The Comox Valley Land Trust’s 14th annual general meeting starts May 9 at 7 p.m. at the Evergreen Seniors’ Lounge.

Activity reports and election of officers will be followed by a presentation from guest speaker Briony Penn.

Penn is best known for her award-winning illustrated columns and articles in various regional publications, like the award-winning Focus Magazine, and hosting the TV magazine show Enviro/Mental for three years with CHUM TV, which was nominated one of the top three magazine shows in Canada.

Briony is a delightful speaker and will bring a message for youth.

Spending more time outside in nature makes us happier and the studies prove what we already knew intuitively — being inside looking at a screen all day is really bad for us and is impacting the life expectancy and quality of life for our children.

It is also making the next generation less resilient to the upheavals that climate and other environmental changes are bringing.

Briony brings some of the best success stories from leaders in this field on how to turn this juggernaut around.

Supporting but going beyond outdoor schools and youth summer immersion camps to envisioning a restoration economy.

A restoration economy is one where nature is valued properly and where meaningful interesting outdoor work — not just temporary spade-ready grunt work — is once again a choice for our kids.
