Sustainable Living Leadership Program
Journey the Route of the Salmon, from Headwaters to Sea
This August, spend three weeks exploring and learning about parts of British Columbia most people never get to see�it will change the way you look at this province and its most spectacular river system. It will also help you plan out that sustainability project you have been thinking about for a while.
From August 1st to 25th, participants in the Rivershed Society of BC�s (RSBC) Sustainable Living Leadership Program<http://rivershed.com/sustainable-living-leadership-program_2013> (SLLP) will journey by raft, canoe, van and on foot from the Fraser River�s headwaters near Valemount, BC, to where it meets the shores of Vancouver, 1,400 kilometers downstream.
You will travel through �off-the-beaten-track �parts of BC, accompanied by skilled facilitators and guides, who interpret the geography, biology and history of the landscape. You will learn from and be inspired by RSBC�s extensive network of First Nation and non-native community leaders that you meet as you pass through their communities.
Team building, conflict resolution, communication and critical thinking are an important part of the program. Through the program, you discuss sustainability issues, build on your talents, and gain the skills and confidence you need to make a difference in your community.
While on the trip, you develop a formal plan for your sustainability project, which you will implement in your community after the trip.
The SLLP, now in its tenth season, is seeking applicants for the 2013 trip. The program�s host, the Rivershed Society of BC, encourages anyone with an interest in sustainability or community development to apply. To qualify, participants must be 19 years of age or older and physically fit. Community volunteer experience is an asset. The application deadline is May 31st.
