Youth are the future of the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve. Their relationships with this place are special and, combined with a solid education, our children will be prepared to guide us. They will become the leaders and decision-makers determining the path of conservation, sustainable development, quality of life and the preservation of valuable traditional beliefs.
Our Youth and the Biosphere program is linked to UNESCO’s mandate in the area of education. From formal education programs delivered within schools to informal learning delivered beyond four walls for students of all ages, our educational programs have increased understanding about the places in which we live.
Fostering the relationship between our youth and this special place was the driving force between creating the Youth and the Biosphere initiative. In addition to annual scholarships delivered in partnership with Genus Capital Management, the CBT participates in projects that help young people gain greater insight into their connection to the diversity and uniqueness of Clayoquot Sound.
