Hey dude! – where’s my survey?

The survey is now complete – but don’t worry, this won’t be the last time that there is an opportunity to get involved.

More than 100 people filled out the survey between March 1st and 6th and shared their thoughts on how to make Okanagan College more sustainable.

We have taken all your ideas, compiled them with elements of the STARS program, and organized them for review. This week and next, 12 groups of volunteers throughout the institution will evaluate and rate the ideas. Each group will make suggestions, which will result in projects, approaches and policies that will be included in a recommended short-term action plan at the end of the month. If you made any long-term recommendations, those have also been considered, talked about, and filed for when we create a long-term sustainability plan in the future.

Project leader Arnica Rowan would like to thank everyone who visited the open houses, shared ideas and supported the Three Steps Forward project so far.

As the famous cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
