Text: Climate Action Technician - take a hands-on approach to climate action work!
 
This season the Kimberley-Cranbrook YCC crew will be working with several partners from environmental and community-based organizations to address climate change locally. Crew members will be conducting work in a range of fields from food security to ecosystem restoration to wildfire risk reduction. This year’s team will experience an array of disciplines and learn how each is contributing to climate action work in its own unique way!

 

Kimberley-Cranbrook 2023 Season Skills Focus
 
  • Greater understanding of local ecological communities
  • The ability to understand the workings of, and communicate about climate action work
  • An understanding of local community resources
  • A refined ability to think critically and overcome challenging tasks and situations
  • Development of unique individual perspectives and opinions


These represent core skills sets we expect our team to walk away from the program with. However, through the participation and implementation of our project work, those involved will most certainly walk away with more.
