How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I am organizing our local transition campaign around a Farm-to-School effort to feed 100% local, organic food to Muskegon County schoolchildren year-round. Food for our children represents one of the strongest remaining elements of our social contract. It involves virtually all aspects of the change we need to make. Visit our website - www.HealthySchoolMeals.org.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Survive and thrive. If my time on this Earth is to mean anything I must work to ensure a sustainable, healthy, joyous life for my children and my neighbors.
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 an organizer and a filmmaker. I use both skills to promote this change.
