Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
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'm interested in many aspects of this. Perhaps 'relocalizing the economy' would sum up part of it. I write about some of these issues on my website Sustainable Food, Attainable Health, at
The work of your group sounds really valuable. I haven't had time yet to get involved, but I think it's time! Thank you for all of your initiative.
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!)
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?
This issue I'm most interested in is 'the meat problem.' The evidence now is that we all need to cut back significantly on our consumption of animal products, and choose meat, dairy and fish that is sustainably produced. (Not necessarily just 'local; because the intensive chicken farms in the Fraser Valley aren't ecological or healthy.) I'd like to see more emphasis on this.
I agree to read and abide by the Site Guidelines under the About tab on the navigation bar, remaining respectful in all communications on this web site.
