Engage with Nature-Based Solutions

Community Stories

Storytelling is a powerful tool for change. Our Community Stories inspire and educate, illustrating successful nature-based solutions partnerships within local communities.

We are currently collaborating to create in-depth stories for communities across the country, beginning with the southwest region of BC. We use videos and storymaps (small, interactive websites that feature maps, text, photos, and other media). Explore the diverse stories below!
