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, potlucks, outreach, organizing events, community-building, having fun while saving the world, or...
urban agriculture, energy-efficient, green and natural buildings, permaculture, transit, relocalization.
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?
Reducing consumption, maybe increase in service-based businesses. More lifecycle analysis.

We are organizing a number of events this summer, such as Car Free Day on Main Street on June 19. We'll be erecting an entire sustainable village, with chickens, bees, a composter, rain barrel, solar panels, etc. We'll need volunteers to help make it a great place to visit for everyone.
Meanwhile, we are busy growing lots of food in the city and are creating a roving food market (a small farmer's market) to distribute this zero-mile food to every neighbourhood in Vancouver, by bicycle.
There is lots to do, and lots of fun people to do it with.
Whatever you'd like to do, we'll help to make it happen.
Local, organic, rural, and/or urban, food production is a mainstay of life, and doing it well leads to wellness. From farm to kitchen, discussions relating to food--and the community arising around it--belong here.
If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around.
A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community. This category is for all things relating to shelter, housing, affordable housing, homes, renewable heating systems, green buildings, heritage, and our built environment in general.
