Environmental Programming Student Survey - 2008

Did you know 300 new jobs go up on the ECO Canada website every month?

Did you know 14,000 more jobs in the environmental sector will be created over the next three years? (Environment Canada, 2007)

To train graduates who will fill these jobs Okanagan College is currently developing environmental studies and management programming.

This survey is meant to determine student interest in environmental programming at Okanagan College.

The programs will be inclusive and interdisciplinary, including both arts and science training. Also, the views of First Nations will be included in the programs as well as training on how First Nations manage their lands. The programs will be based on practical knowledge about the environment and how to work in the environmental sector.

Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey.
