Celebrating Stewardship! Creating Stewardship Legacies!
Start date: 1 June, 2016
End date: 30 September, 2017
The Celebrating Stewardship – Celebrating Stewardship Legacies! project will celebrate the contributions over the past century of community conservation volunteers and will encourage the creation of new stewardship legacies for future generations.
Nature of the Project Reach
We are celebrating stewards from all walks of life who have made and are making an impact in the past, and encouraging the creation of stewardship legacies for future generations. The audience of this project will include a wide cross-section of citizens of all ages and cultural backgrounds from our three target regions (Okanagan – Similkameen, Vancouver, and Victoria). However, project messaging will be targeted to include the whole province, including northern communities, with an audience of all ages and cultural backgrounds.
An initiative of the Stewardship Centre for British Columbia and G2/ Give Green Canada, the goals of this project are to:
• Celebrate land and water stewardship and the key historic and cultural heritage values of both aboriginal and non-aboriginal peoples and to share stories of past and present stewards, often unsung heroes in their communities.
• Create the opportunity for individuals to work together to identify key local areas of cultural and environmental value that will require care and maintenance by future generations
• Encourage individuals to give back to their communities by creating legacies for future generations.
We have opportunities for organizations and individuals to contribute to our "stewardship heroes" campaign where we are celebrating land and water stewardship, key historic and cultural heritage values of both aboriginal and non-aboriginal Canadians. We are seeking to share stories of past and present stewards, often unsung heroes in their communities. This will be a chance to hear each other, understand each other, and move forward together. We are also creating the opportunity for stewards to work together to identify key local areas of cultural and environmental value that may require care and maintenance by future generations. Finally, we are encouraging Canadian citizens to give back to their communities by creating stewardship legacies for future generations.
