The Kootenay-Boundary Environmental Education Initiative (KBEE) is an initiative of the Kootenay-Boundary Chapter of the British Columbia School Superintendents Association (BCSSA). It includes School Districts 5, 6, 8, 10, 20 and 51. This group is made up of the Superintendents, Assistant Superintendents, Directors of Instruction and other senior management staff of these school districts. The vision of the KBEE is to support students’ understanding of their local environment, and  empowerment of thoughtful action, through outdoor, experiential, place-based and place-conscious learning.

The purpose of this partnership is to support a coordinated focus on K-12 environmental education across the region. Teachers’ daily professional decisions and actions shape the learning, decisions and actions of future generations of environmental stewards. Individual teachers with a passion for EE and pockets of collaboration in and between schools exist now. Intentionally connecting the districts, schools, and teachers of the region and providing common awareness, access to professional development, resources, and opportunities will enhance the EE experience and learning of all of our students.
