FLASHBACK TO 2011: “Simply put, we believe if we respect the land, water sustainability will follow. Getting there requires a change in mind-set and land ethic,” stated Kim Stephens at the FCM Sustainable Communities Conference held in Victoria, BC
At the 2011 FCM Sustainable Communities Conference, eight innovators shared their breakthrough examples of municipal sustainability in a range of sectors. The format was interactive, which allowed participants to share and learn from each other. “Kim Stephens provided a water perspective. His takeaway message was that water sustainability will be achieved through green infrastructure policies and practices. There was a great deal of excitement and energy in the room and delegates were very engaged during the roundtable discussion,” stated Azzah Jeena.
