Vancouver Island Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation Series a success – 2007 program resonates
Series of three events attracts local governments and other stakeholders from Campbell River south to Victoria
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 promote a new way-of-thinking related to infrastructure policies and practices, CAVI-Convening for Action on Vancouver Island organized Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation on Vancouver Island: The 2007 Series.
Each event was co-hosted by a regional district and one or more of its member muncipalites. Each event comprised presentations in the morning and a tour of project sites in the afternoon. Each event was unique.
“A Showcasing Innovation event is not a conference. Neither is it a workshop nor seminar in the conventional sense. Rather the purpose of the presentations is to whet the appetites of participants for the site tour that follows. The quality one-on-one conversations take place on the bus and when we go for a walkabout,” reports Kim Stephens, Series organizer and event Moderator.
