Transition Town Anchorage

A networking group of ordinary citizens working to move Anchorage into resilient neighborhoods living well in a world  beyond cheap oil, climate change and economic collapse.

Group Type: Transition Town
Members: 11

Anchorage Transition is a networking organization where all those interested in building resilient and sustainable communities in Alaska can connect, find fellowship, share information, create partnerships, and celebrate steps forward.

Our goal is to educate the community of Anchorage about Peak Oil, Climate Change and our Economic Crises, in order to inspire everyone to live more sustainably into the future.  We hope to make Anchorage an official Transition Town.

Another victory!  We've turned on DAILY SCAN FOR NEWS OF TRANSITION ANCHORAGE.  Items of interest to Anchorage Transitioners.  Updated several times daily.  And automatically.  Hope you enjoy it, Kate and Cindee!

Hi TT Anchorage;

We're doing an Alaska-wide group Skype on Sept. 1 @ 6 pm Alaska time. This will be an informal call to talk about what everyone is doing with the Transition Movement or general topics on sustainability state-wide. If you'd like to be included in the call, please let me know. Thx!

Hi Anchorage;

I'm trying to put together a skype group meeting on Sept. 1 (either @ 6 or 7 pm). The topic will be an informal discussion about groups who are trying to (loosely) follow the transition model (Rob Hopkins). Skype can include up to 24 people. If you'd like to be included in this call, please send me your skype address. Thx!

Thanks, Kate! We're all here at the Permaculture Course, so your time spent here is very valuable for us.

Kate, you're doing a super job! Along with Racine Wisconsin, the two of you will be our leaders. Pretty painless, huh? Who in your group wants to be Admins and help to create the Alaska group portfolio? Go ahead and turn them on! Oh yes, and be sure to reference Anchorage in the Alaska portfolio.
