Solutions Forum 2012: Water Gathering: Collaborative Watershed Governance in B.C. and Beyond

January 26 - 27, 2012

UBC Robson Square
Vancouver, B.C.

Watersheds 2012, “Water Gathering: Collaborative Watershed Governance in B.C. and Beyond” was a two-day forum, held at UBC Robson Square in Vancouver, British Columbia from January 26th to 27th, 2012. 

Watersheds 2012 aimed to gather and engage key players working on and interested in collaborative watershed governance in an effective process that would successfully respond to the challenges and opportunities of watershed governance. This gathering was not a conference but a shared exploration of how to build and maintain successful collaborative processes to govern our watersheds. The Solutions Forum was designed to yield practical results, to build new and strengthen existing networks in watershed governance, and to provide participants with knowledge and practical skills that will benefit current collaborative processes. The goal was to share participants’ collective experiences and, in workshops, engage those with widely-recognized expertise in addressing practical challenges.
