"UBC Sustainable Development Professor John Robinson will launch a new phase of an ambitious $6-million research project he hopes will contribute to a sustainable environment for the people, plants and animals living insouthwest B.C. 40 years from now.Robinson believes his interactive computer game Georgia Basin Quest will give British Columbians a way of stating what kind of future they want while providing a valuable data bank for politicians charged with implementing the public trust. Robinson also thinks the future will contain constraints and uncertainty. He said GB-Quest will allow people who have become apathetic about politics a chance to make their voices heard as the region continues its dramatic growth."
