Tides Canada project Rainforest Solutions Project (RSP) is the recipient of the prestigious 2016 Fuller Challenge from the Buckminster Fuller Institute. The Challenge awards $100,000 for work that pushes the boundaries of socially responsible design and considers ecological, economic, and social impacts.

RSP is a longtime project on Tides Canada’s shared platform and is a unique coalition consisting of Greenpeace, Sierra Club BC, and Stand.earth. For over 15 years, RSP was instrumental in the collaboration between the Government of BC, First Nations, environment organizations, and logging companies to develop a new conservation approach in the Great Bear Rainforest called Ecosystem-Based Management.

The Great Bear Rainforest is now protected under historic agreements, which laid out the most comprehensive conservation and commercial forest management plan in all of North America. The agreements ensure the preservation of 85 per cent of 15 million acres of old-growth forests in the Great Bear Rainforest.

Congratulations to RSP and all parties involved on winning the Fuller Challenge. Read more about the award here.
