Promote Urban Rural Cooperation

Sustainability benefits people and nature in both urban and rural parts of the Edmonton region. When urban processes are managed to reduce environmental impacts, it increases residents’ quality of life and reduces urban pressure on the countryside. Edmonton BEC volunteers are building upon the existing events, community abilities, and the work of other organizations, to make Edmonton a Biosphere Eco-City over the next couple of years. EBEC knows also that Edmonton’s rural area provides many benefits for urban residents in terms of food, health, recreation etc. Our goal is to build capacity through education and action for sustainability under all Themes of Sustainability.
