Sir / Madam,
Our Leadership 11 Sustainability class is once again in the
process of planning our 10th annual Climate Change Conference.
Our goal for this event is the education and empowerment of
students across the VSB and the lower mainland. We aim to give youth and
members of the community the chance to engage with complex sustainability
issues in a way that promotes hope and a sense of empowerment. This event will
also give youth the opportunity to network with like-minded peers, and gain
inspiration to make their own schools and communities more environmentally
just. Our class will visit our elementary feeder schools as well as other high
schools in the Vancouver area to promote this event and widen the network of
youth in active citizenship. We are also working with students from other
districts such as Coquitlam and Surrey that attended our climate conference in
To help fundraise for this event, we are doing a vegetable bundle
fundraiser to help raise money for not just this conference, but also to
support local BC farmers. Local food and food security is a big issue in
regards to sustainability and access to resources/land, and supporting our
local food systems are one way in which we can contribute to a more
well-rounded and sustainable food system.
We are offering two locally grown BC bundles to help support healthier
food choices, local BC farmers and suppliers, and the organization of our
