Many people are looking for a powerful new vision that will inspire our hearts, guide our actions and help us build a better world. They are looking for big, bold new ideas on everything from energy-efficient, affordable homes and neighbourhoods to sustainable food and farming; creating an economy that puts the well-being of people first; and ways to create the energy we need without fracking our future. As we seek solutions for the threats of global climate change, many are asking how we can design a transportation system that gets us where we want to go without frying our atmosphere.
Can we, together, imagine a future where every business plan includes the well-being of our community; where ending poverty and revitalizing our democracy underlies politics at all levels?
Yes, we can! Come and hear Guy Dauncey’s presentation on Imagining a Green Sustainable Comox Valley and share your vision of how we can create a community vision that includes our well-being, a healthy planet and a sustaining world for our children and their children.
“I work with the Council of Canadians because we believe that a better world is possible if we just plan for it,” says Linda Safford of the Comox Valley Council of Canadians. “The thing that really excites me about hearing from Guy Dauncey is that he also has plans to create a better world, and he will be sharing them with the Comox Valley community.”
