Sustainable Cities International Welcomes Campbell River to our Network!

The City of Campbell River, British Columbia, the third largest city on Vancouver Island, has joined the Sustainable Cities International Network. At a meeting held 28th June, City Council voted unanimously to sign an MOU with the Network.

With the appointment of their Sustainability Manager, Amber Zirnhelt, in 2010, Campbell River has been actively pursuing sustainability initiatives including a sustainability review of their current official community plan, a community energy and emissions plan and award-winning projects such as a green roof on the Council building.

Patricia Gordon, the Director of the Sustainable Cities International Network attended the Council meeting and earlier in the day met with City staff to share experiences on sustainable community planning. Pat said, “Campbell River will be a great asset to the Network. It is a city that has embraced sustainable development in a comprehensive way. They are open to sharing their experiences as well as learning from others. We welcome them into our Network”.
