VANCOUVER ISLAND 2065 – Announcing a New Initiative to Foster Collaboration Focused on Economy and Ecology
Vancouver Island 2065: “Economy and Ecology – A Necessary Partnership for Water Sustainability”
Vancouver Island 2065 is a partnership initiative of Convening for Action on Vancouver Island (CAVI) and the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance (VIEA). Vancouver Island 2065 calls for collaborative and effective relationships amongst key stakeholders island-wide in order to achieve a vision for settlement, economy and ecology in balance.
“Our three-year old partnership with CAVI is a direct outcome from VIEA’s 2010 ‘Link Project’ in which stakeholders all over Vancouver Island were interviewed to identify common issues and opportunities,” states George Hanson, VIEA President. “And now, VIEA/CAVI are pleased to announce this new initiative in cooperation with Royal Roads University.”
“As our economy diversities, our communities grow, and our population expands, we must find ways of working together so that we will balance the inevitable demands of growth with the equally important issue of protecting our coveted and life-sustaining natural environment. We believe that Vancouver Island 2065 is an important step towards increasing awareness as well as inter-regional cooperation.”
