VSB Sustainability Conference Youth Organizers

It was a great pleasure to be on the planning team for the VSB sustainability conference.  This year's conference brought together youth delegations from all over the Vancouver Board of Education. (above).  In total, there were 300 participants.  These delegations dreamed together and articulated their plans to the VSB who pledged to support the sustainability initiatives with mini-grants.  scans of the drawings will follow soon.
