iShift is a made in Whistler program that supports 30 Whistler businesses to develop, implement and monitor the results of a strategic action plan for sustainability and ongoing business success.

 

iShift is a Whistler2020 take action challenge that helps to accelerate Whistler’s progress toward its shared vision of success and sustainability. It is comprised of two parts: iShift Business and iShift Citizen, each targeted toward motivating cultural and behavioural shifts within Whistler. The programs are being facilitated by the Whistler Centre for Sustainability (WCS) and the Resort Municipality of Whistler, with the financial support of the Government of Canada provided through the Department of the Environment.

 

Mark Allison of iSHift will be a panelist for our BSC conference's Business Session on Day 2 and will facilitate "Sustainability 201" on Day 3.

True! My own experience..a lot of people charging and using their laptops or smartphones while waiting for the flight at the airport. And most airports have free wifi..that give passengers convinience. And I used to get a map when I visit a city, but now I use my phone to get directions.

“More and more farmers are turning to agri-tourism to get in money. It’s a way to help educate the public. Here at Steed’s Dairy Farm, that’s exactly what they’ve set up. They have a corn maze, you can go hay rides, visit a petting zoo. It’s a way to help farmers in a tough economy.”
