Passing of David Bell

Please see below the following from Learning for a Sustainable Future (LSF) regarding the death of David Bell, a champion in the area of education for sustainable development. David was a good friend of RCE Saskatchewan.--Roger

It is with deep regret and sadness that we share with you the news of the passing of Dr. David V.J. Bell  on January 10, 2017.

Dr. David VJ Bell has been a member of LSF since 1995 and became Chair of the Board of Directors in 2006. He has been an integral part of our organization for over 22 years. His passion, commitment and dedication to sustainability and education have left a permanent imprint at LSF; we would not be where we are today if not for his countless contributions.

David was an advocate for youth and a champion for the environment.  He was a friend, mentor, and inspiration for all. He will be sorely missed by all of us.

We plan to set up a LSF fund in his memory.  We will provide you with details shortly.
