MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....
How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I do what I can to live more sustainably - reusing, recycling, making my house more energy-efficient, growing vegies, walking instead of driving when possible. I educate myself by attending lectures - Jill Richardson, Joel Salatin, Richard Heinberg, etc, reading, watching documentaries, and attending permaculture events. Want to get more involved and more connected with others who have a similar perspective.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I'm interested in becoming more financially independent and less at the mercy of the big corporations. I'm interested in reducing consumption and waste. I'm interested in becoming part of a resilient community, especially in my neighborhood - inner NE Portland.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I don't know how to knit or can food or build houses. My best skills are facilitation, organizing, website design, etc.
