Each success builds on the last, and paves the way for the next.

John finnie (120p)“The Learning Lunch series is precedent-setting. It came to fruition because of the commitment, the energy and the dedication of our local government partners in three regional districts – Cowichan, Comox and Nanaimo,” states John Finnie, CAVI Chair, in the Preface to the report on the 2008 Series.

“We have endeavoured to weave a seamless storyline that shows how the Learning Lunch series fits into a bigger picture; and how the program elements that comprise Convening for Action on Vancouver Island are linked. Each success builds on the last, and paves the way for the next.”
