Vancouver Participatory Economics Collective

Welcome to the homepage of the Vancouver Parecon Collective! Our purpose is to advocate, research and implement parecon institutions, values and procedures in Vancouver, the surrounding lower mainland and elswhere throught Canada. We do this through workshops, information sharing and activism. We are committed to supporting struggles against classism, racism, sexism, war, corporate greed, environmental destruction, and all other institutional horrors we face today.

"A great many activists and concerned people ask, quite rightly, what alternative form of social organization can be imagined that might overcome the grave flaws -- often real crimes -- of contemporary society in more far-reaching ways than short-term reform. Parecon is the most serious effort I know to provide a very detailed possible answer to some of these questions, crucial ones, based on serious thought and careful analysis."
-- Noam Chomsky

Below are some photos of Robin Hahnel's visit to Vancouver this past summer. He spoke on June 27 to a packed room at the World Peace Forum. The Vanparecon collective was completely thrilled to host him for a couple of action-packed days, topped off by a relaxing evening at Sunset Beach.


Marla and Matt introducing Robin's talk.


While Robin drops some science, Marla and Chris are too polite to tell Robin he has some hummus on his face.


Robin joined the collective for a picnic at the beach. Notice Robin, confident in his Brazilian soccer team jacket. Little did he know they were soon to fail in their bid to win the World Cup.
