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...

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 science teacher at École Secondaire Jules-Verne (Oakridge). I feel one of my greatest responsibilities is to expose my students to community-building experiences and ideas.
I would also love to lead my school into becoming more involved in its community. We have an indoor greenhouse/ hydroponics facility which could be used to grow food for the community.
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 would like my students to get involved in their communities, not just because they need volonteering hours for their diploma, but because they realise how important it is and what satisfaction can be obtained from it.
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.
