A presentation on The Natural Step (TNS) Framework, a methodology for
planning that provides an elegant, rigorous, science-based understanding of
sustainability together with a tested planning approach to translate that
understanding into practice. Participants will learn about the principles of
the TNS Framework and how it is being applied in communities and businesses
in Canada and around the world. Organizations using the TNS Framework
include: the Regional Municipality of Whistler, the Town of Canmore,
Interface Inc., and more than 60 municipalities in Sweden. Come and learn
about this important tool for sustainability - we all can play a role for a
sustainable future. A not-to-miss presentation!
