Successful opposition to mining operations all share a common element: the
creation of alternative economic development plans. The effectiveness of this strategy
has been proven in many communities in South and Central America. It can work here.
Why risk our beautiful islands and our established industries for jobs that won’t even last
one generation? We can choose jobs and the environment. We can create economic
opportunities that are beneficial to our communities and are restorative not destructive.
We can create jobs that last many generations into the future.
Please join us for a refreshing and creative discussion of community economic
development. Vancouver Island Permaculture is offering two half day seminars on
“Economic Development that doesn’t Cost the Earth: A Permaculture Approach to
Community Development” as part of its ongoing Developing Sustainability series.
