The Greater Victoria Region achieves social and ecological sustainability, with a high quality of life and a long life in good health for all its citizens, while reducing its ecological footprint to be equivalent to one planet’s worth of bio-capacity.

The Mission of The Conversations is to establish and maintain community-wide conversations on One Planet living and a One Planet Region.

There are three things we need to do in order to achieve this:

• Facilitate widespread community discussion of the concept of a One Planet Region with a high quality of life, engaging as many community sectors and groups as possible in as many ways as possible.
• Facilitate the development of a tangible vision of what a One Planet Region would look and feel like, what it would mean for me in my daily life.
• Facilitate the formal adoption of a One Planet Region Plan for the Greater Victoria Region and mechanisms for tracking and reporting on our progress.
