For the last several years, BCSEA has had an office at Energy Alternatives in Victoria. We’re grateful to EA’s owner and BCSEA Founding member Kevin Pegg for a very generous rental rate, network access, space in his server room and lots of technical help over the years.
With Nigel and the rest of the staff happy to work from home, we no longer need an office, so we’ve decided to rent a ‘virtual’ office space at The HiVE Vancouver. Our mail will be received and forwarded there, and our new phone number will ‘ring’ on their computer.
This is better suited to our current organisation, will reduce our overhead costs even more, and save some electricity and commuting time too.
We’ll now receive paper Canada Post mail at a postal box in Victoria.
Here’s the new coordinates:
e-mail contact continues to be email@example.com
We’ve set up a Canada Post forward for a year, and our old phone number will ring through to the new one for a while, so we hope to not lose any communications.
We’ve also moved our websites and e-mail to ‘the cloud’ so we will be shutting down the old servers and saving power soon.

On June 10-17th 2013, young leaders will converge in Istanbul, Turkey for a landmark gathering. 500 grassroots climate activists and leaders from around the world will meet, train, share skills and stories, and prepare for the next phase of the global climate movement.
After leaving Turkey, they will fan out across the world to catalyze powerful national movements calling for bold climate action. Through a series of national summits and trainings, they will unleash a new wave of climate activism.
Are you a young climate leader? Do you want to attend? There’s an application process, and a deadline on January 4th, 2013.
Candidates will be selected based on their previous work for the climate movement, and/or their future plans, as well as experience in online and offline campaigning, communication, fundraising, mobilizing, networking, and movement building. Willingness and capacity to organize national or regional events in your home country will be a massive plus! Thereís a lower age limit of 18, but no strict upper limit.
“Climate change is the single biggest thing humans have done to this planet. The one thing that needs to be bigger is our movement to stop it.” – Bill McKibben, 350.org founder.

Scallions, hoisin sauce and ginger give this pork-and-turkey meatloaf great flavor and plenty of vegetables boost the fiber and nutrients. We love the texture of brown rice as a filler in this healthy Asian-flavored meatloaf rec…
