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....
"Hats of to you David! - I'll be up in Portland 27th to 30th October (Matt Bibeau and City Repair thinking of being a Gaia U node). Could be interesting to Transition Portland no? Lets meet up anyway ..."

"Andrew: Gaius Young attended our Washington Permaculture Convergence last Fall and I never heard from him again. What happens to graduates of
Gaia University? We could sure use one here.

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Native of Totnes, England and pioneer of precursor capacity building efforts that (may have) enable Transition Towns to take of with such gusto. Now developing a global university (Gaia University) that promotes Transition Town activity wherever we go (we were a significant part of the Financial Permaculture Workshop in Hohenwald, TN, USA this last October).
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Its the way to go!
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
Two of our recent Associates (Richard Khunel and Patrick Gibbs) have committed to significant TT activity partly as a result of the support arising from being in program with Gaia U. At some stage soon we expect to enroll other TT actionists and provide them with the same, high quality support that comes with the Gaia U package.
Welcome Andy! Great to see you here on Transition U.S. "... Now developing a global university (Gaia University) that promotes Transition Town activity wherever we go.." -- I continue to be impressed by the work Gaia is doing. Let us know how we can support the work Gaia is doing.
You're one of the first to see a new US Transition Map we rolled out this weekend. As this page develops, it will become a map of U.S. and World Transition resources. Hmmmm. I wonder where Mexico fits into this plan....
Andy, what projects are you working on. Are you capturing any of it on film? I sure could use some film of the Gaia university movement and its amazing progress. I have heard of you thats for sure. Well, of Gaia University. I am very busy gathering the peramculture tools for everyone. You are going to greatly love Geoff Lawtons PDC desing course, I am in post production. Nice to meet you.

Hi Andy, wonderful to see you here. Great work in Hohenwald! I'm hoping that we can explore with you how to bring the work of Gaia University to our area. We've already spawned two Transition student groups, one at Naropa University, the other at Univ. of Colorado, with hopes of those schools eventually becoming Transition Universities. I believe the ground is very fertile here, and I look forward to communicating with you.
