MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....
unfortunately our ning site that was reachable through http://transitionaotearoa.org.nz/ has been discontinued (it is still live, but no idea for how long.) Not many people will sign up to another site and the community will likely be lost. However, I was thinking that maybe we should redirect the domain name to this group on this worldwide Transition network. I have administered and sponsored the domain name in the past, and I'm willing to continue doing that.
Actually a further thought. There are two groups on the transitioninaction and the other is more appropriate. It is just called http://transitioninaction.com/group/linktonewzealand. Then they can find the other at will. The manifesto is a private group and I don't fancy having to approve over 1000 members!
