COMMUNITY

Community-based activities, programs and research are a key component of the Living Lab Project. Through a number of partners within the CRD, we prioritize local community-based projects to inform and guide all aspects of our work.

IN THE CLASS

We collaborate with local teachers, traditional knowledge holders and researchers to facilitate educational events for youth in the CRD public school system.

ON THE SEA

We are grateful to be situated on the Salish Sea, which is integral to the cultural heritage and environmental health of our region. Here are some of projects that have taken place on the ocean.

ON THE LAND

On the land, we are engaged in a number of activities involving traditional foods, agriculture, education and more!
