Profile Information

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...
All of what Transition is about interests me. However, if I was to prioritize, I feel most strongly about urban agriculture, permaculture, community-building, and energy efficiency.
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 an industrial designer and an educator, so I may have some applicable skills…
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?
Keeping food local and making housing more affordable.
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.

Hi Josh,


Hope all is well and that you are happily graduated with a Master's degree!

When we met a few months ago, I believe you had expressed an interest in the possibility of taking part in the design of a community currency. Our main designer says he could really use a hand, so I'm wondering if this is still something you might be interested in? If so, please get in touch with me: jordanbober [at] Cheers!

Hi Josh, might I see you at the community currency presentation with Michael Linton tomorrow (Sunday) at the SUB at UBC? Also, next Saturday Michael will be back with his colleagues Pieter and Caila for a project planning workshop with us, and I'd love to have you there if you can make it! More info and RSVP at
