In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
North Vancouver
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...
Electric Vehicles, Energy, transportation. Agriculture, Recycling
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 grew some stuff once. It all died, but I can dig, so I can help you plant your stuff. I can fix almost anything. I want to feel like I am making a difference. I am very knowledgable about science and I know green washing when I see it.
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?
Take all the Hydrogen powered busses that were purchased for the Olympics and turn them into planters.
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.
Yes
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 want to get more involved in helping improve our world for my two incredible kids. I recently sold my house in Gibsons and I am now a renter in North Vancouver so I really can't do much where I am now.

Peter,

Welcome to the Village.  We have a Board member who just moved to North Vancouver (City) and is setting up her Coop as a meeting place for the Transition movement in North Van.  You can contact Kathryn through her page here.  

You make an appropriate comment about the "hydrogen economy," and meanwhile keep trying to grow things, where you can find space.  I'd edit your last comment above though; we have a site policy against name-calling.  

Welcome aboard.
