Recap of Winter Pro-D Conferences!

Be the Change is honoured to have been able to present at four recent Professional Development conferences to over 80 teacher participants from: North Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Central Okanagan, BC Independent Schools, and more! Our Pro-D facilitators Maureen, Cate and George were thrilled about these wonderful opportunities to share our Student Leadership for Change resources with teachers across British Columbia that are passionate about environmental and social issues, and want to empower their students to become long-term sustainability and social justice changemakers. Here’s what one teacher participant had to say after the workshop: 

I am blown away by the depth and quality of the resources
provided on the website. A treasure trove of competency-rich
engaging inquiries!”

Welcome to Our New Youth Projects Coordinator! 

Be the Change is excited to introduce our new Youth Projects Coordinator, Anna Tokunaga, who will be leading the Youth for Climate Action project. 

About Anna

Anna grew up in Jasper National Park on the Beaver, Cree, Ojibway, Secwépemc, Stoney, and Métis territories where her passion and love for nature developed. In 2019, she graduated from McGill University with a Bachelor’s in Psychology and Environmental Studies, specifically focusing on environmental health. While in Montreal, Anna worked with the non-profit, Youth Fusion, to guide students through creating a project based on environmental design.

Anna is interested in encouraging and supporting the young change-makers who are passionate about social and environmental issues and are ready to take action. She is excited to reduce the sense of climate grief through agency and action.

Be the Change Earth Alliance  is able to continue its work empowering students and youth through the generosity of its donors. Please consider donating today. Thank you!
