The Wild Festival for Youth, held every June at Okanagan College and Hall Road Pond in Kelowna, has enriched the lives of

thousands of students throughout the Central Okanagan by providing them with environmental education and interactive

outdoor experiences in nature.

Since 1999, this unique opportunity for youth has become a celebrated event in Kelowna and is a symbol of our

community’s commitment to a sustainable future. City of Kelowna Mayor Colin Basran, Honourary Chairperson of the

Festival, says it best: “Our natural environment is what makes Kelowna such a special place, and we’re proud to have

been the host city for the Wild Festival for Youth since 1999. It’s a great interactive event where the citizens of tomorrow

learn about environmental stewardship and what they can do to preserve our wild areas for generations to come.”

The Wild Festival for Youth is one of Canada’s leading environmental festivals, and is the only festival of its kind that is

specific to the involvement of youth. The activities offered at the festival are designed to increase youth awareness,

knowledge, and understanding of biodiversity in the hundreds of youth who participate. The theme is presented in a fun

and interactive manner, focusing on how today’s youth can act as leaders for a more sustainable future.
