Getting started…

In 2012 a group of colleagues at West Kootenay EcoSociety began conversations with regional thought leaders about how best to build sustainability in the West Kootenay (the area including all of the RDKB and RDCK). The conclusion: We can make better progress working together toward common goals than we can working separately toward individual goals – an idea recently proven in a number of Canadian communities.

As a result, West Kootenay Environmental Centre, a newly registered Charity, was formed for the purpose of supporting the region’s sustainability community. Once the sustainability community has self-selected its leaders, the Charity’s current, interim board will pass governance to them.
