A message to all members of TRANSITION U.S. SOCIAL NETWORK
- Starter Kits for 50 State Portfolios
Last week we launched high level summaries of what's happening Transition-wise in 50 U.S. States. See Vermont. Wisconsin. Call up your state and use Comment Wall to submit additional activities and links for your state. Group Admins will mount your links on the portfolio. Sign up to Admin your groups of choice. It's fun. You meet tons of people. These kits now set the pace for two additional ventures -- "Transition Bioregions" and "Transition Businesses".
- Transition BioRegions
Without engaging in full-blown academic definitions of "bioregion", we are simply referring to BioRegions as population centers that cross fixed and arbitrary boundaries (city limits, states, countries, continents). BioRegions get names such as New England, Southeast Ohio, Tri-City, XYZ River Valley, Cascadia. Transition relationships in these areas deserve useful tools to facilitate their regional interaction -- to plan, to identify their memberships, to call meetings, to email each other, to share resources, to set up community centers, to trade regionally -- in short, to organize around economic and ecological sustainability.
Click here to register your BioRegion. You will be met at the door and shown the best steps to proceed.
- Transition Businesses
You have a product, service, company, organization, club, corporation, or non-profit that works hard to embody Transition values... You are invited to register it. Declare Yourself! Click here to declare your Transition Business. Make your case for Transition. You will be met at the door and shown the best steps to proceed. Let's face it, social networking is good for more than "making friends" -- it's superb for "making businesses".
See additional discussion "What is a TRANSITION BUSINESS?"
What these three activities have in common is the creation and nurturing of new normal group behavior -- traditional geographies, regional areas, and businesses that need and deserve the tools for building lasting relationships with each other.

Use TextBox to begin laying out your new group's Transition portfolio. Which Transition values do you champion particularly. Invite others to join your group. Members, join as many groups as you like. Members, use Comment Wall to volunteer to assist building these communities.
