Event Description

The Vancouver Food Policy Council & Village Vancouver Transition Town Initiative, in partnership with the Museum of Vancouver, are hosting a series of brown bag luncheon discussions and brainstorming sessions at the Museum of Vancouver [MOV].

These meetings bring together several key Civil Society groups who are working towards similar goals: the creation of a just, sustainable and resilient Greater Vancouver bioregion for now and in the future. Our focus is on the effects of a changing climate, peaking resources (fossil fuels, phosphorous and arable land), and economic instability on the security of our food. Our vision is to put mechanisms in place to ensure that security for the time period from now to 2040 and beyond.

We've received exciting ideas and input from past public dialogue sessions - including previous events at the MOV and Langara College and the SFU Semester in Dialogue - and previous Brown Bags, and want to hear from additional groups at this point. We invite you to brainstorm how we can build on these valuable contributions toward concrete and feasible next steps in 2013 and beyond, including our next public event at MOV in the Fall.

Previous dates:

Thursday, March 14th 1-3 pm

Thursday April 25th 1-3pm

Thursday, May 9th 1-3 pm

Thursday May 30th 1-3 pm


Please let us know if you or your organization would be interested in attending a future BB.

[By brown bag, we ask that you please bring your own meal or snack.]

We're taking a summer break. Monthly Brown Bags will resume in September, dates TBA.
