On February 15, 2023 the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) launched #52Weeks52Actions to mark the 15 year anniversary of the formation of the CVRD. #52Weeks52Actions is a year long project focused on highlighting the work the CVRD is undertaking or has taken towards climate action and community wellbeing, two of the CVRD board strategic priorities:
- Climate Crisis and Environmental Stewardship and Protection: The CVRD is committed to reducing our impact on the environment and accelerating our actions to adapt and respond to climate change impacts.
- Community Partnerships: The social fabric of our communities and the health and wellbeing of citizens depend on solid and sustainable community partnerships. Collaboration and support are ever present in guiding our service delivery.
The initiative will run until February 15, 2024. The goal is to post weekly, sharing the actions the CVRD is taking to make the Comox Valley a sustainable and welcoming place to live.
“February 15 marks 15 years since the Comox Strathcona Regional District was restructured into two separate regional districts: the Comox Valley Regional District and the Strathcona Regional District. We’ve decided to celebrate a bit differently this year. We’re challenging ourselves to share with you, our communities, one action per week that we have taken or are taking towards climate action and community wellbeing. Why are we doing this now? Because we have heard through the elected officials and from residents that we need to step up the actions we are taking to make the Comox Valley a sustainable and welcoming place to live now and into the future. Join us for this year-long project, as we share 52 Actions in 52 Weeks,” states Russell Dyson, Chief Administrative Officer for the Comox Valley Regional District.
