Sustainability Dialogues

Help shape the future of the region by sharing your thoughts with other local experts on innovative solutions to challenging regional issues. A key component of Metro Vancouver’s outreach and stakeholder engagement, the Future of the Region Sustainability Dialogues has facilitated dynamic discussions on key regional issues over the years, from housing to transportation, livability to waste and social connectedness.

“Our dialogue sessions generate a wealth of information that will help us all — politicians, business, community advocates and citizens alike as we work towards a sustainable future for Metro Vancouver,” said Metro Vancouver Board Chair Greg Moore. “Expert panellists and highly–engaged participants have provided fresh and stimulating perspectives on regional issues and while Metro Vancouver may not be able to tackle all the challenges on its own, it can certainly serve as a catalyst in identifying actions and working, with partners, towards their implementation”.

Metro 2040 is the regional federation’s collective plan for managing growth in the region – including containing and focusing growth, and protecting important lands like greenspaces and employment lands. This update to the regional growth strategy, referred to as<em> Metro 2050</em>, will make it more effective and resilient to change. It will also do more to consider social equity and climate change in our communities, the impacts of growth policies, and how to better protect the places we care about.</p><p>Join us at one, or all four, Dialogues to hear about the update, ask questions, and share your perspectives to help us plan the future of the region. We will provide an overview of <em>Metro 2050 </em>and focus discussion on different elements of the strategy at each location, while maintaining a full regional perspective.
