Vision of the Redberry Lake Biosphere Reserve
We who reside within the Redberry Lake Biosphere Reserve live and work together in a healthy landscape under a common banner of equality, dignity, and respect. Democratic processes are fundamental to our community decision-making at every level, and community and economic growth are managed in an orderly and considered fashion that can be seen by others as an ideal for human community living and sustainable environmental practice.
Goals of the Redberry Lake Biosphere Reserve
The biodiversity conservation goals are:
To maintain, and remain empowered to maintain, a healthy landscape with clean water and air and a thriving diversity of native species.
To continue to restore degraded soils and waters, as vital ecological services needed for survival.
The sustainable development goals are:
To recognize that the concept of marginal land refers only to agricultural suitability and that non-agricultural lands are also valuable to society at large and worthy of careful management.
To offer successful demonstrations of sustainable practice and be in a position to advocate on behalf of other places in Canada and the world that seek to have sustainable communities.
To have profitable farms, businesses and community endeavors.
The capacity building goals are:
To entrench democratic process in decision-making for actions that affect the community, and preserve the right to meaningful and direct participation in the processes of our choice without manipulation from outside agencies.
To engage young people in selecting and creating opportunities for recreation, employment, education, and spiritual well-being.
To cooperate with other communities and other agencies and governments in all cases where tangible mutual benefit is assured.
