British Columbia is home to nearly 450 environmental groups, over half of which are working on freshwater protection. These NGOs comprise a movement diverse in geography and approach.
Freshwater sustainability is one of our core focus areas at the Real Estate Foundation of BC. That’s why we joined with the POLIS Project on Ecological Governance at the University of Victoria to publish a new reporton the state of the water movement in BC. This post looks at the people and organizations that make up BC's water community.
The Real Estate Foundation Board of Governors meets quarterly to review and approve grants, and hold board meetings. Each summer we take these meetings on the road – to visit a different area of the province, meet with people and experience first-hand some of the work we have funded.
The Real Estate Foundation is pleased to announce the keynote presentation for this year's gala, "Complex Choices for a Sustainable Future: Connecting Business, Land and Community in the Okanagan." Speaker: Tony Stewart, CEO, Quails' Gate Winery
The Real Estate Foundation approved a total of 29 grants totalling $1,135,074 at the April 2013 meeting. This includes $375,000 for seven Real Estate Industry Grants. The projects are listed in alphabetical order, by recipient organization.
