National leadership clinic coming to the Kootenays

Columbia Basin Environmental Education Network is looking to offer an environmental education opportunity in the region.

The Columbia Basin Environmental Education Network (CBEEN) is teaming up with its national counterpart, the Canadian Network for Environmental Education and Communication (EECOM), to offer an environmental education opportunity in the Kootenay region.

This spring, eight teams of four will have the opportunity to participate in the Kootenay’s first Environmental Education Leadership Clinic, to be held April 26 -29.

Taking place adjacent to Kootenay National Park at Nipika Mountain Resort, the leadership clinic will give regional organizations the opportunity to team build, action plan and work with others who are doing similar work across the country.

“We want to provide the ideal setting for teams to come away with collaborative works, valuable strategies, and a plan that will turn their ideas into action,” said CBEEN chair, Gillian Cooper.

CBEEN is looking at this clinic being used as the scaffolding to host a much larger national conference in the Kootenays in 2017 which would bring hundreds of practitioners and academics to the region.
