Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities
Village Vancouver (VV) Transition Society is about taking action on sustainability, community resilience, social justice, and health. VV is Vancouver's Transition Town Initiative, responding appropriately and smartly to Climate Change, Peak Oil, and economic insecurity. We are one of over 374 permaculture-inspired official Transition Towns worldwide, one of 20 in Canada, and the 4th in BC. Learn more about the Transition Movement in this 45-minute video.
We connect people together in their neighbourhoods ("villages") and around common interests through potlucks, growing food,workshops, events, projects, working groups, networks, and permaculture.
Join us in whatever activity on this site excites you, or develop your own and tell us about it. Our city and bioregion have to play their parts in the global Transition Movement, and we hope to help Vancouver and the whole metropolitan area evolve from the ground up to a less energy-consumptive, less polluted, more equitable, celebratory and healthier community, through the lives, livelihoods, activities, homes, and workplaces of each of our 600,000 person city and 2.3 million metropolitan population.
