2009 BC LAND SUMMIT Program THEME

A Better Future: Adapting to Change

The broad over-arching conference theme for the 2009 BC Land Summit is A Better Future: Adapting to Change. This theme recognizes the many different processes of change – from the global to the local – affecting land, land-use, and communities’ relationship with the land. This theme also adopts a positive, future-oriented perspective that recognizes the valuable and important need for informed adaptation as we move forward in the face of change.
Within the umbrella of the over-arching conference theme, the program will be organized into four sub-themes, outlined below.
We seek proposals for presentations, papers, workshops, media, and other unique forms of engagement – including mobile workshops, demonstration site tours, and more – that explore the many dimensions of change which are affecting land, land-use and communities across British Columbia and beyond.

Program SUB-THEMES

Changing Place & Space – Communities in Transition:

This sub-theme will focus on human settlements and the built environment, from urban centres to small towns and rural communities, and the many diverse and sometimes contradictory forces of change affecting them. Topic areas that will be covered under this sub-theme include: housing, urban design, downtown revitalization, development economics, municipal taxation, green design, small town & rural community issues, issues of locality and identity, community engagement, resource communities in the contemporary context, issues of resort development, and more.

Changing Environments – Natural & Cultural Diversity:

The sub-theme will focus on the complex diversities of people, communities and the natural environment, and the dynamic issues facing them. Topic areas that will be covered under this sub-theme include: First Nations community issues, environmental & nature conservation, connecting with nature, water issues, food security, food quality and agriculture, agricultural land regulation and global/local impacts on agricultural lands, demographic change and cultural diversity, and more.

A World of Change – Growth & Globalization:

This sub-theme will focus on the major global, dynamic issues and challenges that are affecting and impacting the land, environment and all communities and regions. Topic areas that will be covered under this sub-theme will include: climate change, economic growth issues and globalization, community durability, energy and resources, governance, and more.

Change in Motion – Movement, Transportation & Travel:

This sub-theme will focus primarily on transportation, movement and travel at every level and scale and their vital, interactive relationship with land and land-use. Topic areas that will be included under this sub-theme include: public transit, transportation infrastructure, cycling, alternate modes of transportation, goods movement, travel and tourism, pedestrianization, jobs and housing balance, green transportation and more

Francois Depey writes to tell us of this event:

The Office of the Wet'suwet'en Hereditary Chiefs invite you to participate in an All Nations Energy Summit.  All Nations addressing current energy issues including Enbridge Northern Gateway Project and the need for planning a sustainable energy future. 

ALL Nations Energy Summit
Date: June 6th 2009
Location: Moricetown Multiplex - 32 KM West of Smithers, BC

“INFORM & INSPIRE”

Keynote speakers and panelists representing all aspects of the
Northern Gateway pipeline, tanker traffic, and Alberta tar sands will
provide information to the public throughout the day to:

  • INFORM our Nations and northern communities of the potential environmental, legal, cultural and socio-economic, and cumulative impacts of proposed energy projects; look at sustainable energy options for the north and,
  • INSPIRE our Nations on asserting our rights, title and interests that would best represent our traditions, history and culture, ensuring that we are not accepting economics over impacts.

 

WE HAVE TOO MUCH TO LOSE.

“Empower First Nations right to free, prior and informed consent on developments that would impact our Rights, Title and interest on unceded lands.”

OUTCOMES:

  • Nation-to-Nation discussions addressing: “Inadequacies of environmental review processes, renewed call for independent panel, or parallel First Nation major project review process”.
  • Reiteration of the moratorium on tanker traffic.
  • Call for Moratorium on further tar sands expansion.
  • Drafting collective resolution for First Nations Leaders to sign.

Dear friends (and friends of friends) -

I am writing to invite you to the launch of my newest book: First Nations of the Pacific Northwest: Change and Tradition.  
Please pass this email on to any of your friends and contact who might be interested in attending (all events are free and open to the public).

I am excited to be a contributor on this most unique and very well produced book (hardcover, 184 pages, and with 100 finely printed colour and archival photographs).  It was put together by the Westfalian Museum for Natural History in Muenster, Germany, as part of an exhibit they did on First Nations cultures of the Pacific Northwest.  I travelled to Germany, along with some of my Nuu-chah-nulth friends (Joe, Mary and Tsimka Martin), for the opening of the exhibit.

This book has not, until now, been available in Canada.  The first section, by Prof. Alfred Hendricks, is about traditional west coast culture and the effects that European contact had on it.  The second section is a series of interviews that I did (along with accompanying portraits) of residential school survivors.  Nothing like this has ever been brought to the public in Canada, and that is why I have worked so hard to import and distribute this book in Canada.  This is something that all Canadians should have access to - and that is why I did that project in the first place.

I hope that you will be able to attend one of my launch events.  This will include a multimedia show (film and photos) about Nuu-chah-nulth traditional culture as well as about some of the issues that affect them today, as well as a talk about the book and readings.  Members of the Martin family will be present at many of the events.  

The tour kicks off in Vancouver:
Wed. June 10th, 8pm, Alma van Dusen Room, Vancouver Public Library
and the following night is in Victoria:
Thurs. June 11th, Nellie McClung branch of the Greater Victorial Public Library
and is then followed June 12th through 17th with events in:
Nanaimo, Duncan, Port Alberni, Tofino and Ucluelet.  Take a look at the full event schedule <http://jwindh.wordpress.com/books/pacific-first-nations/launch-tour-dates/> .

FGDC & GeoConnections, Canada, hosting First Nations and Tribal Government Geospatial Workshop

 

The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), in collaboration with GeoConnections, Canada, and the U.S. Federal Geographic Data Committee, will host the “First Nations and Native Tribal Government Geographic Information System Workshop” on Sunday, June 14, 2009 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Niagara Falls, NY. This workshop is a joint activity of  U.S. and Canada to promote cross-border collaboration on spatial data infrastructure.


The workshop will demonstrate the benefits that spatial data infrastructures bring to land and resource management, enhance understanding of the application of geospatial technologies to matters of importance to Aboriginal communities, and provide a networking forum to encourage future cross-border collaborations between Aboriginal and Tribal communities and also with provincial, territorial, state and federal governments.

 

The workshop is being held in conjunction with the 2009 NCAI Mid Year Meeting, June 14-17, 2009.

This book has not, until now, been available in Canada.  The first section, by Prof. Alfred Hendricks, is about traditional west coast culture and the effects that European contact had on it.  The second section is a series of interviews that I did (along with accompanying portraits) of residential school survivors.  Nothing like this has ever been brought to the public in Canada, and that is why I have worked so hard to import and distribute this book in Canada.  This is something that all Canadians should have access to - and that is why I did that project in the first place.

I hope that you will be able to attend one of my launch events.  This will include a multimedia show (film and photos) about Nuu-chah-nulth traditional culture as well as about some of the issues that affect them today, as well as a talk about the book and readings.  Members of the Martin family will be present at many of the events.  

The tour kicks off in Vancouver:
Wed. June 10th, 8pm, Alma van Dusen Room, Vancouver Public Library
and the following night is in Victoria:
Thurs. June 11th, Nellie McClung branch of the Greater Victorial Public Library
and is then followed June 12th through 17th with events in:
Nanaimo, Duncan, Port Alberni, Tofino and Ucluelet.  Take a look at the full event schedule <http://jwindh.wordpress.com/books/pacific-first-nations/launch-tour-dates/> .

Please join ESRI for the inaugural year of the Tribal / Indigenous (TRI) presentation series at the 2009 ESRI International User Conference.  The ESRI International User Conference is the largest gathering of GIS professionals globally with typically around 14,000 attendees a year.  The conference will be held in San Diego, CA July 13th – the 17th.  We've been working to illuminate the important GIS programs in Tribal and Indigenous Communities at the conference.  The result is a full day program featuring 12 distinguished and qualified presenters.  In addition to these presentations we are exploring the following activities to showcase the important use of GIS in Tribal and Indigenous Communities around the world.    

·         A Tribal / Indigenous Map Showcase in the Map Gallery (details below) which will incorporate your maps and screenshots into a display of GIS programs in Tribal and Indigenous Communities.   

·         A booth on the convention floor where you can represent your community, GIS program, and distribute maps and brochures.    

·         A Tribal / Indigenous Special Interest Group Meeting facilitated by  Tribal / Indigenous GIS Professionals to discuss important issues facing GIS in Tribal and Indigenous communities.

Also, the ESRI Graphics team will be building a dedicated display in the Map Gallery for Tribal / Indigenous GIS.  I need your help to make this showcase a success, please let me know if you will be able to contribute a map, or a screenshot, to the display and I will respond with the details of how to submit your work to the ESRI FTP site.  It takes some time to pull these displays together so I need to ask for you to submit your work as soon as possible, although we will have until the end of April to get everything in.  Our graphics team does exceptional work and this display of Tribal / Indigenous GIS will look amazing and drive a lot of discussion and interest in your work.  Please note, while we hope everyone can make it to San Diego, you do not have to be in attendance to include your important work in this display. 

Please let me know if you hope to participate and I’ll send you more details directly. I hope to see you there!

A few weeks back I announced the development of new ESRI industry track dedicated to the use of GIS in Indian Country and by Indigenous Communities around the globe.  I'm very pleased to announce that that is now official and it's time to begin soliciting abstracts for the 2009 ESRI International User Conference!  As a new track it's very important we get a strong start with lots of abstracts submitted for potential speakers for next year's conference.  Even if you are not positive you will be able to attend, please submit an abstract if there is a chance you will attend and would be willing to share your GIS experiences with other Tribal / Indigenous attendees at the conference.   The ESRI International User Conference is the largest GIS gathering in the world with over 14,00 attendees.  If you have not attended before it is an amazing event with something for everyone regardless of your level of expertise with GIS.  

Please click http://tinyurl.com/4flnwm and then "Submit an Abstract".  The deadline to submit a track is currently October 17th so if you could take a few minutes and submit an abstract it would be a great help.

Please be sure you place your paper under our new track which can be found under the science and modeling theme: TRI   Tribal/Indigenous GIS Programs
