Convening for Action explained
According to Ray Fung, current Chair of the Green Infrastructure Partnership and Past-Chair of the BCWWA Water Sustainability Committee, “All of us have attended workshops, seminars and conferences where we simply sit and listen all day. And at the end of the day, we go back to our offices and we carry on doing what we were doing.”
“Convening for action…when we are convening in a forum such as the Showcasing Innovation Series, however, it is not just for the sake of listening. Rather, when we leave the forum we want to use what we have learned so that we can take action and make a difference in our professional lives. That difference is to change the way we develop land.”
