Since we opened in 2018 we have convened a variety of meetings, across our three British Columbia locations, including scientific forums with government, university and technical experts; First Nations training; and in-house discussions.
We encourage open dialogue and exchange of ideas across the disciplines. The bucolic nature and isolation of our Quadra Island and Calvert Island locations ensure uninterrupted peace and focus. Our Victoria, BC location allows for more open participation.
We encourage multiple meetings on a major topic. For example, we would typically host three, three-day meetings staged six to eight months apart. This structure, which extends work on the topic to a year or so, leads naturally to tangible deliverables, where a single meeting may not. We call such clusters of meeting "triptychs".
