‘Collabetition’ advances community innovationPosted: June 26, 2012

Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) is partnering with BC Ideas to provide five $10,000 cash awards to reward innovative solutions addressing issues which will improve the lives of residents in the Columbia Basin region.

BC Ideas: Solutions for Stronger Communities is an online competition seeking to identify solutions to deal with challenges facing BC communities now and in the future. This “collabetition” is designed to promote collaboration and information sharing among participants and experts to improve well-being and strengthen society. All stages of solutions are welcome and encouraged, from ideas to established programs.

“BC Ideas is a unique platform that recognizes and helps advance innovative ideas and projects that may benefit Basin communities,” said Neil Muth, CBT president and CEO. “Participants can share their ideas to gain profile and solicit feedback. In turn, CBT’s support for the competition will enable successful Basin innovators to turn their ideas into action.”

Although a province-wide initiative, CBT has committed to providing five $10,000 awards to be given specifically to entries from individuals and organizations that identify innovative and sustainable solutions that have strong potential to result in the greater social, economic and environmental well-being and self-sufficiency of people and communities in the Columbia Basin.

Entries will be evaluated for innovation, impact and sustainability. BC Ideas has over $200,000 in awards available province-wide. Visit www.bcideas.ca to submit ideas, nominate others or find out more information. The competition closes September 12, 2012.

CBT supports efforts to deliver social, economic and environmental benefits to the residents of the Columbia Basin. To learn more about CBT programs and initiatives, visit www.cbt.org or call 1-800-505-8998.
