UVic Community Mapping Collaboratory Update
It has been a productive and exciting Fall! We’ve made great progress setting up the Community Mapping lab in UVic’s Geography Department and production of the CRD Community Green Map. The next few months will see more focused attention on the impacts of community mapping under the leadership of Geography professors Jon Corbett (UBC) and Rosaline Canessa (UVic), and development of the national and global networks with other universities and the Green Map System.

What is the Cascadia Sustainability Field School Experience?
Each summer the Cascadia Sustainability Field School provides UVic students an opportunity to travel down the coast and learn about the inspiring efforts towards social justice and environmental sustainability in our region. The Cascadia Sustainability Experience evolved out of the students' and instructors' desire to share experiences and insights from the field. On the trips we have shot hundreds of hours of video trying to capture the stories, insights and hands-on efforts of the amazing, creative people in our region making a difference. The videos on this site are offered in a spirit of giving back to the community; to inspire - to teach - to cultivate new ways of living in this region!
