Youth Environmental Leadership Expeditions

EXPLORE - LEARN - CHANGE THE WORLD!

The Youth Environmental Leadership Expedition program is an environmental leadership program for youth (high school and university). It is expedition based and involves 1-2 week long expeditions, which include outdoor adventure as a way of connecting with nature and learning about nature conservation and environmental issues. Our program also weaves leadership and personal development into the expedition experience. A key component of the program is visual storytelling. We want participants to become ambassadors for the environment. We'll teach them the power of photography and film making as essential tools of communicating about nature conservation and the environment. Participants learn to create messaging with impact and help them to become young leaders and influencers.

Education

We focus on place-based learning - taking students into the field so they can see with their own eyes, the wonder, beauty, and value of our earth's natural environments. Our goal is to inspire students to learn, through transformative educational experiences.

Expedition

The best education comes through experience. This is why expeditions are a core component of our environmental education program. The physical challenges of outdoor adventure  also allow students to foster a sense of accomplishment and self-confidence.

The Biosphere Vision

Inspiration

What makes our educational programs different from others is that we use photography and videography as a core component of our teaching approach. Students learn the tools of 'environmental visual communication' so that they can inspire their peers to create positive environmental change.
