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...
Growing food, potlucks, event organizing, knitting, public art & culture.
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'm a student at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. I could contribute design skills for marketing, posters, website, branding purposes etc. I enjoy the arts, and have helped in classroom settings regarding painting, drawing, sculpture, and collage. I have a house that could support meals and a garden that is in need of use, and large enough to share.
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'd love to see more public art around my community/Vancouver. Painting and drawing is a neat way to express your ideas and something that anyone can benefit from. Using nature as the main inspiration, you can gather an immense understanding of your surroundings. I'd love to see people explore, and create through their relationship with their natural surroundings.
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.
