RangiChangi makes a habit of holding its public events in easy-to-get-to locations in downtown Vancouver. In an attempt to reflect, and to celebrate our multicultural population, we like to hold our community gatherings in local restaurants that serve cuisine from different countries of the world.
Our first event, on March 30th ‘Green is More Than Just White’ was held at The Vallarta Grill in Gastown. Our June 22nd event ‘Storytelling at the Intersection of Climate and Culture’ was held at Maple Grill (Vancouver’s only kosher restaurant). We would like to thank the owners and managers of the Vallarta and Maple Grill in Kitsilano, for their generosity in allowing us to host our events at their restaurants.
We are a grassroots completely volunteer-run group. As such, we would like to recognize the people who we invite to speak to the public on climate action and community outreach by giving them a token of everyone’s appreciation. These people are leaders in their communities and experts in their fields, sharing their time, knowledge and experience.
On June 22nd, the Saul Good Gift Company, generously provided gifts of appreciation on behalf of RangiChangi to our speakers. Saul Good Gifts provides sustainable gifts that are beneficial to the health of our community, and environment. The items come responsibly packaged and are filled with premium local and organic products from Vancouver, BC. By working with local Vancouver social enterprises and
neighbourhood businesses they ensure that the gifts give back to the community and have extra added value. Thank you to a conscious and giving Vancouver company!
