Burrard Inlet Science Symposium & Yes Agenda Summit Videos and Slides
The Burrard Inlet Science Symposium was a day-long event that brought together First Nations, and scientists and resource managers from local, provincial, federal, academic, and environmental institutions. The objectives were to discuss Indigenous and western science, and work toward identification of strategies and tactics that will improve the overall health and integrity of the inlet, as well as to solicit and confirm commitment by interested parties to progress collaborative and coordinated action.
We unveiled the updated Burrard Inlet Action Plan, provided a status report on action plan implementation, and examined the cumulative environmental, cultural, and human health effects of historic changes in the environment.
You can find video of all presentations as well as accompanying slide shows below.
