“Koh-learning in the Nechako Watershed: Honouring Seasonal Voices among Youth, Communities and Waterways”


This panel will profile a UNBC – School District 91 collaboration focused on “Koh (waterway)-learning in our watersheds”.

This experiential, nature- and place-based program of integrative learning within watersheds is designed to support commitments to First People’s Principles of Learning including connectedness, reciprocal relationships, and sense of place.

The panel will profile different insights about Koh-learning from those involved, and explore pathways of change, learning and transformation from student, teacher, researcher and community perspectives.
