The Living Lab Toolkit has been created as a resource to share our network’s activities, priorities, and future dreaming, related to locally situated land-based learning initiatives in LƏK̓ʷƏŊƏN and W̱SÁNEĆ territories. This resource will be purposeful for teachers, administrators, and frontline workers who are curious about our work in land and sea restoration and Indigenous Resurgence on Coast Salish Lands. As co-creators of the work unfolding within the Living Lab Project network, we invite suggestions and, of course, the opportunities to make and deepen relationships, so that we may continue healing ourselves, our communities, and the land—a vision that grounds all that we do.
Many thanks to Chelsea Thomas, Living Lab Curriculum Coordinator, for putting this toolkit together.
We’ve also updated our Living Lab Inventory for 2022, you can read it here.
