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.

“For this reason, the Water Sustainability Committee was asked to provide a knowledge-transfer module at Resilient Cities: Urban Strategies for Transition Times in October 2009. This provided us with a platform to tell our story.”

“We had a 4-person presentation team. My role was narrator. This role entailed setting the scene and connecting the dots between vision, education and tools. After that, Eric Bonham, Mike Tanner and Ted van der Gulik elaborated on each of these three elements of the story.”
