EcoReality has a mandate for doing public events. There is an opportunity to do a large event on Salt Spring with a well known presenter. This could give EcoReality some huge public awareness and build a relationship with someone very inspiring.


Do a public event in October 2009 off site at one of the venues available for rent on Salt Spring. It would start at 7:00pm and be finished by 9:30-10:00pm

Goal or deliverable

Produce and promote a large scale public event.
