Due to the health and safety concerns surrounding COVID-19 and following advice of the British Columbia Provincial Health Services Authority, the BC Parks Foundation has made the difficult decision to postpone the Great Parks Great People Summit indefinitely. We would like to graciously thank our community Advisory Committee and partners for their ongoing support during this time.
In British Columbia, our parks are much more than a playground. They’re our life, our livelihood, our identity, our history and our future.
At the Great Parks Great People Summit, you’ll celebrate B.C.’s protected areas and at the same time, you’ll be building the path to our tomorrow. You’re invited to dive in, get your hands (figuratively) dirty and join as we, collectively, chart our trail to having the best system of parks and protected areas in the world.
About your host
BC Parks Foundation is leading an expedition to create the best parks system in the world. They do this by working with British Columbians, visitors and organizations to protect, enhance and sustain B.C.’s parks, while inspiring and connecting people to them. Together, the Foundation and this community are keeping B.C. beautiful.
Join industry experts, professionals and peers who know the ins and outs of our parks in hands-on workshops and active discussions to map the future of B.C.’s protected areas.
Dive into actionable solutions for current and future park stewards. Inspiring keynotes and collaborative sessions will bring together the people who have a passion to build the best parks system in the world.
Visit our local parks and take part in interactive experiences, learn how to be a citizen scientist, or try a new outdoor activity like kayaking! What better way to envision the future of our protected areas than to get outside and explore them?
