Four years ago, a small group of people came together to explore how to change attitudes and behaviours and increase the amount of time people in our city were spending outdoors for living and learning. We created an annual weeklong outdoor education festival, and a movement to increase time spent outdoors. This presentation will equip you to use similar means to accomplish the same goal in your community. Hartley will provide advice on how to get started, how to reach out to community members, how to raise funds, and finally, the lessons we have learned.
Hartley Banack, the founder and Chair of Wild About Vancouver, is a Lecturer in the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy, Faculty of Education, at the University of British Columbia.
