A thank you to all who attended our annual C2C Summer Solstice Event this past June! It was a huge success and great to see so many K-12 educators, post-secondary educators, community partners, collaborators and champions for change.
This year, we started the celebration with a Leadership Circle of place-based learning champions from school districts across Metro Vancouver. This rich conversation shared some successes from across the region, and then made some headway into how we want to work together as a regional network. Some key ideas that came forward were: the power of intentional organization to amplify our voices, the importance of targeted collaborative time, processes to engage our district administrators, the importance of a strong mentor network for teacher candidates in this field, and a desire to map out our circle by district. We will pick up these key ideas and carry them forward when we meet again at the October Classrooms to Communities conference at UBC.
Thank you to all who came out and stay tuned for our next Solstice Event happening this December!
