In the early days of the BCDevExchange, we heard a key message from the BC Innovation Council’s (BCIC) experienced technology network: “Don’t build this idea behind a desk in Victoria. Get out and talk to the provincial tech industry.”

At Environmental Reporting BC, we embrace openness. We share our methods, data and code underlying the Province’s State of the Environment report. We do this so others can replicate and evaluate our work, and to foster collaboration with other scientists inside and outside the public service, including providing opportunities to contribute if they desire.
