Event Details

The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (www.cpawsbc.org) is launching a special sixth edition of Take Back the Wild training program, a program aimed at identifying, connecting and engaging a new generation of leaders. This upcoming program is designed to educate and empower B.C. youth under 35 from Prince Rupert and the surrounding North coast area with the skills and knowledge necessary to impact marine planning in the Great Bear Sea.

The program will kick off with a weekend long training in Prince Rupert from April 8-10, 2016. The second summit will be in Victoria, on a Wednesday – Friday in October 2016, exact dates to be determined.

We are seeking young leaders from the North Coast who are connected to the Great Bear Sea in a variety of ways. Our goal is to bring a diverse and passionate group of people together, whether you enjoy exploring the coastal waters with your family, fishing, work in the area or have another connection. By the end of the two summits, our goal is for these young leaders to not only understand how marine planning affects the community, but how they can affect it.

There is no cost to attend this summit. Food and accommodation is included. Travel grants are available.
