Village Vancouver is metro Vancouver's official Transition Town Initiative. We connect people in community and build community self reliance in response to challenges posed by climate change, peak oil, economic insecurity and instability, and social injustice, in tangible, constructive and celebratory (fun!) ways.

We run on people power. Members get involved on the basis of what interests them. (Currently, there are a few thousand of us.)

Join us in creating sustainable and resilient neighbourhoods and communities.

For more information on our neighbourhood transition villages and neighbourhood food networks, and other community networks, working groups, projects, workshops, and other activities, please visit

For more information on the worldwide Permaculture inspired Transition Town movement, please visit

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
