Our Purpose

What is Sustainability Education?

Organizations whose ultimate purpose is education — be they outdoor schools, indoor schools, NGO's or others — embody a core set of values that determine their direction and approach. At Sea to Sky we are an outdoor school for sustainability education. This means that through our learning adventures all of us, youth and adults alike, at the most fundamental level will improve our effectiveness as citizens in our home communities.

Sustainability education should make each of us more thankful for what we have and more competent in creating durable, resilient, and responsible lives. It is a beautiful world and each of us is needed to protect, restore and enhance the relationship between people and this precious planet, in whatever way we can. This is the essence of sustainability education and this is what Sea to Sky Outdoor School is all about.
