MOTION


The following motion was put forward by Commissioner Barnes:

Whereas the Greenest City Action Team has identified one of the ten broad long term goals for 2020 as zero waste;

Whereas invasive species and other environmental management processes carried out by the Park Board result in green waste;

Whereas the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation confirms its mandate in the arts and recognizes the arts as an essential element in a vital, creative and balanced city and seeks to actively facilitate participation in and access to the arts for all;

Whereas new ways of approaching invasive English Ivy green waste were created by artists collaborating with ecologists during the Stanley Park Environmental Art Project;

Therefore be it resolved that staff explore options for management and reduction of green waste, including the up-cycling of green waste through creative partnerships with artists and ecologists.
