The Construction Record Podcast™ – Episode 335: Holistic Forest Management with Justin Perry

Journal Of Commerce Image Journal Of Commerce

On this episode of The Construction Record Podcast, digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with British Columbia Institute of Technology instructor Justin Perry about a new holistic approach to wildfire management.

Perry recently spoke at TedX Abbotsford with a talk titled “Holistic Wildfire Management: Seeing Fire Through Multiple Lenses” (embedded below) which elaborated on ways in which we can change our perspective from a traditional approach of fighting every fire individually to shaping, cultivating and adapting the landscape to a new set of conditions as climate change creates stronger and more deadly wildfires across Canada every summer and fall.

He also explained how traditional Indigenous wildfire management methods can and have been adopted to combat fires and speaks to several resources both for studying previous catastrophic fire events such as the Lytton and Fort McMurray wildfires, and resource hubs for both individuals and businesses to increase fire resilience.

You can listen to our recent two-part series looking at geopolitical upheaval, labour shortages and the economic outlook for construction with ConstructConnect chief economist Alex Carrick and senior economist Michael Guckes here and here and all our episodes are available at the Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce websites, on Libsyn and at  Apple PodcastsSpotify and Amazon Music’s podcast section.
