkan, an area within the three municipalities of Lund, Eslöv and Sjöbo. ARNA's vision for the biosphere reserve is that it will be the first in the world to profile itself through the cultural dimension of sustainability. One step along the way is that the biosphere candidacy has chosen the cultural dimension of sustainability as one of its focus areas. With great non-profit involvement over the years and through support from many different organizations for the development of ARNA's projects, our association has built up a unique competence within the cultural dimension for sustainability.
