Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities
In the past couple years, VV has done a few things around Transportation - working on a Ciclovia proposal with the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition, activities around Car Free Day (including bike repair and advice at our demonstration neighbourhood village at the Main Street Festival last year), some work with BARSA early on, and using our cargo bike (donated by the bike co-op) to haul tents and tables to harvest festivals.
These have all been pretty ad hoc, but we've never really got the Transportation Group started, partially because, unlike many other VV groups (Learning Ops, Local Economy, Food, Heart and Soul, etc.) we've never had a convenor or coordinator.
Currently, there's some great momentum in Village; over 50 people have joined in January, and many groups and neighbourhood villages are engaging in some pretty exciting projects and activities.
There's now more than 20 of us in Transportation, and I thought I'd host a casual gathering where we can explore our various interests around Transportation and Transition, with an eye towards getting some activities and projects going.
Nothing too structured, just a chance to share some tasty food together, make some good connections, and see where our conversation leads us.
I hope you'll join us.
