Encouraging environmental stewardship and sustainability in the Canadian Columbia Basin by supporting educators.

Our Vision:

People in the Canadian Columbia Basin respect the natural environment and engage in sustainable activities.

CBEEN acts as a regional umbrella network for environmental education that supports, encourages, and facilitates environmental education initiatives, and fosters environmental stewardship and sustainability, throughout the Canadian Columbia Basin. CBEEN has been working since 2002 to build a community of engaged and effective educators by connecting them with the best resources, information, professional development, delivery and networking opportunities available. The network finds efficiencies associated with facilitating and strengthening environmental education throughout the region. CBEEN believes that environmental education is a long-term investment in the general health and well-being of individuals, communities, ecosystems and the planet.
