For the workshop portion, two large, 10’ x 20’ enclosed tents with space heaters will be set up to ensure participants are warm. Students learn more about the problem of plastics in our ocean and create a plan of action for reducing plastic use that they can implement at home, at school or more widely.
The paddling section encompasses basic stand-up paddling and safety skills. The focus will be on fun, on discovering the ocean from a paddleboard, and on spending time at the beach. Each board will have a mesh bag on it for collecting any garbage students find while paddling.
Students will also have time to explore the beach between sessions and will be asked to pick up any garbage they find – in a safe way.
We are also very excited to be working with a group on Haida Gwaii to create a partnership that will engage youth from the mainland with youth from Haida Gwaii where their understanding of and commitment to sustainability and respect for nature go back 30,000 years.
