Event Description
Thursday, November 19, 2020 - 10:00 to Thursday, December 3, 2020 - 11:30 3rd Annual Vancouver Island Symposium on Water Stewardship in a Changing Climate

The Third Annual Vancouver Island Symposium on Water Stewardship in a Changing Climate will be delivered by video on YouTube as a series of three “Watershed Moments”

In the age of COVID, thought leaders must find new ways to connect with and inspire an audience. But how do you inspire someone over a computer? Addressing this challenge was the starting point for “Watershed Moments, the Video Trilogy Series”.
 
It moves well beyond a Zoom webinar by using YouTube to provide a viewer experience that will be comparable to viewing an engaging TED Talk.  
 
The focus of the Video Trilogy Series is on the whole-system approach, connecting land and water, and restoring water balance in altered landscapes. At the conclusion of each video, viewers will be able to chat in real-time with the presentation team.
 
 
The Registration Fee for the series is a nominal amount - $30 for stewardship groups and $50 for all others!

Monday, April 12, 2021 - 09:00 to Wednesday, June 30, 2021 - 14:30 Renewable Energy Transition Strategies – Practical Innovations for Urban Areas

The global transition from fossil fuels to renewable and clean energy is gaining momentum, and cities and urban areas are at the forefront of this movement. Local governments around the world have set ambitious 100% renewable energy targets and significant progress has been made towards these goals in leading jurisdictions. However, a full transition to clean and renewable energy is no easy task. It requires moving forward collaboratively with senior governments, utilities, other local governments, the private sector, and the public. City leaders need to be equipped with practical knowledge to work effectively in partnerships across sectors and different levels of decision-making.
