On April 2nd, 2009 the Strathcona BIA held Sustainability 2.0 in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Although this seaside community is one of the poorest in Canada, there is a highly motivate grassroots movement to transform this community for its citizens. The keynote speaker was Majora Carter. I recorded her moving and powerful story. Also on this recording is a short account by the newly appointed Deputy Mayor of the City of Vancouver, BC., Andrea Reimer. These are dynamic speakers who have been successful in working with communities for amazing social change. A technical note: I was on the left side of the audience. the stereo mic was facing the audience, so the speakers will be on the left side of the sound field.

If you’d like to see more of Ms. Carter, as well as some of her pictures, follow this link to her presentation to TED Talks.
