Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
UBC-Endowment
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...
growing food/gardening, community-building, circular economy, reducing the use of harmful chemicals
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 interested in supporting projects that address environmental justice and building community around the interest areas I listed above. I love biking, gardening, and volunteering. I have strong administrative/organizational skills and grant-writing experience. I also have topic area expertise (I teach and conduct research in environmental engineering), particularly around environmental contaminants and links to human and ecosystem health.
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 have a particular project in mind at this time. I have recently moved to Vancouver and am looking for ways to get involved in my community and learn more about local issues and strategies.
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
