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?
We - Andrée Zaleska and Ken Ward – are interested in a Boston metro Transition, particularly a Jamaica Plain-Roslindale neighborhood component.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
One useful strategy in averting climate cataclysm and an innovative means for building a community of interest.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
Our project, the Jamaica Plain/Roslindale Green House, has 3 interlinked aims: to serve as a demonstration in achieving passivhaus standards on a low budget, rehabbing an abandoned, 100 year old former corner store; to serve as a climate campaigning hub for 350.org and other sustainability efforts, and; to build community in the Bourne neighborhood, which stradles JP and Roslindale in Boston. All three aims seem to us to fit well with the Transition Movement ethos and goals.
