Randy Chatterjee commented on lane's group '2010 NORTHWEST TRANSITION/PERMACULTURE CONVERGENCE'
"After Whatcom's great Great Unleashing, I look forward to learning how it's done in the big city. I'll take the train down again, even though they've raised the fares astronomically since the winter."

"Dave, You are on the right track, and Vancouver is a perfect paragon of all the negative aspects of growth. SIted in a once beautiful environment inhabited by hundreds of thousands of native settlers living comfortably off the land, the growth at…"

Randy Chatterjee replied to Judith Newton's discussion 'Garden Share (Yardsharing in UK-speak ;-)' in the group Yardsharing!
"We in Vancouver (western Canada) have been yardsharing for food production for several years now, mostly on a tithing basis, aka the owner gets his or her pick, but the lion's share stays with the "tenant farmer." It may sound a bit…"

Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I am on the Board of Village Vancouver, the host network for the Transition Town initiative and movement in Vancouver, British Columbia.

I am also on the Board of Neighbourhoods for a Sustainable Vancouver, a network of resident and neighbourhood associations, ratepayer groups, local area councils, and community advocacy groups, all advocating together for resilient and ecological planning and development and social justice.

Finally, I am a director of Neighbours Organic Weekly Buying Club (NOWBC.CA), a local organic food buying service that delivers efficiently to neighbourhood hubs to which you can walk to pick up the freshest, low-carbon produce possible.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Behind the clear ecological and economic imperatives, the potential gains in community engagement, empowerment, and democratization are the most compelling reasons to think and act in the ways of Transition.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
My first career was in UN industrial development, at the time when the idea of "sustainable development" was explored for the first time. We ultimately failed, because the intergovernmental system of foreign aid could not support indigenous capacity-building or respect diverse livelihoods and cultures.

I know and act on low-carbon, low-impact ways of living, including sustainable housing renewal, renewable energy, urban agriculture, local community-building, and appropriate modes of transportation.

I am also now a filmmaker, and use high-definition video technology both to learn and teach.

Village Vancouver is a network of social and political activists established to communicate and organize the wider adoption of sustainable lifestyles and build resilient neighbourhoods.

Neighbourhoods for a Sustainable Vancouver is a network organization with both a research arm and outreach function, is more politically-involved, and is largely dedicated to the same ends as VV.

Finally, NOWBC is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) project with a high-tech twist: custom weekly ordering. It also features low-carbon fulfillment and a strong local community-building distribution system. Check out www.nowbc.ca,

Hi Randy,

I'm relatively new to Vancouver (six months) and just recently discovered this forum/site. I would love to meet sometime and discuss the projects you're working on... my life is a bit internet saturated, so, if there's anything coming up that you think I might be interested in--please let me know, or we can just set up a time to meet.

Well, not quite perfect, but the beginning of something. Bummed we'll barely be able to cross paths. I'm shooting in Seattle through lunch Thursday, then barely making an interview in Vancouver at 4 and then a film screening that kicks off the conference Thursday night. We might meet at the screening should you elect to come. Friday morning is a good possibility to get together with you. Perhaps we can meet for breakfast.

Pleasse do ask around on the lodging for 2. My volunteer assistant actually prefers to sleep on the floor, so only one bed is necessary.

I'd really like to meet you and see some of the footage, and explore whether we might incorporate some in our film. And I believe I can find time for another interview or two.

Lastly, I'm hoping we might find a kindred spirit who would volunteer a place for us to stay, since we are operating on a shoestring.

We will be in Vancouver April 29 - May 2.

Thanks so much for writing!
