Community Food Resiliency: Who, What, How, and When?

,

From Here to There: Food, Energy and Resilient Communities, Part Two.

What is the future of food in Vancouver, especially as cheap energy sources peak and climate change intensifies? In partnership with the Vancouver Food Policy Council and Village Vancouver Transition Society, MOV is pleased to host an interactive public dialogue and presentations from local innovators, authors, and practitioners, that encourages people to think about the local circumstances and possibilities for change, here in Vancouver.

Outcomes and key learnings from the first community visioning event held at MOV, on December 7, 2011, hosted in order to stimulate and support the development of a Vancouver Food Energy Descent Action Plan (FED-AP). Following this, a panel discussion addressing some key elements that must be addressed in order to achieve Community Food Resiliency, will be convened.

Join us as we convene this critical dialogue across disparate sectors, neighborhoods, and areas of practice, as we set out to collaboratively understand, and articulate a vision for a “powered-down, resilient, re-localized future”, as well as outline practical steps and actions for getting there.

Key community organizations involved in ongoing community food projects and a cross-sector of interested individuals will come together to co-create this vision and share their knowledge, resources and inspiration to further initiatives and focus on the strategies of the FED-AP.

Targeted at change and policy makers, related organizations, students, and all individuals interested in Food activism and community building, the event will run on December 7th from 5:30 to 8:30 PM with light refreshments available.

Speakers and Registration tba.

The evening is by donation, with proceeds supporting MOV and future public dialogues.

Presentations and Dialogue begins at 6:00PM
