Youth Facilitator Training

WKGAN is very excited to be organizing a youth program supported by BCCIC and partnering with OzGreen and their YOUth LEADing the World program to offer facilitator training in Nelson Feb 9 – 11. This facilitation training is for all folks 12 and older, with an invitation for adults to join in so that they can hold a supportive role for the youth leaders. Although there is a fee for training, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Mike and Dan Host BC2030 Meeting

Dan and Mike presented information on last years community round tables, presented the “Invisible Mosaic” – highlighting local community groups and the SDG areas that they are working on. Then they introduced the current focus on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, leading some lively conversation with the group
