British Columbia’s competitive advantage rests on social and ecological diversity unparalleled in the world. Our rich rainforests, teeming rivers and bountiful seas, combined with our well-educated workforce and unique blend of Indigenous and global cultures, differentiates us in the world.
The conservation economy is driven by the triple-bottom-line, where economic opportunity improves rather than degrades social and environmental conditions. Some people call it sustainability – we call it the conservation economy. This economic approach provides meaningful work and good livelihoods, supports vibrant communities and the recognition of Aboriginal rights and title, and conserves and restores the environment.
Well, the gist of it is... since I graduated with a degree in Environmental Studies in 2002 (my focus was on the influences of responsible environmental behaviour) I haven't found my "dream job". I worked at a couple of non-profit orgs in Toronto and then decided to move to Vancouver in 2003. Still didn't find anything here in Vancouver that really made me excited. I volunteered at a bunch of enviro orgs but unfortunately.. its a tough field to break into and find a good job that fits - I guess its difficult to find a job that makes you happy in any field.
