Forests and Communities for the Future: The Sustainability Connection
Sat, 22 April 2017, 1:45 PM – 5:00 PM PDT
Ann Mortifee, Order of Canada recipient, singer/songwriter, author, and founder of the Trust for Sustainable Forestry, longtime sustainable forestry consultant Ray Travers, Kathleen Code of the new Wildwood/Ecoforestry Institute team, and Ancient Forest Alliance Campaigner & Photographer TJ Watt will share in a multi-media presentation on sustainable forestry and living forest communities.
This new paradigm is needed to replace the destructive environmental, social and economic impacts of the current system of forest management and tenuring on the public and private lands of Vancouver Island. The intention is to create a vision of an ideal future of truly sustainable forestry and sustainable communities committed to stewarding the forests, and to identify the actions needed to realize this vision.
Ann Mortifee will also enrich the afternoon with her songs and a reading from her book In Love with the Mystery against a background of stunning imagery by international, award winning photographer Frances Litman.
This inspiring afternoon will complete with audience participation to set the context for The Future of Sustainable Forests and Communities in BC, and as an umbrella teaching model for Vancouver Island and the world.
