In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
i believe our planet is in an ecological crisis. All systems are collasping, we must, as a species curb our consumptive ways or vanish.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I can help by helping to organize GREEN MOVIE NIGHTS, which screen relevant and powerful films that will help drive the conversation about what's happening to the earth and what we can do to transform our relationship with each other and the planet.
These events can draw new people to the movement as well as raise funds for each transition community.
