Village Vancouver inspires individuals and organizations to take actions that build resilient and sustainable communities. We are one of several hundred official Transition Town Initiatives spreading across the globe, the first in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia and pleased to join our fellow sustainability pioneers in Victoria, Nelson, Salt Spring Island, and Powell River.
We are first and foremost a hub of knowledge and resources, helping both to spawn walkable neighbourhood Villages within our 115 square kilometre and 612,000 person city, and to assist other cities in our region with Transition. Promoting social, environmental and economic change in the face of profound ecological stresses and economic crisis, we encourage individuals and groups to unite and collaborate in support of common goals and actions.
Most importantly we strive to have fun in the process, proving that doing the right thing can be a holistically profitable and endlessly enjoyable experience.
If you would like to read more about our Working Groups and neighbourhood Villages, respond to anything on this site, or add content of your own, become a member of Village Vancouver by joining this site. You will be asked for your name, gender, birth date (feel free to improvise), local neighbourhood (and/or other home city), and a few questions about your interests in sustainability. We will hold all personal information in strictest privacy, releasing it to no one for any purpose and sending only at most weekly full-group emails about key Transition and Village Vancouver happenings.
AND PLEASE REMEMBER: Don’t let the world end because it was too risky to save.
