C2C 2021 Provincial Conference, October 22 – 23, 2021

Listening to the Land, Giving Voice to the Sea: Stories to Nourish Hope and Resiliency, 

From Victoria, B.C. and Online Everywhere

Join us in October for C2C 2021 as we explore stories of hope and resiliency connected to the land and sea, from classrooms to communities, at our annual PSA Day conference. This year’s conference will be coming to you live from Victoria and online everywhere on October 22-23!

The conference will feature a variety of online sessions, workshops, gatherings and other opportunities for professional learning, collaboration and dialogue. We’re hopeful that some local gatherings and regionally-based field experiences will also be possible.


Position Statement on

Education Outside the Classroom (EOtC)

Our K-12 curriculum in B.C. encourages teachers to take classroom learning outdoors. To support health, mental health, reduced transmission of COVID-19 and deeper learning, education outside the classroom is recommended daily for all teachers and learners across the province.

Together with the Environmental Educators’ Provincial Specialist Association (EEPSA), BC Teachers’ Federation and other C2C partners, we have developed a Position Statement on Education Outside the Classroom. Learn more about why and how we recommend the Ministry of Education enhance support for teachers and learners to engage in outdoor learning. 

There has never been a better time to take learning outside the classroom!
