Cascadia Innovation Corridor Virtual Forum: Local Farms, COVID-19 and the Future of Sustainability

Event Description

The 2020 Cascadia Innovation Corridor Virtual Forums build upon the four years of gatherings and work to strengthen collaboration across the Cascadia mega-region. Like the conferences before, the virtual forums bring together business, academic, and government leaders from both sides of the border to explore new strategies for the region to come together, maximize our shared competitive advantages, and elevate our global economic position. It is an opportunity to engage with regional, national and international experts on how we can work together to strengthen Cascadia’s position as an international hub for innovation, spur job creation, and restore our economic health in the context of today’s challenges, particularly COVID-19.

The Cascadia Innovation Corridor Community on Friday, November 20th is hosting their third virtual forum of the series: Local Farms, COVID-19 and the Future of Sustainability, hosted by Dr. Rickey Yada, Dean of UBC Faculty of Land and Food Systems and Co-chair of Cascadia Innovation Corridor’s sub-committee on sustainable agriculture.

Registration details coming soon.
