I am new to Global Transition In Action, so I wanted to post some information about an initiative that I am currently volunteering at called Open Source Ecology. We are building, what we call, the Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) – a set of 40 open source machines meant to jump-start community resilience and lower the barriers-to-entry.
The machines are being built and shared via open source methods, so we can freely provide the information and plans necessary to build resilient communities from the ground up. We are 100% crowd-funded by supporters, which we call True Fans --and we welcome you to join us. This is our latest video showcasing the GVCS, which was created by a True Fan: http://vimeo.com/16431347
We would be grateful if you could pass our work on to your friends, family and partners, and encourage them to support and collaborate with us. We are also interested in speaking engagements. The commitment of a single new True Fan is enough to fund a trip for guest speaking or a presentation by the founder of Open Source Ecology, Marcin Jakubowski, Ph.D. This month we will be on a tour in California to present our vision and progress to several Transition Town initiatives. It is in this light that we believe everyone should have access to the tools necessary to create true community resilience.
