Can Australian Cities learn anything from Vancouver?

Thursday 30 June 2011

To be named the world's most livable city consistently is something that must please Vancouverians no end. Having just arrived there are two things that stand out - 1. The place is so clean; and 2.

And if tourism is something that appeals to cities in Australia, perhaps there's more things we can learn from Vancouver

I'm here for a few days and will write up a brief report after my time here, which I'll post to the website.  I'm also interviewing a couple in Banff who run ski reorts and plan to chat with them about Banff's approach to tourism, the future of ski fields and what observations they note from any climate change issues - stay tuned
