In June 2010, Leadership BC-Central Vancouver Island and the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance (VIEA), sponsored by BC Hydro, hosted the ‘Dialogue in Nanaimo’.
“The key theme of the day was 'What can we do together for Vancouver Island to become a flagship model of fresh water sustainability?',” states Kathy Bishop, Curriculum Chair with Leadership BC Central Vancouver Island.
At the ‘Dialogue in Nanaimo’, the network of ‘Convening for Action in BC’ partners launched Beyond the Guidebook 2010: Implementing a New Culture for Urban Watershed Protection and Restoration in British Columbia.
“Beyond the Guidebook 2010 describes how water sustainability can and will be achieved through implementation of green infrastructure policies and practices. Getting there relies on a change in mind-set,” states John Finnie, Chair of Convening for Action on Vancouver Island.
