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...
Upcycling/reuse of goods, urban farming, localizing economies, increasing community involvement.
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!)
Would love to get involved in local currency initiatives and outfits like the tool library. Also interested in materials exchange between organizations where resources normally destined for landfill or recycling is used as an input elsewhere. I have experience in building material/tool industry, have dialogue facilitation and research skills, love to cook and create things (wood working, visual art), completed a compost educator training course.
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 would like to see more interaction and sharing of goods, ideas and knowledge between neighbours. For example, small scale tool exchange on your block, sharing lawnmowers and other large equipment or food preservation parties. Perhaps a resource to bring interested people to one place and that can give support for these initiatives. Also, increasing opportunities for self employment, such as the Ayoudo network.
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.
