Convening for Action to Change the Way We Develop Land: “Designing with Nature” explained
At Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation in the Township of Langley in October 2007, Raymond Fung delivered an opening statement that outlined why the Green Infrastructure Partnership is promoting a “design with nature” approach to infrastructure policies and practices. In his overview remarks, he highlighted how the Green Infrastructure Partnership is collaborating with local governments to provide a unique forum for them to tell their stories.
According to Ray Fung, “All of us have attended workshops, seminars and conferences where we simply sit and listen all day. And at the end of the day, we go back to our offices and we carry on doing what we were doing.”
“Convening for action…when we are convening in a forum such as today, however, it is not just for the sake of listening,” he continued, “Rather, when we leave here today we want to use what we have learned so that we can take action and make a difference in our professional lives. That difference is to change the way we develop land.”
