Event Details

Registration/Doors at 4:30PM
Event from 5:00 to 7:30 PM

In partnership with the Vancouver Food Policy Council and Village Vancouver Transition Society, MOV is hosting a public dialogue in order to support the development of a Vancouver Food Energy Descent Action Plan (FED-AP) to address Community Food Resiliency.  Join us on Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2011 for a community visioning event that encourages people to think about the future of food in Vancouver, especially as cheap energy sources peak and climate change intensifies.

An Energy Descent Action Plan is a visioning process that outlines steps to help move us from being a high energy to low energy use region.  Specifically, it sets out to collaboratively articulate a vision for a “powered-down, resilient, re-localized future”, as well as outline practical steps and actions for getting there.  The plan is meant to be a user-friendly, inclusive and practical document for both local government and the community.

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 5:00 to 7:30 PM with light refreshments available.

The evening is by donation, with proceeds supporting MOV and another public dialogue in February 2012.
