Damüls, Fontanella and Faschina are surrounded by a wonderful and unique nature. Therefore, it is important for the inhabitants of the region to protect the environment and to minimize interference in nature.
At a few meters from Damüls begins the Biosphärenpark Grosses Walsertal, a real natural jewel in Vorarlberg. The region was declared a protected UNESCO Biosphere Park & Preserve in 2000 by promoting a holistic concept within the whole Walsertal valley which centers on sustainable life and economy in this picture-part of the country.
The people in the region play a central role. They are invited to actively participate in the protection and development of their habitat.
"Using Nature without Destroying"
This is the undisputed slogan of the Grosses Walsertal Biosphere Park in various continents around the globe. The main question focuses on how to protect both nature and environment in order to maintain the world's natural basis of existence coupled with the requirements of men.
