Profile Information

What attracted you to become a member?
I am one of the founding steering committee members of Transition Ottawa. In 2009, my organization, the Canadian Biodiversity Institute, was working on a project called Redesigning Ottawa: Transitioning to a Resilient Future. For many reasons, it made sense to meld this with the transition movement and help create a new transition initiative in Ottawa/Eastern Ontario which could carry these ideas for action forward.
If you are from the Ottawa area, in what neighbourhood area do you live (i.e. Nepean, Centre Town, Glebe, Vanier, etc.)

Hi Heather - Just sent you a Friend Request as I wanted to submit something for your report to the City of Ottawa regarding their "Choosing Our Future" project!  Thanks!

Hullo Heather! I have just joined so as to reach the steering committee and put this question to you. I am doing an MA in Environmental Education and Communication online and I live "up the valley". For my thesis research I wondered if it would be beneficial to interview folks within Transition Town Ottawa to see what vocations are in need of "greening" or what skills are most needed and then taking the findings to Algonquin College. If there's someone else that I should contact then please let me know. I am only writing to you for starters. Best wishes. Natalie

Hi Heather,

Good to meet you ( I think) at the Choosing our future conference. Still interested in mapping the relationships between the different volunteer groups in Ottawa.

Lucky you, Eric. Hope to see you in the spring then. I'm sure there will be another event offered by TO. I'll probably do one myself! Bye for now. Enjoy your sunshine!

I'd love to join you on the 19th, Heather. But, I'm 2000 km South of Ottawa until early April... hiding from winter on St. Simons Island, Georgia.

Hi Heather!

LOVE Transition Towns and am trying to get it going in Toronto on a neighbourhood scale.

Could you tell me how you got started in Ottawa??
