Welcome 2015 Community Partners!
by Toby Barazzuol on Friday May 15, 2015

Wow, you guys did not make it easy, but after days of deliberations, we finally emerged with five new Community Partners for 2015! There was a wide variety of applicants this year and all are worthy organizations doing inspiring work, however we could only select five.

Our new Community Partners are all organizations that we admire and respect and they work in diverse areas such as community economic development, forest protection, youth education, skills building. All of them are involved in community building and are working towards making the world a better place for all of us.

We selected these community partners based on the amazing work they are already doing, and how their work might enhance our vision to:

...create beautiful things that make people happy, build resilient communities, regenerate the environment, and transform the way people think about recognition.

We hope that you’ll take a deeper look at these organizations, like and follow them on social media, and watch as our journey together unfolds over the next few years.  Without further delay, here are our 2015-2018 Community Partners: 

BALLE: Be A Localist - a national organization focussed on social justice, food security, resilient communities and real prosperity for all.

Board of Change - an inclusive business network fostering an economic model that values the pursuit of sustainability.


Canopy - works with the forest industry’s biggest customers to protect the world’s forests, species and climate. We love these guys!


EYA: Environmental Youth Alliance -  a non-profit charity that cultivates transformative nature experiences for children and youth in urban environments to foster community connectedness, build ecological leadership skills, and enhance their well-being.


Potluck Cafe Society - a social enterprise focussed on transforming lives by creating jobs and providing healthy food for people living in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.

We’re excited about working with these organizations to see what we can accomplish together through collaboration and sharing resources.

Big thanks to all the wonderful organizations and companies that applied this year. We hope that you will consider applying again during our next intake in 2016. Onwards good people, there is much for us to do!
