U of S and Redberry Lake to host sustainability event

The School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS) at the University of Saskatchewan (U of S) has partnered with the Redberry Lake Biosphere Reserve to host an event showcasing rural and agricultural sustainability in the region.

The Community Connections event, titled Assessing Rural and Agricultural Sustainability in the Redberry Lake Biosphere Reserve, includes a presentation by SENS graduate students on how the local area can advance its environmental, social and economic sustainability.

In addition, a delegation from the Research Institute for Humanity and Nature in Kyoto, Japan, has traveled overseas for the event to learn more about the research and partnerships happening in the biosphere reserve and how those partnerships are addressing change and supporting sustainability through improved governance.
