A new initiative aimed at encouraging tourism providers and supporters of protected landscapes to become ‘landscape ambassadors’ has been launched.
The online tool ‘Know Our Land’ takes the form of themed multiple-choice questions that test your knowledge about the North Wessex Downs. It can be used by anyone from hoteliers and visitor attractions, residents and supporters, to visitors and those who simply want to find out more.
Developed as part of ‘Our Land’ – a sustainable tourism initiative celebrating the UK’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and National Parks – this new training scheme is designed to equip participants with sound knowledge of their local area.
A wide range of topics is covered in the training course, including wildlife, historic buildings and landscape features. After successful completion, participants can print out and display their own ‘Landscape Ambassador’ certificate.
