pgcg_2015_support_300px.jpgIn just two years, Prince George and Northern BC will host the 2015 Canada Winter Games — the largest multi-sporting and cultural event ever to be held in the region.

This is an exciting time as people come together to prepare for the big event.

Now is also the ideal time to explore how the Games can be leveraged to make the region even stronger and more sustainable in the years ahead. The Sustainabiltiy and Legacy Summit, coming to Prince George on October 10, offers that opportunity.

This is a must-attend event for anyone who works to encourage local business development, healthier and more active communities, social enterprise, arts and culture, air quality, waste reduction and carbon management or other sustainability initiatives.

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
