NOTE TO READER:
The edition of Waterbucket eNews published on June 22, 2021 introduced a new resource that is available on the Water-Centric Planning community-of-interest: Living Water Smart in British Columbia: The Series.
Living Water Smart in British Columbia: The Series
“The June 22, 2021 edition brought to a close the September 2020 through June 2021 season of the Waterbucket eNews weekly newsletter series. During this period, the Partnership for Water Sustainability published 34 feature stories. Many readers tell us that they are inspired by the stories that we share,” stated Kim Stephens, Waterbucket eNews Editor and Executive Director, Partnership for Water Sustainability in British Columbia.
“Each week, we celebrate the leadership of individuals and organizations who are guided by the vision for Living Water Smart, British Columbia’s Water Plan. Released in 2008, Living Water Smart was the provincial government’s call to action, and to this day transcends governments.”
“Building greener communities is a foundation piece for adapting to a changing climate. This requires ‘design with nature’ solutions that reconnect people, land, fish, and water in altered landscapes. “
“Feature stories published weekly on Waterbucket eNews constitute a legacy resource. To make them readily accessible and sharable, many of these stories are now downloadable as report-style documents. In the Living Water Smart Series, featured authors explore specific themes, with an objective of helping others make a difference in the communities in which they live.”
“With Living Water Smart as its starting point, the Partnership has a primary goal, to build bridges of understanding and pass the baton from the past to the present and future. The Living Water Smart Series is an integral part of the knowledge-transfer process.”
