The POLIS Project is playing a lead role in organizing Watersheds 2014: Towards Watershed Governance in British Columbia & Beyond, a forum running January 27-29, 2014 in Duncan, BC. Although the event, which focuses on skills development and capacity building for watershed groups, First Nations, and community watershed champions, is fully booked, POLIS recently announced a number of regional satellite events running alongside the main forum.
