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!)

Hi Gordon, I am sorry to have missed your call. Problems with my phone, but should be resolved in 1-2 days. Hope you try contacting me again. I'd be interested in knowing what you have been doing and explore the possibility of collaborating together. I believe strongly in the value of collaborative work where our individual efforts can multiply in magnitude and efficacy especially if we have synergies that we could combine. I am interested in all the projects you are working on. Cheers,
Hi Gordon. Do you live in Surrey? I am trying to organize a VillageSurrey where we can be more active pursuing our interests in establishing a sustainable society, economy, and environment and hopefully try to share our lives and resources to make it happen. Please contact me (preferably by phone) to let me know about your availability for an organizing meeting to take place within the next 7-10 days. Cheers, Behrouz
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.
