Take a refreshing and educational winter trip on Vancouver Island to find out how to protect our waterways while producing clean energy jobs. Hop a ferry to Vancouver Island, or if you live there already drive a little ways, and be transported to a place of learning unlike any other.
The Inside Passage Decarbonization Project will be Quadra Island’s unique U of Q (University of Quadra) first topic of its weekly winter class, on January 31, 2018.
Not your typical lecture, U of Q attendees include boaters that live on the island or come for the culture. ‘Students,' ages 20 to 70+ often arrive late, leave early, eat and drink in class, and always get a passing grade! U of Q classes are taught by invited faculty with a passion and deep knowledge of environmental, important and inspiring issues of the day.
Canadian Coastal Champion and Cascadia Fellow, Captain Peter Wilcox, USCG Licensed Master Mariner, shares a developing set of strategies to dramatically reduce carbon in the Inside Passage marine waterway of Washington, British Columbia and SE Alaska – beginning now.
The Inside Passage Decarbonization Project is a concerted effort by fishermen, native bands and tribes, ports and boaters to enable the production and use of renewable electricity and liquid fuels from sun, tide, wind and available waste streams while boosting local employment.
