BLUE ECOLOGY VIDEO 2: “When collaboration is a common or shared value, the right mix of people and perspectives will create the conditions for change. We need a paradigm-shift in the way we do things,” said Fin Donnelly – Member of Parliament, founder & Chair of the Rivershed Society of British Columbia

Note to Reader:

In the Blue Ecology Workshop in November 2017, Member of Parliament Fin Donnelly teamed with the Partnership for Water Sustainability’s Ted van der Gulik, the CBC’s Bob McDonald (host, Quirks & Quarks) and Michael Blackstock (creator of the Blue Ecology paradigm) to share their unique and complementary perspectives on a water-first approach. The Fraser River was a centrepiece for the workshop program.

Kim Stephens, Executive Director of the Partnership for Water Sustainability, was the workshop faciliator/moderator.
