Jau sun Biosfera
8 January 2020
The inhabitants of the Münstertal valley in Graubünden (Grisons) have declared themselves in favour of the Charta 2021-30.
This document sets out the aims of the Biosfera Val Müstair Nature Park for the next ten years. The next step is on cantonal and federal level. It shows the way how Switzerland functions, bottom-up.
Sustainable development, tourism, agricultural regional development and nature conservation are not opposing goals but complement each other.
More than a thousand years before Val Müstair was awarded the title of a nature park of national importance in 2011, it was already a region of international importance.
The monastery of St. Johann in Müstair, founded by Charlemagne after his campaign against the Langobards in 774, is a reminder of this history.
Many museums, centuries-old villages, the town of Sta. Maria and the centuries-old hotel Chatscha Jaura (with celebrities such as Charly Chaplin as guests) and the Muglin Mall, merge with the beautiful landscape and nature.
However, the Biosfera does not live in the past but looks forward The result of the referendum confirms this policy.
A win-win situation for all those involved, including agriculture, which already produces 80% certified organic agricultural products.
