Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Long (detailed) answer... thefindingfiniteproject.wordpress.com

Short (summarized) answer... The Projects Purpose and Task
Segment One: To develop the governing dynamics (initiatives, operational structures & protocols) for a cohesive and cooperative community culture in line with a self-sustainable village. Instead of rebuilding our Urban/Suburban unsustainable infrastructures, the program would be tasked to promote the localized and more logistically plausible retrofitting of existing dwellings (neighborhoods). These “Neighborhood Villages” would then develop into a town, city, state, and national network of such villages. Recognizing the eminent failure to sustain its inhabitants within the current systems, this program will educate, direct, and help manage a practical and sustainable paradigm. Its purpose is to first establish a civil continuity, then awareness/informational structure, a resource (energy, food, and water) collective, and finally a feasible localized governance to secure each village and its inhabitants. The reason or need for the program is to avoid mass population displacement & disorder while easing the transitional challenges brought on by a system that was planned, built, and entirely reliant on cheap fossil fuels. While providing a societal structure that sustains, stabilizes, and further attempts to unify its population.

Segment Two: The multiple layered awareness efforts of the program, its purpose, and the reason it is needed. Be that publications, documents/editorials, documentary/films, and/or celebrity endorsement and alignments.

Segment Three: The completion and publishing (not sure about paper publishing) of the book and manual titled “Finding Finite”.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
It is going to take a village. Please take the time to read our projects purpose, and we will take our time learning from you.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
Sorry to keep putting in the blog link, but it is the best way for you to know me and our intentions. thefindingfiniteproject.wordpress.com

Suggestions you have for improving our Registration questions. Getting to know you better.
I have a few, but would rather interface in a human way so that the information doesn't get misconstrued. I look forward to it.

Will check out your site, eagerly. Glad to be invited into friendship, collaboration. In synch with every aspect of the short statement of your vital and ambitious project. Would like to participate in Part/stage two. Doing a workshop at John Cobb's conference, Brave New Planet: Imagining Ecological Communities, Oct 27-29, Claremont. There's a prettier page, but this popped up first: http://imaginingecologicalcommunities.wordpress.com/ You should be there, I think. MicKibben, Orr--conversation around your issues.

Welcome Christopher,

Great to see your interest in Transition! Welcome to GLOBAL TRANSITION IN ACTION. You mention in your registration "...Sorry to keep putting in the blog link, but it is the best way for you to know me and our intentions...."   It would be spot on for all our members if you would consider including a link to your http://thefindingfiniteproject.wordpress.com/ 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. That way we can introduce our two groups to each other. Are you interested? I'll be glad to help launch and build your link.

Great photo.

Again, welcome!
