On April 16, 2013, Powell River Voices, along with its partners¬†Transition Town Powell River, and the Powell River Money Society presented Michael Lewis, author of The Resilience Imperative, who spoke about “Reweaving our local economy in a volatile century.”

On the following morning, Michael presented a workshop on “Financing Local Economic Transition.”

The turnout for the public presentation was very good and the audience was engaged with the material that Michael presented. And the more intensive workshop on the following day was a good opportunity for some engaged local people (including some City Councillors and City staff from Powell River) to think about how our region might move in some of these promising economic direction.
