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...
Community building, the arts, energy efficiency, and of course having fun while saving the world
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!)

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?
Networks of support - where people are trying to make the transition from the old paradigm/patterns into a new more sustainable way of being. A lot of people just don;t know how to change their ways, and some of our beloved communities are perceived to a particular steroetypical "hippy culture" which can be put people off. Would like to see a medium type culture merge that allows for people to see we are all just people trying to the do the best we can for our environment. You don't need to be vegan-vegetarian hemp wearing person to live sustainably...

I saw a wonderful lady (sorry can't remember her name!) from VV, speak at the Evolver CoLab early this month. I briefly spoke with her afterwards and mentioned I really felt called to work with this group. I have been seeking to volunteer for a while - just looking for the right fit. VV felt like it was in resonance with where I am at right now.

Hi Kelly thanks for the great words about my presentation at Evolver. We can really use some help in getting our message across to the broader community. Would you be interested in helping out with the Outreach committee? We've had some turnover recently in our board of directors and since many of our board members were on this committee, will need to get it started again.
Look forward to working with you.
