Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do; learn more about the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals!

17 SDG's


The UNESCO Biosphere Regions were created to promote solutions in the reconciling of biological conservation with its sustainable use. They are learning sites for sustainable development under diverse ecological, cultural and economic contexts.

One of the best ways to inspire sustainable mindsets and initiatives within the community is to get outside and connect with nature. Getting connected with our natural environment can help improve human livelihood, inspire innovative approaches to economic development that are culturally and environmentally sustainable and help safeguard the Frontenac Arch for generations to come!

Here at the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Network, we work to incorporate many of the UN Sustainable Development goals into our programs and outreach. Our Nature Camps aim to bring a new approach to learning through fostering connections with our natural environment and exploring the natural wonders of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere. Our Nature Camps work with many of the UN Sustainable Development Goals relating to Quality Education (SDG 4), Life on Land (Goal 15) and Climate Action (Goal 13). Through education and hands-on experiences with nature, the FABN Nature Camps work to build deeper connections between youth and the environment. The knowledge and experiences gained from outdoor education help youth make sustainable choices and allow them to share that knowledge with others, building community sustainability and resilience.

Through our social media outreach, we aim to share ways that everyone can participate in sustainability. Whether that be small actions such as reducing waste in the kitchen to shifting mindsets that foster sustainability. The Frontenac Arch Biosphere has amazing ecosystems, that are home to many incredible plants and animals, and many diverse communities. Implementing the UN Sustainable Development Goals in the Frontenac Arch promotes finding local solutions to global issues and ensures the environment will be protected and communities will flourish for years to come.

There are many things you can do to be sustainable in your home. This not only protects valuable resources and prevents damage to the environment, but can also save you money!
