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...
Urban agriculture/permaculture, urban homesteading, preserving seed diversity, potlucks, having fun while saving the world, building a simpler life for my family, re-connecting with the earth and learning to be self reliant for myself and for my family, teaching my son to love and respect our earth, really just trying to improve life and learn as much as I can.
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!)
Im not entirely sure what I have to offer yet but Id love to volunteer for anything Im able to and hopefully learn my passions and talents so as to pass them along in the future and really give back.
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?
I cant find a whole lot happening in my community and would definitely like to see some close-to-home happenings. I have no ideas yet though as I am just starting to get on my own feet regarding all of this, first.
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.
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'd like to meet like-minded people and gain as much knowledge as possible.
