The Change Chats Grant - Vancouver 2017
The grant is for any grassroots project or idea focused on creating positive change.
The money was raised from the proceeds of The Change Chats Vancouver and the support of:
Arran Stephens – Co-Founder, Nature’s Path Foods
Felix Böck – Founder, Chop Value
Rene Gauthier – Co-Founder, Sitka
Slava Goloubov –www.slavagoloubov.com

Originally there was to be one winner. Fortunately, the amazing team at Van Urban Timber heard about the grant and decided to match fund the money raised allowing for two grant winners.
The winners were voted on by all the volunteers and other involved in making the event a reality.
The winner of The Change Chats Grant is Conlan Mansfield of Feral Strength
The winner of the Van Urban Timber Grant is Ian Black.
It's not a lot of money, but as one of the speakers, Marc Schutzbank, said,"You plant a tiny seed, you nurture it and something so much bigger can grow". So, let's see what we can grow from these small seeds.
