Event Description

How is ecological collapse affecting your life?

How best to face this??

How might we respond realistically???

A free, one-time, facilitated discussion co-sponsored by Village Vancouver to:

-explore and share thoughts, feelings and actions regarding the potential impacts of ecological collapse;

-help find meaning, clarity and peace in this uncertain world;

-and together build personal and community resilience.

Facilitator:  Fred Bass is a community medicine physician whose past work focused on tobacco addiction & clinical preventive care and who served on Vancouver city council from 1999 to 2005.

Pre-registration is necessary to limit the number to 12 participants to provide everyone a full chance to speak. 



call/text         (604) 657-1481

Again, pre-registration is required, so please invite friends to register but not to show up at the last minute.  Thanks.

a word of caution:  Persons who are vulnerable to depression or other mental health issues, or who have had a recent major personal loss, should delay participation until they get encouragement to participate from a counsellor, health professional or supportive friend.

Further info:  Seven Eco-resilience workshops have been held in 2019, from January to October.  Despite the seriousness of this subject, each of the seven groups seemed positive and energized at the close of the workshop.


Follow-up will take the form of "Eco-resilience Gatherings" to begin in 2020 to provide those interested an opportunity to socialize, share announcements and to join a focused discussion led by persons experienced in building community-level, Transition-Town, Village-Vancouver style resilience. 

We acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the Xwméthkwyiem (Musqueam), Skwxwúmesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Hey one & all,

We still have plenty of space for this last of the 2019 Eco-Resilience Workshops, this Thursday 6:00-9:30.

So join those who speak their truth about the ecological state of our world and how they/we are responding to it. 

The workshops have been interesting, varied and all seven energizing.

Hope to see you there,

Fred Bass
