2014 Annual General Meeting: Report from CAVI Chair reflects on a vision for Vancouver Island in 50 years



Inter-Regional Collaboration & A Vision for Vancouver Island

“Since the launch of CAVI in 2006, the primary focus has been information sharing and education,” wrote Derek Richmond, Chair of CAVI-Convening for Action on Vancouver Island, in his annual report to the membership of the Partnership for Water Sustainability in BC.

Derek-Richmond_Oct-2011_120p“The depth of experience within the CAVI group has enabled it to intuitively know what works and why. However, a watershed moment came in 2010 / 2011 as a response to a request from the development community for (more) tangible deliverables and a shift towards ‘action’. This transition has been instrumental in dialogue around the initiative launched in 2013 and branded as VI2065: The Vision for Vancouver Island in 50 Years.”

“It is hoped that while CAVI continues to build on its success through inter-regional sharing and dialogue, we will also be able to move that success to another level. To a large extent, success has been based on collaboration within each of the CAVI regions. By building on the essential concept of thinking and planning on a watershed basis, timing is right to integrate and expand this concept as the foundation of the ‘vision’ for Vancouver Island.”
