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...
All of the above Especially growing food permaculture, seed diversity, relocalizing economy, energy efficiency, air quality which is not on the list.
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!)
Gardenning, Energy and Air Quality, Cycling, Preserving Neighbourhood Businesses, Green spaces, I can be radical and persistent. Work up north so not home a lot.
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?
OK if we super densify the city where will the sun and the earth meet up. No sun no heat no heat no growth, no sun no photosynthesis. Lets increase the green space foot print as we grow. up and up. My small poorly lit back yard produces blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, garlic, tomatoes, corn, squash, beans, peas, carrots, peppers, parsnips, asparagus, cauliflower, cherries, onions, lettuces, kale, swiss chard, and POTATOES. A lane way house to the south of me would destroy my garden. I would rather my neighbour had another floor to his house.

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.
