From our very first planning sessions, the OSLC believed that it was essential to involve community activists, civic leaders, researchers and academicians, business and industry partners, and First Nations representatives in our mission.
We vowed to foster a culture of collaboration, innovation, inclusiveness and diversity; balancing social, environmental and economic priorities to bring about positive change. The Okanagan is a single unified watershed. We are literally united by water.
The cause of fostering earth stewardship can bring our communities closer together to develop creative solutions, embrace indigenous knowledge, and promote sustainable development. We invite you to join us in this mission by sharing your stories, research papers and reports, providing events for our community calendar, and inviting citizens to participate in sustainability initiatives.
