In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
If you don't live in Vancouver or are in another neighbourhood or community we did not list, please tell us where home is.
I live In both Calgary and Vancouver
Please tell us which areas of Transition interest you. For example: growing more food/urban agriculture, relocalizing our economy/local currency, Permaculture, transit, energy efficient buildings, the arts, urban homesteading, preserving seed diversity, placemaking, potlucks, outreach, organizing events, community-building, having fun while saving the world, or...
I am interested in all of these things.
Permaculture, alternative economics, sustainable everyday, all things local food, fermenting, urban farming, sharing, resiliency, behavior change, placemaking, creating wisdom, lifestyle experiments, environmental health, integrative scales of design, local recovery and repurposing, adaptive reuse, local production, ... discovering new things.
There's a saying that "Transition is not a spectator sport". It's true! Village Vancouver runs on people power, and engaging in activities and projects together helps us accomplish more. Which groups, networks, neighbourhood villages, or projects do you think you might be interested in getting involved with? And what knowledge, skills, resources or other assets can you bring to the mix? (Don't be bashful!)
I am a professor of sustainability and critical inquiry in design at Emily Carr University, member of Desis Lab for social innovation in sustainability and STRETCH Sustainability Research collective. I am interested in the why of consumption, how we create meaning in material culture and the implications for our identity, how we produce and share goods. I am interested in hyper local interventions that aggregate in to systemic change.
What would you like to see improved in Vancouver or in your community regarding sustainability or resiliency? Do you have an idea for a new Transition project or activity?
I am new to village Vancouver, i would like to learn and listen before assuming I know what can or should be done.

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( email@example.com ) for the full details. Have a nice day Thanks God bless.
