UBCM Delegates Describe Their Communities in One Word

With over 2000 people attending the Union of British Columbia Municipalities Conference there are plenty of community stories to share. BC Healthy Communities Society on behalf of the PlanH Program hosted a tradeshow booth at the convention where we photographed delegates sharing inspiring words that described their communities. Find your local leader (or yourself) in the ‘Describe Your Community’ poster.

Check out a snapshot of the day on Storify.

Thank you to everyone that contributed their thoughts and ideas on healthy community building through collaboration at our booth. We also enjoyed meeting many of the delegates at the dynamic ‘speed dating’ session. Stay tuned for the videos of Local Leaders Cam which will be posted on planh.ca
