Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I live in Windsor, Ontario. Since there is no local Transition Initiative, I've attended a couple of Transition Guelph events, including its recent Transition Training weekend. In addition, I have signed on to a few Transition websites located in Ontario, the UK and US. Whenever possible I promote the Transition movement program for local adoption, so far without results. I'm not prepared to personally take a leadership role in starting a local Transition initiative.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
As a responsibly informed citizen, I strongly identify with the basic principles, values, vision and goals of the Transition movement. I have read Rob Hopkins Transition Planning Handbook cover to cover and believe he offers what most other activist groups don't -- a cohesive conceptual framework and a modular and flexible planning structure that is readily adaptable by any group.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I spent most of my professional career as a librarian, specializing in the development and installation of library automated systems. In the process, I gained valuable experience in project planning and management, in facilitating meetings and in team building. Librarians are service-oriented people. Now that I’m retired I find myself looking for ways to continue to be of service to a community — in this case, a community of citizen activists. Having been a member of a few citizen action groups in Windsor, I’m well aware of the formidable challenges activists face in planning and delivering effective campaigns. It is seldom easy to find advice of the “how-we-done-it-good” kind, which prompted me to create a blog, Citizen Action Monitor, targeted at citizen activists. So far, not much traffic. And writing posts is time-consuming and damned hard work.
