How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Facilitating a Transitions initiative in our village, as well as an upcoming Transition Training for the region
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
My primary concerns are two-fold: how can we sustainably grow and distribute food within our region, and how do we accommodate and care for the aging population in our community as their needs increase and their independence decreases.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
As a community activist, I simply want to borrow from what Transition communities have already discovered in order to apply these theories and techniques to our community. The more people who are aware of the movement and trying to build sustainable communities the stronger the larger movement will become.

Hi Barbara - Thanks for the invite to the training in Greenwich. I'll pass along the info to the Walloomsac group. It might help if you send some info via email. That way I could forward it a bit easier. You can reach me at ecologosllc (at) gmail (dot) com. I'm looking forward to seeing what our neighbors are up to. Cheers, David
Suggest you join Transition Vermont, create an 'event' for the training, then join Walloomsac Transition and TT Manchester. Then send a 'message to group' which goes to all members, with the link to the event. Your event will be visible to all close to 1000 of the site. Sorry so brief, gotta go!
You recently asked about how to make a link between Global Transition and your Facebook site. The easiest way is to open the page you want to link to on FB and copy the URL -- here's mine for example -- http://www.facebook.com/The.Pied.Skyper -- then go to the page on this site and paste it into the space where you want it to appear. I hope I've answered your question. If not, don't hesitate to get back to me. Happy 2011!

On the local scene, does Greenwich have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup? If so, it would be spot on for all our members if you would consider including a link to Greenwich 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 be glad to help launch and build your link. Do you want to do it?
