Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Dunbar, Kitsilano, Tsawwassen
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...
all of the above, plus reducing street run-off which pollutes the ocean
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 haven't had a chance to look at the site yet (I was directed here through an email that didn't link through the website itself), but I am a graduate student in ecology - so I have a lot of experience getting dirty for projects. I also have a network through UBC that I can help advertise projects through, as well as access to a large database of peer-reviewed literature if we need background information on anything.
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?
Bring composting to apartments and basement suites, who may not be permitted to have their own compost bin, through the same kind of pick-up for other waste or a drop-off site. Also, raise awareness that what goes down the storm drains ends up in the ocean.
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.
Yes
Don't feel like answering all the questions now? No worries, just tell us briefly why you're interested in joining at this time, and you can come back and update your profile later.
I've briefly answered the above questions, but I'm here because a friend told me about the group and that it's all about "tak[ing] actions that build sustainable communities & have fun[ing] doing it" - which sounds like a group that I want to join.
