Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
For many years, through my education in environmental design and ecological systems, as a land use planner developing sustainable policies for rural and urban environments, as a practicing architectural designer, as a Passive House Consultant-in-Training, and as a researcher into methods of self-organizing bio-regional change to sustainable lifestyles. I have only now formally become involved in the "Transition Movement" in Vermont.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
see above
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 planner and design professional, I have been looking into the relationship between human settlement and natural systems for over 30 years. Sustainability and ecological design were practicing concepts long before a Transition movement. Perhaps I can share some of my experience.

Hello David - Tina Clarke recommended I get in touch with you. I am part of the initiating team for a transitions group here in rural Washington Co. NY. We have a training scheduled from March 19 & 20 in Greenwich NY, which is about 30 minutes west of Bennington. We wanted to make sure we invited VT residents to our training, if it makes sense for them to join us. More and more trainings are cropping up around the region. Would you be wiling to relay information to those you think would be interested? - Thanks, Barbara
