*The following event has been postponed. New date to be confirmed.

Two years ago, no one could have imagined the changes we have seen in how we live our daily lives. Covid, fires, a heat dome, and now unprecedented rain and flooding are challenging us to adapt and innovate in ways we would not have expected, changing how we live, work and play. What does the future hold for our communities? How can we become more resilient to environmental shocks and prepare for the impact of novel technologies? Engaged and informed community governance, planning and strategies are essential to ensure we have the capacity to adapt and the infrastructure we need to sustain healthy communities in the future. 

This session brings together a panel representing diverse governance, social and corporate perspectives that are key to shaping our infrastructure and collective future. It will focus on the issues, strategies and challenges we face in planning for the future, and what success might look like for Kelowna in 25 years. 

Please join us at the Waterfront Ballroom of the Manteo at Eldorado Resort (3762 Lakeshore Road, Kelowna, B.C.) on January 13 as we recommence in-person events with a topic that is so critical for our community.


** In compliance with the current orders of B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer, proof of full vaccination is required for entry to this indoor seated event. Vaccine cards and photo ID will be checked at registration.
