Live-Streaming of Watersheds 2014: Fraser Basin Council hosts regional satellite events in Vancouver, Chilliwack and Quesnel on January 27


Note to Reader:

In January, the POLIS Project is teaming up with the Department of Geography at the University of Victoria and Brock University’s Environmental Sustainability Research Centre to present “Watersheds 2014: Towards Watershed Governance in British Columbia & Beyond”. Commencing on January 27, this three-day forum is designed to support skills development and capacity-building for watershed groups, First Nations, and community watershed champions and leaders.


A forum for water practitioners, watershed groups, First Nations, and other decision-makers

The venue for the forum is the Quw’utsun’ Cultural and Conference Centre in the City of Duncan, Vancouver Island. The Fraser Basin Council is partnering with the forum hosts to live-stream the first day of the event for those who are not able to attend the event in Duncan.

“This satellite forum is a perfect fit for watershed groups, natural resource managers, researchers and decision-makers in all orders of government, including First Nations,” said Amy Greenwood, Assistant Program Manager with the Fraser Basin Council.

Amy-Greenwood_Fraser-Basin-Council_120pWe’re looking forward to welcoming watershed stewards to our live streaming events in Vancouver, Chilliwack and Quesnel on Monday, January 27th. These community-based events will be a great opportunity to capture some of the action at the Forum for those who could not travel to Duncan, and also to network with a diverse range of stewards and watershed-governance folks from throughout the region”.

“This interactive session will build on recent watershed workshops hosted by the Fraser Basin Council in Fort Langley and New Westminster and has been made possible with funding from the Living Rivers Trust.”

“These live streaming events are free to attend and will run from 9am until 3pm in Vancouver, Chilliwack and Quesnel.”
