The British Columbia Experience

“There is growing national and international interest in the British Columbia experience and our lessons learned in moving from talk to action in implementing green infrastructure practices that lead to water sustainability,” explains Kim Stephens, Program Coordinator for the Water Sustainability Action Plan for British Columbia.

Kim stephens - 2009 (120p)“We were asked to tell our story at Resilient Cities: Urban Strategies for Transition Times in October 2009.  We told it in three parts: vision, education and tools.”

“On Vancouver Island we are demonstrating how to set the vision based upon community values, support the vision with information and education via the Water Bucket website, and apply a suite of web-based water management tools to make better decisions.”
