Salt Spring Island Charette on Climate Change


The future of Ganges and Fulford villages was the theme for Salt Spring Island’s first design ‘charrette’, an intensive workshop that brought together three teams of design professionals, including a core group of local architects, designers, planners, builders, and artists, and a support group of specialists and knowledgeable residents.  Their design challenge was to enhance and illustrate the current plans and policies for the island's villages in a time of climate change.

The resulting document and plans helped the community think out-side the box when considering how the villages should have been constructed, or might be in the future, as the impacts of climate change intensify.
