About Us

Through story, music, interactive media and live theatre, we create inclusive, meaningful, and full-throttle experiences that children adore and that instill positive environmental values in their hearts – and in their actions. After experiencing our programs, kids feel energized, happy, and eager to put into practice what they have learned!

The Dreamrider Story

We started as a project of the City of Vancouver in 1997, engaging elementary school kids in water conservation through theatre. Word spread, and pretty soon we were working with municipalities to reach schools, teachers, and kids throughout the Metro Vancouver region. Due to popular demand we became our own independent non-profit society in 2002, before becoming a registered charity in 2005.

Following the success of our award-winning live theatre shows, we wanted to scale our reach and impact beyond Metro Vancouver to inspire a whole generation of environmental superheroes. The result is the Planet Protector Academy, a unique digital-led classroom based program in which kids become 'apprentice' Planet Protectors and go home on superhero missions to change their families' behaviours!

We work with diverse communities to inspire environmental superheroes of all races, ethnic backgrounds, orientations, gender identities and religions. Our programming reaches through schools and into families to empower everyone as planet protectors!
