|6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
|Biscuit: A Place to Sup
Tim Chapman, Program Manager of Wildsight’s East Kootenay Youth Climate Corps (YCC), will be speaking about the importance of connecting youth with the environment. Specifically by empowering skillset growth through working with partners from environmental and community-based organizations to address climate change locally. He enjoys plugging young folks into the world of environmental work, providing practical skills and experience that will be used in future employment. Tim is thrilled to point out, “We work together to minimize the impacts of climate change while building a more resilient future.”
The crews Tim has led address climate change at the local level, directly in their communities and the ecosystems that surround them. Crew members have worked on projects ranging from food security to ecosystem restoration to wildfire risk reduction. Tim is currently preparing to launch the 4th cohort of YCC in Kimberley and will be sharing the impact of the program in the Kimberley community.
