Help shape the future of the region by sharing your thoughts with other local experts on innovative solutions to challenging regional issues.
Partnering with Chambers of Commerce and Boards of Trade across Metro Vancouver, the Future of the Region Sustainability Dialogues is an outreach component of the Sustainable Region Initiative (SRI). As the title implies, this series of high-profile debates and discussions is intended to help decision makers shape the future of the region by presenting a range of views which hopefully challenge and stimulate fresh thought on a range of regional issues.
“Our dialogue sessions generate a wealth of information that will help us all — politicians, business, community advocates and citizens alike as we work towards a sustainable future for Metro Vancouver,” said Metro Vancouver Board Chair Greg Moore. “Expert panellists and highly–engaged participants have provided fresh and stimulating perspectives on regional issues and while Metro Vancouver may not be able to tackle all the challenges on its own, it can certainly serve as a catalyst in identifying actions and working, with partners, towards their implementation”.
In 2012 Metro Vancouver will host dialogue sessions throughout the region in Vancouver, South of the Fraser, the Central/Northeast Sector and the North Shore.
