Convening for Action in the Comox Valley
December 2, 2008: “Here’s a small, telling moment. One of my recent fave organizations (Convening for Action Vancouver Island [CAVI] – more on them at www.waterbucket.ca) was hosting a local 'learning lunch' about better 'rainwater management practices'. The audience: planners, engineers, fisheries cops, and NGOs,” writes Hans Peter Meyer on his blog about Change, Community, Technology, Home.
“The 'telling moment' was a cameo appearance by the CAO and a gaggle of newly elected Mayors. I used to have a green-eyed girl in my life, so I already knew how sexy 'green' can be; but these folks are just waking up to the fact. And they were making sure that we got the picture: new Mayors + CAO + 'green' infrastructure 'learning lunch' = way cool sexy.”
“A few years ago this group wouldn’t have known about the luncheon workshop; they certainly wouldn’t have bothered to grace us with their presence.”
