Twinning our Green Economies: Vancouver and Yokohama at 45
With Mayor Gregor Robertson, Honoured Guest and Speaker

GRAND DOOR PRIZE:  JAL return ticket to JAPAN!

Our Annual
Fall Dinner is always a wonderful opportunity to celebrate
our friendships. This year we celebrate our 45-year friendship with
Yokohama and the growing ties we have with our sister city. We are
very pleased that Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson has agreed to be
our honoured guest and featured speaker and that accompanying him will
be Deputy Mayor George Chow. We are further delighted to be returning
to the Four Seasons Hotel, a member of our society, now that its
renovations have been completed.

The Mayor will bring us up to speed on the progress of strategic green

collaborations currently underway in our two cities, both of which
aspire to zero emission status, and the future economic and ecological
benefits of our continuing collaboration on these and future "Clean
Tech" initiatives. Councillor Chow will report on his meetings as
Vancouver representative at earlier Sister-City meetings in Yokohama
in October. There will be an opportunity for questions following their

These are exciting times for Clean Tech. Japan's New Growth Strategy

(June 2010) calls for special emphasis on Green Innovation and seeks
international strategic collaboration on standards, research, project
development and commercialization. The Canada/Japan Joint Committee on
Science and Technology is meeting in Ottawa on November 9.

Please join us for a fascinating look at how you might become a part

of what is to come in the future of our sister-city relationship!
