ENVISION
A BETTER WORLD

RUN FOR WATER 2021

As part of our virtual Upstream Challenge events, we are excited to bring you Upstream for Schools! 

For every kilometre you log as a class, Envision Financial donates $35 to provide a lifelong access to clean water to one person. 

How many kilometres do you think your class can run during the month of May? 

SCHOOLS GO UPSTREAM –  HOW IT WORKS

  1. Sign up your class (One registration = one class) 
  2. Take your class running on your school field
  3. Log your run on your registration page

Do steps 2 & 3 as many times as you would like during the entire month of May. Check out the leaderboard to see how you many kilometres other classes and schools are doing – and challenge yourself! How many people can your class empower this month of May?

Even though we can’t do our mini-runs together this year, we hope you will join us for the Upstream Challenge! 


ENVISION A BETTER WORLD PROGRAM

INSPIRING KIDS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THEIR COMMUNITIES AND AROUND THE WORLD

Our Envision A Better World curriculums are used by schools across the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland to help empower our youth as globally-minded citizens with power to create change.

It is made possible through the generous support and commitment of Envision Financial.

  • Multi-Disciplinary

    The materials are organized around three central themes and can be administered and adapted in different ways. Envision a Better World resources are designed in line with B.C.’s Prescribed Learning Outcomes and B.C.’s Performance Standards of Social Responsibility. Content and materials link across English Language, Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Health and Career Education.

  • Global Citizenship

    The classroom materials give students a glimpse into the lives of children in places where there is no access to clean water and it describes the process by which various agencies like Run for Water are working to respond to the global water crisis. For older grades, it discusses the importance of local empowerment and working with indigenous knowledge & skills in ensuring the sustainability of development projects. 

  • Social Responsibility

    This classroom resource guide is intended to introduce young students to the world’s water resources by providing engaging and age-appropriate opportunities to learn about the importance of safe water and sanitation. The materials and resources embrace a multidisciplinary approach to learning and aim to empower young students to work towards a world without poverty, disease and injustice.
