2015 Environmental Education Leadership Clinic

Applications now being received

February 1, 2015

The Columbia Basin Environmental Education Network (CBEEN) is pleased to announce that applications for the 2015 Environmental Education Leadership Clinic are now being received. From April 25 – 28, eight lucky teams of four will have the opportunity to action plan, team-build and network in the spectacular setting of Kootenay National Park.

Drawing on the strength of last year’s National Environmental Education Leadership Clinic, CBEEN has taken this model and given it a regional focus. Often described as one of the best ways to turn great ideas into action, this Leadership Clinic has attracted a great deal of attention both in the Columbia Basin and across Canada. Last year, over 20 teams applied for 8 team spots, each valued at $5000.00. To put their best application forward, teams are encouraged to develop a clear, succinct and achievable goal. At the clinic they will have the opportunity to develop an action plan to achieve this goal.

Participants in last year’s Leadership Clinic shared that “The Leadership Clinic is a fantastic model for networking, team-building and productive time getting tasks done. It made getting our work done a joy and our team was buoyed by all the enthusiasm and synergy created. The gift of time and shared expertise helped our team identify goals to carry forth and implement. It was a privilege to attend the Leadership Clinic”.

This initiative was made possible by generous support from the Vancouver Foundation, the BCTF Environmental Education Provincial Specialist Association, Columbia Basin Trust, Columbia Power Corporation, Columbia Valley Community Foundation, Kicking Horse Coffee and Nipika Mountain Resort.

Applications for the 2015 Leadership Clinic will close at 12:00pm Mountain Time on Friday, February 20, 2015. To find out more or to apply to attend go to www.cbeen.org/leadership.
