All welcome to this week-long learning and networking event. Workshops are organized around 3 program streams: social, environment and economic. Interactive workshops provide participants with practical knowledge and skills.
Village Vancouver is a key partner in Langara College's Sustainable Communities Summer School with our 2013 Transition School offering more than a dozen workshops on a wide range of topics.
Participants can attend one or more practical, hands on workshops and pick up tangible new skills in the areas such as Composting, Introductory Permaculture Design, Balcony and Container Gardening, Urban Beekeeping, and Gardening for Year Round Harvest, while at our community resiliency workshops participants can learn about Building Resilient Neighbourhood Food Networks, How to Create a Village in a City, and Community Currencies.
Several "big picture" offerings, including Introduction to the Transition Town Movement, Ecological Economics, Setting the Context for Social Change, A History of the Future of Food, and a screening of In Transition 2.0, help participants to engage in critical thinking about our current state of affairs and how we might create a more just, equitable and sustainable world!
Everything kicks off with Building the Bridge to a Future Where People and Nature Flourish: 4th Annual Sustainability and Equality Event on Saturday July 6.
