By Education Program Manager James Davis
It is with mixed emotions that I move on from my role as Education Program Manager. I have learned so much over the past two years and feel grateful for the opportunity to have worked with an amazing team of people here at Sierra Club BC, as well as teachers and students across the province.
I am excited to spend lots of time outside this summer and will be helping out at the Earth Activist Training permaculture course at OUR Ecovillage as a teaching assistant. I am also working with a team to organize the Victoria Bicycle Music Festival, which will take place in Lekwungen Territory on July 21st.
I am thrilled to be handing over the role to Ciera DeSilva, who has spent the past three years working as a teacher in Vancouver.
Ciera will have a chance to tell you more about herself in our June Education E-News, but I can tell you that I have been very impressed by her passion, creativity and dedication to reconciliation and equity. I look forward to working with her over the coming weeks to get her oriented before I leave Sierra Club BC in mid-June.
Thanks to all of you who are working hard to connect children and youth with nature. May the kinder, more beautiful world that we envision come into reality!
