About VSBSC

The VSBSC executive team is currently planning its sixth annual conference. The Conference welcomes students, teachers, administrators, and PAC members from all 18 Vancouver secondary schools, as well as board staff and trustees, out-of-district attendees, and elementary school teachers.

Building upon the successes of past conferences, VSBSC  hopes to:

Celebrate sustainability inside and outside of the VSB.

Showcasing environmental action can inspire even more action, and we want to open the eyes of our community to just how much potential is buzzing around them. 

Empower youth with the skills and networks needed to execute their ideas. 

In hopes that this will enable students to tackle projects with a strong foundation, built by like-minded people before them.

We hope to build bridges between youth, organizations, and existing sustainability expertise, in order to strengthen them all through their bonds.

Facilitate both inter- and intra-school discussion on sustainability goals and post-conference action plans.

By providing participants with time to brainstorm within their school groups what sustainable action they would like to see taken at their schools, we hope to rally students to enact the change they wish to collectively see. We also hope that bringing all 18 VSB high schools along with out-of-district schools together will encourage inter-school support on sustainability projects, particularly ones that have been previously undertaken by other VSB schools.
