Co-Creating a Sustainable BC
The Fraser Basin Council Youth Program is thrilled to announce Co-Creating a Sustainable BC, a new initiative beginning Summer 2019 that will encourage and support youth sustainability leadership in BC.
Youth in Kamloops & the Sea-to-Sky Corridor – We Need You!
We are looking for up to 12 youth in Kamloops and surrounding communities to form a Thompson cohort and up to 12 youth in the Sea-to-Sky Corridor (Squamish, Whistler, Pemberton and area) to form a Sea-to-Sky cohort.*
*IMPORTANT: Please note that our Williams Lake regional cohort has unfortunately been cancelled. We are hoping to do this initiative in Williams Lake again in the future!
Each cohort will have an opportunity to collaborate on sustainability projects and co-create new visions for resilient and inclusive communities. You do not need to have a lot of past experience; in fact, we are seeking youth with a diverse range of backgrounds, experiences and skills. We believe that the most important quality to have is passion for and commitment to your local community!
