Fresh Outlook Foundation is hosting its 7th Building SustainABLE Communities (BSC) conference in Kelowna, BC. This highly acclaimed and hugely popular event gathers people from all sectors to explore emerging trends in sustainability at the individual, organizational, and community scales.

At a previous BSC, 600 delegates from more than 80 communities, representing government, business, and the nonprofit and academic sectors attended.

The overarching theme for this year’s event is Innovation Through Collaboration, with sub-themes being climate action, water stewardship, food security, and community capital/infrastructure. Other topics we’ll tackle include active transportation, community health, comprehensive wealth, collaborative change, pollution solutions, sustainable development, leadership and governance, and local prosperity.

Join speakers, panelists, sponsors, and other delegates during engaging workshops, game-changing plenary presentations, professionally facilitated breakouts, and abundant networking functions. Dan Wilson and Shannon Gordon from the Centre will both be speaking at the event. Experience the SustainAbility Village, where you’ll meet experts, activists, and exhibitors, while seeing sustainability through the eyes of children, youth, artists, musicians, and poets!
