Move from Awareness to Action

According to John Finnie, CAVI Chair from 2006 through 2011: “If we are to control our destiny and create our future, then we need to challenge our fellow Vancouver Islanders to visualize what they want John finnie (120 pixels)Vancouver Island to look like in 50 years. We have identified two desired outcomes in Convening for Action. First, we wish to influence Vancouver Island local governments to adopt Design with Nature as the preferred process of approving land development applications. Secondly, we intend to facilitate the move from awareness to action in changing the way that land is developed and water is used on Vancouver Island.”
