Profile Information

What attracted you to become a member?
To participate in the urgent change we all need to do towards a sustainable lifestyle. To learn more about how to make that Transition. To increase my learning and participation in working with community. The idea that the Transition Town concept is one of the most viable and realistic way to change our world.
If you are from the Ottawa area, in what neighbourhood area do you live (i.e. Nepean, Centre Town, Glebe, Vanier, etc.)
Altavista-Ottawa South
Would you like to be part of a transition initiative in your neighbourhood?

What issues are you interested in (Check as many as apply)?
Home energy power down, Local food resilience, Alternative vehicles, Community building, Greening Ottawa, Reskilling
What are your skills (Professional and amateur)?
I am a filmmaker by profession: Video Editor and Director.
Amateur: Photography, Cooking, Natural Farming of Fukuoka Technique (beginner, very)
How would you like to see Ottawa look and feel in the future?
A place where people not cars are the priority in all levels. Where community-based mechanisms run government, not politicians. Zero polluting vehicles and transportation systems. Buildings and homes running on sustainable energy. Without gas stations, Supermarkets or Superstores and malls, but farmers markets and community-based stores offering sustainable and useful products where most of the offer is locally produced, or from other communities with similar principles...transported by sustainable means... just to start! :)
What part would you like to contribute to this?
Food growing learning and teaching, using media to spread the word.
If you could create your ideal participation with Transition Ottawa, what would it be?
For the moment I need to learn more about the community. Probably in helping with films and video needs of the network.
