Electrifying Our Region
March 14, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am
There are an estimated 8,000 electric vehicles in BC. These numbers may seem small compared with the millions of vehicles registered, but growth is tracking in the double-digits on a year-over-year basis. With significantly fewer emissions and lower operating costs, electric vehicles have the potential to benefit climate change and affordability – two important goals in our region.
Join us to hear about exciting and innovative initiatives that support uptake of electric vehicles in B.C.
Metro Vancouver’s Sustainability Community Breakfasts is a series of monthly breakfast meetings that focuses on regional sustainability issues. They provide an opportunity to increase awareness and understanding of current topics, to bring together individuals and organizations interested in sustainability, and to build networks and partnerships. The Sustainability Community Breakfasts were originally introduced to share information and build awareness leading up to the World Urban Forum 3 (WUF3), hosted in Metro Vancouver in June 2006.
The Breakfasts cover a range of topics that appeal to individuals across all sectors: private, public, academic and not-for-profit. They begin at 7:30 am and finish at 9 am, and typically feature one or more presentations that focus on current projects and priorities in the region. Following the breakfast, participants are encouraged to stay for informal networking and discussions about sustainability topics and trends to help expand awareness and engagement with these issues.
