Talk Green Vancouver - Draft Zero Waste Action Plan
Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre
181 Roundhouse Mews (Corner of Davie & Pacific)
Wednesday, March 2, 2011 
6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Zero Waste Vancouver, Village Vancouver, and the City of Vancouver are hosting a 2-hour dinner meeting through its Greenest City initiative, to look at the draft Zero Waste Plan through a “neighbourhood” lens. 
 
Waste happens in part because people don’t have options when they need them: composting in your apartment building, for instance. It also happens because of social isolation: we can’t find people down the street who could use something we have no further use for.

 

The City has asked the community to come up with specific  Neighbourhood Zero Waste "Assets" that could encourage exchanges rather than discards, for instance, foster repair and stewardship rather than more consumption... reduce our waste and build more resilient, connected communities at the same time.

 

In the course of building neighbourhood capacity in one area, we build it in all areas and become a resilient Green City with deep roots. Ultimately, this will be given expression in new land-use and zoning policies that support a livable city.
 
Be a part of this conversation on March 2nd. The City needs our insights and organizational capacity.
