Hi, I’m Karina, a somewhat shy but nonetheless enthusiastic high school student passionate about the environment. I’ve felt drawn to nature,and preserving it, my whole life. When I was in the first grade I found out that a forest near my house was going to be cut down to allow for the development of townhomes. To stop this frightening act, myself and my closest friends decided we would dress up as woodland creatures, make signs, and go to the build site for a protest. I chose to dress as my favorite woodland creature: a unicorn.
Less than a year ago, in October of 2018, the BCSEA Vancouver Chapter gathered together 30 aspiring entrepreneurs for an event titled “HallowHacks” to find solutions to the sustainable energy challenges of today’s world. This two-day long team competition featured loud brainstorming sessions, resourceful mentors, top-tier competition judges, good food to fuel the brains, and of course, fabulous prizes to be won.
The BC Utilities Commission, after consultation with stakeholders, has approved without hearing a two-year extension to the pricing principles for BC Hydro's Transmission Service Rate (TSR) (i.e. the two-tiered inclining block rate serving large industrial customers).
On March 20th, the BCSEA Kamloops Chapter hosted an event called The Power of Sustainable Investing, in partnership with Transition Kamloops, Thompson Rivers University Sustainability Office and the speaker, Tim Nash. The session was highly informative, generating interest, excitement, and engaging discussion. The 35 minutes talk (PowerPoint slides attached below), was followed by an equally well-received half an hour of Q&A. About half of the seventy attendees stayed for a break-out session.
A transition from seaplane to e-plane is set to begin.
Harbour Air is embarking on what is believed to be a world first, adding an electric plane to its fleet — a zero-emission aircraft powered by a 750-horsepower electric motor.
The company has 42 planes and 12 routes, and operates from centres such as Victoria, Vancouver and Seattle. It is North America’s largest seaplane airline, serving 500,000 passengers on 30,000 commercial flights every year.
Victoria, BC – Victorians for Transportation Choice (VTC) challenges the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to align its southern Vancouver Island transportation strategy with BC’s climate action goals, including legislated GHG reduction targets.
