Shape a better future for BC

From education to energy and the new economy, we're prioritizing evidence-based decision-making and a collaborative approach. Bring this knowledge back to your community and help shape the province of the future.

Improve your campaign and organizing skills

You’ll learn how to run an effective ground game and “get out the vote” (GOTV), as well as how to build communities that nurture leadership and relationship-building. Soak up knowledge from the people behind our most successful campaigns.
