In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Riley Park-South Cambie
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...
environmental sustainability, ecological and social resilience and justice.
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!)
Yoga instruction, Project coordination, Event planning, enthusiasm.
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?
Eliminate reliance on fossil fuel economy, create more sustainable and affordable public transit, more local food production, community connections, participate in deep green resistance.
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 am seeking a position where I can use my understanding of social-ecological systems to resolve contemporary environmental problems and plan for the maintenance and restoration of social, cultural, and ecological integrity and resilience.

ForestEthics - Because protecting forests is everyone's business

Posted on October 19, 2011 at 2:56pm 0 Comments

Hey there,


We have a chance to save a forested area the size of Maine from destruction by Canada's Tar Sands, but we need a lot of people to chime in to do it.

Dole and Chiquita produce half of the world's bananas, and because bananas require so much fuel to reach our fruit bowls, we need banana producers to use the cleanest fuels available to protect our health and our planet. Can you ask Dole and Chiquita to reject the Tar Sands in favor of cleaner…
