Sustainable Living Leadership Program

Imagine the ultimate learning experience. Imagine a three week, 1200 km journey down one of the world’s great rivers, the greatest salmon river on earth: the Fraser. The Sustainable Living Leadership Program brings you – first hand – the theory and practice of sustainable living and community stewardship. The SLLP explores what it means to be a leader, live sustainably, and become a community steward. SLLP participants participate in team-building exercises and activities, experience different Fraser Rivershed regions, listen to different perspectives from Fraser Rivershed community stewards, discuss sustainable living concepts and how they can be applied in their lives, learn about community stewardship. SLLP participants learn and experience the People of the Fraser River Basin (e.g. Communities, First Nations & Stewards), places of the Fraser River Basin (e.g. Riversheds, Biogeoclimatic Zones, etc.), and subjects on Sustainable Living (e.g. Deep Ecology, Bioregionalism, Choices for Sustainable Living & Simplicity), Community Stewardship and Leadership Development.
