Change Projectors 2011

A full week has passed since the conclusion of Projecting Change Film Festival 2011, and we are still in awe of all the fabulous films we’ve had the privilege of showcasing this year. Throughout the festival and beyond, we’ve received incredible praise of each and every film by our festival patrons. It’s great to hear that everyone had such a positive viewing experience and that these films have inspired many of us to action and change! In particular, this year’s […]

Talking Greenest City With Andrea Reimer

If you are a regular attendee of Green events in Vancouver than you have probably bumped into Andrea Reimer. Andrea was elected to Vancouver City Council in 2008 after serving as a Vancouver School Board Trustee (2002-2005). Andrea was the first councilor to be elected in Canada under the Green Party banner and has continued to be an advocate for Green ever since. I’ve seen Andrea speak at a number of different events from The Great Turning Unconference to a […]

Projecting Change With Clean Technology

I met Thomas Kineshanko at Whistler #4 Pecha Kucha where he was presenting along side Shawn Smith, a colleague and friend of mine from Education Generation. If you haven’t heard about Pecha Kucha it’s a must check out event *inspiration* meets rapid fire presentations! I was blown away by Tom’s 20×20 slides and of course wanted to know more than the 20 seconds per slide format would allow. Tom is a carbon finance and clean-tech IT entrepreneur. He works on […]

Ecojustice – Fighting for the Planet

Throughout Karen’s career as an avid planet fighter she has led projects related to northern B.C. pipelines, gas development and climate change policy. Karen moved to […]

Projecting Change With Jeremy Murphy

The first time I met Jeremy Murphy he was introducing The Hive Vancouver to a crowd of enthusiastic green leaders at Power Plant a ‘Green Gathering for Green Leaders’ (a must checkout event). I was enamored by the idea behind The Hive, a sustainability and arts focused collaborative workspace. A quick Google search later Jeremy was on my hit list of change projectors I absolutely had to speak with! Jeremy is projecting change all over the place. In addition to […]

The event is where all of the best and brightest in sustainable development come to share and learn in what is Western Canada’s largest eco-conscious lifestyle show. Being a new writer/photographer in the social development scene, when Rebecca asked me to write […]

Vancouver is Projecting Positive Climate Change

Today, I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing (long time friend and high school classmate) but more importantly avid planet fighter, Tim Scolnick. Tim is a regular contributor on DeSmogBlog, a project that began in January 2006 and has since then become one of the world’s number one sources for alleviating the plethora of misinformation on global warming. Since high school Tim has been busily projecting change, completing graduate research on China’s climate change foreign policy, working for the European […]
