In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
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...
Just about everything We've organized a neighbourhood block plant exchange for the last two years but I'd like to be involved in more local activities.
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!)
My expertise in co-op development and social enterprise; not sure how that could be useful but I'm happy to see.
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?
Here's one thing of many: commitment from the City of Vancouver to local purchasing of food and other products and sister policies to encourage more local production of food and other products. On a higher level, the development of genuine progress indicators to screen investments, policies, etc. See www.gpipacific.org for more.
