As a small business owner in Vancouver, I like that Vancity is taking on big topics while applying them and their impact to local businesses and consumers. Not to mention, offering a sweet Marketplace at this event, full of incredible local vendors. All attendees will get a $5 token they can use to redeem a gift from any of the participating vendors, who are all putting the planet and people before profit:
East Van Roasters
Flavours of Hope
Hives for Humanity
Hope in Shadows
Immigrant Services Society of BC|
Here’s the full scoop on the event from Vancity:
We live in a globally entwined economic system. But it’s on a collision course with the finite boundaries of our world. Relentless growth has consequences, and we’re seeing those in the ever-widening wealth gap, effects on climate change, and social displacement—among other crises. Our finance-driven economic system is in urgent need of transformation.
Might Regenerative Economics be just the solution we are looking for? Guided by universal patterns and principles that describe how all healthy living systems that sustain themselves in the real world actually work, the promise of Regenerative Economics is to unlock the profound (and presently unseen) potential that is the source of our future prosperity and the reason for hope in our troubled times.
Through interactive displays, event guests will have an opportunity to engage with local organizations and learn about the ways these Vancouver area businesses are actively transforming their communities.
I’ll be there on February 19th to learn more and you can follow the conversation online through the tag #BankingOnValues, on Instagram @Vancitycu, and on Twitter @Vancity.
