2017 BCRPA Symposium - Cultivating Community Connections


Location: Kelowna, BC

Website: http://www.bcrpa.bc.ca/symposium-2017

The theme for 2017 is “Cultivating Connected Communities” and the program has a great variety of sessions. Our work in the recreation and parks sector fosters community connections and the Symposium will support our consideration about that in new ways.

There are numerous educational sessions from which we are sure you will benefit. These sessions are within five streams, based on the goals in the Framework for Recreation in Canada: Health promoting practices, Inclusive recreation, Outdoor recreation, Supportive systems and practices, and Recreation sustainability. Presenters from within our field and from outside will inform us and challenge us, with the ultimate goal of constant improvement in our efforts to build healthy communities
