Join the Movement for a Sustainable Vancouver

Needed: Volunteers for Urban Tree Tour Project-Vancouver
Organization: Biosphere Eco-Cities Canada (BECC)
Location: Greater Vancouver Area, BC

Are you passionate about making a difference in your community? Would you like to volunteer some free time to promote sustainability in Vancouver?

Biosphere Eco-Cities Canada (BECC) is seeking four or five volunteers, to dedicate 3-4 hours a week to promote a Vancouver Urban Tree Tour that was created by the Vancouver Biosphere Eco-City (VBEC) team. The purpose of the self-guided tour is to inform and educate residents of Greater Vancouver and visitors about the importance and beauty of trees in their midst. It is an unpaid volunteer position and volunteers need to be from Vancouver for on-site tasks.


A Biosphere Eco-City (BEC) refers to the urban core and the surrounding countryside of a city where people and organizations cooperate for sustainability. The BEC approach uses simple Themes and Tools to engage people and develop a culture of sustainability. BEC’s 10 Tools of Sustainability – Transportation, Energy, Design, Habitat, Food, Natural Capital, Waste, Health, Recreation, and Sense of Place – represent all areas of direct action for sustainability. Some of them relate to the urban tree tour..

BECC is a national charity that supports development of BECs. Currently there are five BEC initiatives in Canada – Ottawa, Toronto, Brampton, Edmonton, and Vancouver. For more information on the program visit
