Exciting developments for the Redfish School of Change!
Redfish School of Change 2015 will explore the Ecology, Communities, and Change Makers of the Salish SeaSalmon don't carry passports. Orcas don't identify as Canadian or American. The waters of the Salish Sea are shared between Canada and the United States, and many of the gifts and challenges of the region affect both nations. How are the people that share the same bioregion-but carry different passports- working for change?

The 2015 Redfish School of Change will explore these questions in this place. Eighteen students and three instructors will travel by kayak, bicycle, bus and foot, exploring the region named the Salish Sea.
"It's such an exciting development," says Ryan Hilperts, Director of the Redfish School of Change. "Bioregional issues very rarely stop at international borders. I'm thrilled to be able to explore these lands and waters with Redfish students and begin to broaden perspectives on the issues that we all share-Canadians and Americans- living in this place."
The 2015 program will run from July 8 to August 15, and will for the first time bring together instructors and students from both Canada and the United States. Applications from Canadian students are being accepted now, at www.schoolofchange.ca American applications will be accepted beginning late February.
