How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I'm participating in the Capital Region Sustainability Plan, identifying Sustainability groups in the Warren and Washington Counties/ Glens Falls, New York area.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I;m a long-time environmental activist, having helped coordinate Earth Day activities in the Capital District (Albany, Schenectady and Troy) of New York, as well as having worked in several environmentally related jobs.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I feel that Transition Towns and Initiatives are the key to developing and implementing Sustainability Plans, because they provide a source of ideas and then have the contacts to inform others in their communities about how to implement them.
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Transition Movement
My "bible" is "Envisioning a Sustainable Society: Learning Our Way Out," by Lester C. Milbrath (1989). Milbrath stresses the importance of "Societal Learning" and he provides a detailed pathway towards a Sustainable Society.
A more recent book is equally important is "Sustainability Unpacked: Food, Energy and Water for Resilient Environments and Socities," by Kristiina A. Vogt, et al. (2007), which provides the results of the latest research on sustainability and stresses the importance of Forests (for some reason not mentioned in the title) for the health of a region. It also provides a model for what it calls "Sustainability Capital," and indicates the factors that lead to its increase and decrease.
