Vancouver Island Partnership Announces Schedule for ‘2007 Showcasing Innovation Series’


The projected growth of Vancouver Island and resulting cumulative impacts are drivers for reassessing where and how land is developed, and water is used. To facilitate changes related to infrastructure policies and practices, the Green Infrastructure Partnership is supporting the Convening for Action on Vancouver Island (CAVI) Partnership in presenting Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation on Vancouver Island: The 2007 Series. The venues and dates for the three events in the 2007 Series are:

  • Nanaimo Region – September 14
  • Cowichan Basin – September 28
  • Comox Valley – October 12

The purpose of the Showcasing Innovation Series is to celebrate… and build on…the on-the-ground successes that are enhancing the ways communities are being developed and water is being managed. For more information on the 2007 Series, please click here.

The Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation program was launched in May 2006 as a pilot in the Greater Vancouver region. It is designed for engineering, planning, land development, operations, and environmental departments in municipalities. The Showcasing Innovation program is organized as a workshop in the morning followed by field tour in the afternoon.
