Since August 2005, we have been working toward the relocalization of communities in Boulder County. In March 2006 we launched the BOULDER COUNTY GOING LOCAL! Campaign, with five key themes that are supported through a variety of events and publications:
- BUY LOCAL FIRST!
- EAT LOCAL!
- GROW LOCAL!
- LOCAL ENERGY!
- LOCAL CURRENCY!
In September 2007, we hosted A RENAISSANCE OF LOCAL!, a three-day county-wide festival, conference, and expo attended by more than 900 people. We also published Boulder County's first EAT LOCAL! Resource Guide in magazine format, now available online at www.eatlocalguide.com.
In May 2008, we became the first officially-recognized Transition Initiative in North America and subsequently changed our business name to TRANSITION BOULDER COUNTY.
In September, we delivered the first Training for Transition in the U.S., for leaders of local initiatives and "mullers" considering bringing Transition to their communities.
