Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Kitsilano
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...
Potlucks, outreach (with a focus on youth), education and community building. Learning skills I don't already have.
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 am good at organizing events. I am interested in getting involved in projects in the DTES because I am looking to learn more about the issues that affect that population.
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?
I don't know quite how to put this, but I would like to see the networking lines improved. I have had the opportunity to meet so many people doing so many interesting things and yet often they don't know about each other. Although I don't have any formal knowledge in this, I think exploring ways in which people can connect is needed. Something that allows people and groups to engage together at various levels (core-periphery) in a non-coercive way.
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

Welcome to Village Vancouver Ivey! I'll have to introduce you to Ross, the Village Vancouver founder and convenor who lives in Kits (on Labernum Street) and organises various activities there. Most months he hosts a drop-in spaghetti night at his home - next one is on the 28th of December.
