SYMPOSIUM ON PLANNING FOR RESILIENCE: “Collaborate and ‘design with nature’ to adapt to climate change,” urged Kim Stephens in a panel presentation on ‘Uncertain Water Supplies’ at the University of British Columbia (March 2010)
Uncertain Water Supplies
The School of Community and Regional Planning at UBC (SCARP) held its 2nd Annual Symposium in March 2010. The program included a water panel discussion about Increasing the Resiliency of Development to Water Crises.
Living Water Smart in British Columbia
Kim Stephens, Program Coordinator, represented the Water Sustainability Action Plan for British Columbia on the panel.
“The storyline for my SCARP presentation comprised three parts. In the first part, my objective was to capture audience attention and quickly build to the Design with Nature mind-map.”
“Then I stepped back to introduce five Georgia Basin initiatives that demonstrate action on the ground by local governments.”
“I concluded on a philosophical note by quoting the epitaph from an 18th century tombstone in England. It is crucial to have a vision, but at the same time you have to be grounded.”
