The Co-operators and The Natural Step Canada are partnering to offer the IMPACT! Sustainability Champions Training in Vancouver (with applicants welcome from Victoria, the Lower Mainland, and surrounding regions). Participants will deepen their sustainability understanding, enhance their confidence as leaders, and be empowered to develop meaningful sustainability projects in the community.
The program is anchored by a 2-day in-person workshop taking place April 26-27, 2013. Following the training, each participant is expected to develop and implement a local sustainability project that will help transform and better their community (or take on a leadership role to advance an existing opportunity). Participants receive top-notch training, project development tools, as well as mentorship for 4 months following the workshop to ensure their community projects have the highest chance of success. Participants will also have exclusive access to apply for project seed funding from The Co-operators’ IMPACT! Fund.
The highly-subsidized participant cost is only a $50 commitment fee, and entrance fee bursaries are available based on need. To ensure a quality learning environment, participation is limited and the deadline for applications is April 7, 2013.
