The Clayoquot Symposium 2003 is organized by the Clayoquot Alliance for Research, Education and Training, a partnership between the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust and the University of Victoria.

Functioning under the UNESCO mandate, the vision of the Biosphere Reserve is to help communities live sustainably in healthy ecosystems. The top priority of the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust is to facilitate dialogue in local communities regarding the nature and the development of the communities. Through such dialogue, we aim to increase local capacity for conservation and sustainable resource management. The focus of the Clayoquot Symposium 2003 on questions of community health will help to move dialogue forward and identify new ways for Clayoquot Biosphere Trust to fulfill its ongoing mandate.

For further information, please call our conference coordinator, Maggie Zhang, at 250-726-7291, e-mail rongz@uvic.ca.

We look forward to seeing you there!
