THIS IS LEADERSHIP VANCOUVER ISLAND
Creatively United for the Planet is a non-profit society that supports, showcases and celebrates community solutions and strategies to ensure where we live, work, eat, play and study remains beautiful, vibrant, healthy and resilient.
We know a lot of people are doing amazing things that more people should know about.
In addition to our many events and shareable educational resources, we have created this free, non-profit community information network, resource guide and event hub to share what our community cares about.
This Is Leadership showcases and celebrates local leaders and change-makers with the understanding that real leadership is in the inspired actions people take to improve the quality of life in their community.
