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...
I'm keen on the arts, outreach, events, sport and community building (especially community building through sports and the arts). I'd also love to learn to garden - never really done much in that way and would like to start.
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'd love to host pot lucks, participate and help organize workshops on health and wellbeing, caregiving, meditation, technology in the Kits area. I'm a product manager and researcher and work in health care \ technology so I'd love to share knowledge in that area especially for older adults and those new to Canada. I run and bike and swim so can totally do lots of outdoor activities with people.
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 Vancouver as a caring hub. A place where we have greater capacity to care for each other and share resources. That might be a project - not sure.
