Kevin Thomson - Vancouver, BC, Canada

Personal Vision:  

I’m a kind, light-hearted playful creator of memorable moments. I provoke change and challenge the comfort zones of myself and others. I embrace wisdom, friendships, the elevation of happiness and the happiness of elevation. I am present and I am ready.

2019 update

I've spent three years on a new project that was to be launched in 2018. We called it "SkyHugger - Lions Gate Bridge Climb" and we received permission from Province of BC to do a trial period. Then came the controversy, and the election and the new Minister of Transportation who denied the project.

Yet it still remains viable and we will persevere.

Meanwhile, I have been given the incredible opportunity to work alongside David Katz in the development of his "Plastic Bank" idea (www.plasticbank.com). This exciting social enterprise exists to stop ocean plastic through revealing value in the material and the ethical collection of it throughout the developing world. An incredible global team and an irresistible vision of what could occur. It is an honour to be part of this adventure.
