Island Connections is a not-for-profit project affiliated with a Gabriola-based organization called Island Futures. The aim is to connect Gulf Islanders interested in fostering sustainable ways of living through a sharing of information and ideas, facilitated by a network of privately owned boats.
The third annual Island Futures Gulf Island Gathering is set for August 7-9 at Montague Harbour Provincial Park on Galiano. The group campsite and pavilion has been reserved and the focus of this year’s event will be creating a space for real inter-island collaboration to take place. The day will be divided into morning and afternoon sessions which will consist of presentations to be followed by in-depth discussion. Two focus areas will be chosen from the following four possibilities: Energy, The Environment, Transportation and a Gumboot University (life skills learning centre) for the Gulf Islands. The organizers are seeking feedback so please email firstname.lastname@example.org to cast your vote, make suggestions and/or find out more about the event.
