Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference showcases “Mission Possible: Convening for Action in British Columbia”
“A decade ago, the Province of British Columbia made a conscious decision to follow an educational rather than prescriptive path to change practices for the use and conservation of land and water. Practical research and new tools are now enabling engineers, planners and other disciplines to do business differently. It is about turning the whole game around to collaborate as regional teams and design with nature.”
“A provincial goal is settlement change that is in balance with ecology. Use of the phrase ‘design with nature’ is facilitating a paradigm-shift in the local government setting. Our Mission Possible forum will showcase guiding principles for creating change on the ground.”
“We are approaching maximum capacity at the venue,” reports Jennie Wang, Strategic Integration and Partnerships Division, Environment Canada. She advises that early registration has exceeded expectations; and urges those who have not yet registered to do so NOW.
