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

January 26 - 27, 2012

UBC Robson Square
Vancouver, B.C.

Imagine engaging all interests and governments in an effective collaborative process that successfully responds to the challenges and opportunities of watershed governance. This was the primary purpose for gathering key players working on and interested in collaborative 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.
