'A Future with Zero CO2 Emissions', Stockholm, May 2006.

In May 2006, David Waldron, Programme Director of the MSLS programme at BTH, was in Stockholm to present Backcasting from sustainability principles: the case of Whistler, Canada at a European conference for local governments on climate protection and the promotion of renewable energy.

His presentation outlines the story of the renowned resort community of Whistler, where previously David had prepared the Environmental Master Plan and co-ordinated the community sustainability initiative involving public, private and non-governmental sectors, based on The Natural Step Framework. This national, award-winning partnership has served as a Canadian “best practices” model that continues to inspire change across the country.

Backcasting from sustainability principles is an essential element of the MSLS programme.
