Youth Diversity Dialogue

Thanks to everyone who was part of our youth dialogue in Richmond on April 7-8. What an inspiring event! Urban and rural youth of diverse backgrounds came together to share their goals and aspirations, build connections, and discuss their vision for the future of the communities where they live and work. The event was hosted by the Fraser Basin Council and BC Rural Network, with support from Inspirit Foundation.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and across BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
