Local Governments in the Cowichan Basin Showcase Green Infrastructure Innovation
Second of three events focuses on role of partnerships in moving a vision from concept to reality
The 2007 Showcasing Innovation Series comprised three one-day events. Each was structured as presentations in the morning and a tour of project sites in the afternoon.
The second event in the series of three was co-hosted by the Cowichan Valley Regional District, District of North Cowichan, and City of Duncan on September 28. The Cowichan event was titled Partnerships and Collaboration – Moving from Concept to Reality.
John Finnie, Chair of Convening for Action on Vancouver Island, reports that close to 50 people registered for the Cowichan event. “Our expectations are being exceeded. When we look at who registered, we are struck by the diversity of the audience. There were representatives from four regional districts, ten municipalities, two provincial ministries, a number of private sector organizations, and several non-government organizations,” Finnie explained.
“We had a great mix of people and perspectives. We had elected representatives, senior managers, and on-the-ground practitioners,” he added.
