‘Green Value’ strategy for Vancouver Island launched at the ‘Creating Our Future Workshop’


The Creating Our Future Workshop  that was held on June 3rd in conjunction with the Gaining Ground Summit was the kick-off event in a strategy to persuade local governments on Vancouver Island to adopt “green value” approaches to planning for and accommodating settlement growth.  The Real Estate Foundation hosted the workshop under the umbrella of the Convening for Action on Vancouver Island (CAVI) Partnership.

Tim pringle (60 pixels), april 2007“Our goal is to have at least two local governments per year adopt a green value approach to approving development applications and project designs. A commitment to water sustainability is part of an overall green value strategy”, notes Tim Pringle, Executive Director of the Real Estate Foundation.
