Communication and collaboration key on Vancouver Island, reports Eric Bonham

In his Summer 2009 report to the membership of the BC Water & Waste Association (BCWWA), Eric Bonham reviewed the successes of CAVI (Convening for Action on Vancouver Island) and the Vancouver Island Chapter of the BCWWA.

In the article, Eric Bonham writes that addressing the question “What do we want Vancouver Island to look like in 50years” calls for innovative approaches based upon partnerships and multi-disciplinary involvement, that draws a wide range of players to the common task of working towards a collective vision.
“What we want Vancouver Island to look like in 50 years” will be a result of collaboration of local communities and regional districts reaching beyond their own jurisdictional boundaries and responsibilities to embrace the “bigger picture” of designing human settlement in harmony with nature throughout Vancouver Island.
