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...
I a community builder.. working on social inclusion of marginalized groups (particularly low income immigrant and refugee communities) and wellbeing at work. I'm interested in finding efficient way to use visual art or art in general to increase public awareness about challenging environmental and social issues. I'm interested in advocacy in general
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 would like to meet with someone from Village Vancouver to understand better your mission and vision and see if any of my professional experience and skills could be a good fit for current and future projects.
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'm working on project that aims addressing the need for greater access to wellness practices and connectivity inside and outside the chaotic professional world of social and environmental activism (using art, regenerative power of nature, music and by also integrating indigenous wisdom and traditional healing and storytelling practices)
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.
Don't feel like answering all the questions now? No worries, just tell us briefly why you're interested in joining at this time, and you can come back and update your profile later.
I would love to meet with someone to know more about your work and find a meaningful way to engage with any current and future projects. Thank you
