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.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
