Green Infrastructure Partnership Announces Greater Vancouver Schedule for


The projected growth of the Greater Vancouver region and resulting cumulative impacts are drivers for reassessing how land is developed, and water is used. To facilitate changes related to infrastructure policies and practices, the Green Infrastructure Partnership is collaborating with Metro Vancouver (formerly the Greater Vancouver Regional District), two member municipalities and UniverCity to present Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation In Greater Vancouver: The 2007 Series. The venues and dates for the three events in the 2007 Series are:

  • Delta – September 21
  • Langley Township – October 5
  • UniverCity – October 19

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.
