Sustainable Communities Field School

Build a greener team in nature with the Sustainable Communities Field School!

The Field School engages businesses and community organizations with local sustainability principles through corporate programs in nature designed to empower employees and organizations to drive change.

With entrepreneurial resources and human capital, local businesses and organizations will help drive the global shift to a greener economy. The Field School aims to harness the productive spirit of companies to help make Vancouver a bright green city through fun and engaging programming.

In a nutshell, the program:

  • Is hosted at the beautiful UBC botanical garden.
  • Includes a canopy walk, a food garden visit and plenty of team building activities. 
  • Includes snacks and can also include lunch (see below).
