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....
How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I have been active with the Transition Whatcom group, and attended trainings locally and regionally.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I have been aware of Peak Oil for 5 years through my participation with the Quaker Institute of the Future. It closely parallels the work of Quaker Earthcare Witness and resonates with me. We need broad, multi-faceted approaches to the sharing of information and the points of contact for the awareness and change work we are doing.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I am proposing to establish a regional umbrella 501 c 3 organization called Transition Northwest to create a donation vehicle for local Transition groups in the NW to accept deductible charitable donations, and provide umbrella event insurance coverage, to start. it could grow to become a regional administrative resource.

On the local scene, it would be spot on for all our members if you would consider including a link to what's happening in Transition Northwest in our registry of organizations, localities, companies, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability. Here's the page to create the link -- http://transitioninaction.com/groups/group/new. I'll meet you at the door to help build and launch your link.
