2014 Annual General Meeting: Report from CAVI Chair reflects on a vision for Vancouver Island in 50 years
Inter-Regional Collaboration & A Vision for Vancouver Island
“Since the launch of CAVI in 2006, the primary focus has been information sharing and education,” wrote Derek Richmond, Chair of CAVI-Convening for Action on Vancouver Island, in his annual report to the membership of the Partnership for Water Sustainability in BC.
“The depth of experience within the CAVI group has enabled it to intuitively know what works and why. However, a watershed moment came in 2010 / 2011 as a response to a request from the development community for (more) tangible deliverables and a shift towards ‘action’. This transition has been instrumental in dialogue around the initiative launched in 2013 and branded as VI2065: The Vision for Vancouver Island in 50 Years.”
“It is hoped that while CAVI continues to build on its success through inter-regional sharing and dialogue, we will also be able to move that success to another level. To a large extent, success has been based on collaboration within each of the CAVI regions. By building on the essential concept of thinking and planning on a watershed basis, timing is right to integrate and expand this concept as the foundation of the ‘vision’ for Vancouver Island.”
