Vision

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

Mission

CBEEN's mission is to encourage environmental stewardship and sustainability in the Canadian Columbia Basin by supporting environmental education initiatives.

Goals & Objectives

  1. Continue to grow an active network of environmental educators.
  2. Encourage active collaboration on environmental education initiatives amongst CBEEN members, organizations and communities.
  3. Support access to environmental education.
  4. Strengthen the capacity of environmental educators throughout the Columbia Basin.
  5. Maintain a sustainable organization which has effective and ethical governance in accordance with its non-profit and charitable status.

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.

Current Initiatives

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.

In 2015, CBEEN was presented with the BC School Superintendent Association 2015 Community Award of Recognition which recognizes their outstanding contributions to support and enhance public school education in the Province of British Columbia. In 2013, CBEEN was named ‘Outstanding Environmental Education Membership Organization’ by the Canadian Network for Environmental Education and Communication (EECOM) at its national conference.
