Las Nubes Student Association (LNSA)

The Las Nubes Student Association (LNSA) is an organized student group at York University that was initiated to promote sustainable ecological conservation and social sustainability practices in the biological corridor of the Las Nubes region of Costa Rica.

At the LNSA, we aim to create awareness about the Las Nubes project, and to get students excited and involved in our various activities and events! Keep your eyes out for our general meetings and emails, as there are plenty of upcoming opportunities to get involved!

LNSA President

James Bockner

My name is James and I'm 27 years old. My educational path has been very circuitous; I started in aquatic rescue, moved into therapeutic recreation, and now find myself in environmental studies. I am also training to be a commercial pilot, so it goes without saying that I have a passion for travelling and experiencing other cultures. In the summer of 2022, I had the privilege of participating in York's Las Nubes program. I stayed with a host family that treated me as one of their own, and I was lucky enough to participate in the (insert name here) Festival. I had such a wonderful time that I decided to return the favour by helping to spread awareness about the Las Nubes program. It is the experience of a lifetime.
