Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I have started a local business alliance (a BALLE network) to help with relocalization of the economy in Denver and Colorado.

I have created an online business directory with 430,000 Colorado-based businesses for reconnecting community with these businesses and increasing transparency about the environmental sustainability and social responsibility of their business practices.

I'm working with other communities to leverage the open source tools we built for creating local business directories for their communities and locales.

I have launched a number of local currencies and have a company which helps communities and companies design, implement, launch and manage currencies. We have been building open source tools to make this process easier for communities.

I am promoting sustainable money which integrates triple-bottom-line processes into the monetary supply instead of requiring businesses to increase the complexity of their accounting. Learn about triple bottom line money.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
The TRANSITION to a more sustainable post-peak-oil economy is not only healthy, but necessary. The only question is will it be sudden and painful, or can we be proactive enough to make the transition with some grace.

I vote for grace... but things may be falling apart faster than I expected. :)
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I'm currently focused on bringing Transition movement's ideals of community and sustainability to the financial and business sectors.

Again, you can learn more about triple bottom line money here.
