Environmental programming offered at Vancouver community centres, however, is currently limited. This report outlines the importance of environmental action at the grassroots level to cultivate a sustainable and equitable future. Examples of recreation-based environmental programs from other jurisdictions are featured for the Park Board to reference to promote action.
