Webinar: Introducing the Municipal Natural Asset Initiative


Join us next Friday October 28th, 12PM – 1PM EST to learn more about innovative Canadian municipalities that are incorporating natural capital into core financial, asset management and infrastructure decision-making.

We will introduce the Municipal Natural Asset Initiative (MNAI), a platform for leading municipalities to experiment and innovate with natural capital through a series of pilot projects aimed at refining and replicating the Town of Gibsons’ Eco Asset Strategy.

The goal of the MNAI is to support municipalities in recognizing, measuring and managing the contribution natural systems make to people and municipal service delivery, using municipal asset management business processes. This webinar will introduce participants to the Town of Gibsons’ Eco Asset Strategy, discuss how MNAI is scaling this strategy through a series of pilot projects, and describe how you can participate in shaping the future of natural capital valuation through the Natural Capital Lab.

Webinar Speakers:

John Purkis, Director, Natural Capital Lab

Roy Brooke, Director, Municipal Natural Asset Initiative

Emanuel Machado, Chief Administrative Officer, Town of Gibsons, B.C.

Michelle Molnar, Environmental Economist, David Suzuki Foundation.
