Getting Ready for Northern Voice

As some of you know, I’m heading off to the Northern Voice conference in Vancouver next weekend. I received a $500 bursary to attend, which will cover car hire, registration and accommodation.  I’m stoked to be able to attend, and am looking forward to meeting some new friends, particularly Canadian Bloggers. I’d love to know if any of you are going to be there. This is a photo of last years t-shirt…

I’ve spent very little time in Vancouver, so I’m pretty keen to see the city and have a look around. I’ve got quite a drive on Friday, from Castlegar to Vancouver, the conference on Saturday, then back home on Sunday. Fridays aren’t an issue for me, as I only work four days a week.

In other news, I’ve got several posts rumbling around my head about sustainability and the future of BC, Canada, and I’m thrilled by the number of emails I’m getting with questions, particularly from graduates. As always, if you’ve got a question about Civil Engineering, development or sustainability, let me know, cause I love comments and questions!

On another note, I love reading and getting new books, so if you know of anyone who is publishing a book on sustainability, development or environmental principles, send them here, and I’ll happily post a review as part of the book launch or buzz building campaign.

Anyway, just a weekend update post, things are starting to get busy here, with work, buying a house, finding a church, but we’re still having fun!
