Co-Creating a Sustainable BC

Want to change the world? Start in your community!

Co-Creating a Sustainable BC - Applications open!

The 2021-2022 Cowichan Valley cohort helped support the basic needs of Duncan’s residents by building and stocking a community pantry in the city’s downtown, with help from the Cowichan Green Community’s Kin Park team. If you live in the area, you may have received one of their informational door hangers about the project.

Youth taking charge of climate and sustainability solutions—that’s what Co-Creating a Sustainable BC is all about!

Youth-led projects are underway in the Fraser Valley, North-Central BC and Thompson regions of BC for Co-Creating a Sustainable BC 2022-2023.

Youth in the program deepen their understanding of the social, economic and environmental aspects of sustainability, and take what they've learned to design and implement a project that will have a direct and positive impact in their own communities. By the end of CCSBC, they can come away feeling confident in their ability to advocate for change and to realize a shared vision of a healthy and thriving community.

It's a valuable experience for all!

  • Collaborating and forming relationships with other youth who care about the environment and their community
  • Learning from and networking with leaders in their region and across the province doing exciting work on sustainability and climate change
  • Encouraging positive action in communities through their own sustainability projects
  • Strengthening skills in project coordination and implementation, such as planning, communications, budgeting and more
  • Building bonds and connecting with the land and waters through outdoor-based learning trips (all expenses paid!)
  • Most of all, HAVING FUN!

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 throughout 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.
