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 am following Rob's roadmap as closely as possible in my personal life, I am promoting local foods here in Vermont working with the State to create regional food production models.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
We are all going over the cliff, I see TTI as the branch to grab onto on the way down....
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I think the physical limits will force us into a corner of sorts that will turn the people who are unaware into aware people pretty quickly..... when they see what we are doing they will realize it is the only exit strategy...

Thanks for getting back to me. I am going out of town for a couple of days. Will you be available Monday ? Give a range of times, perhaps? I'll be at home writing, so my time is flexible. I'm on Eastern time just as you are --- we can chat for 10-15 minutes and continue to talk about Fair Trade. Interesting what you are doing -- I, too, believe that it is important to get Fair Trade tools in place as we prepare major shifts in food distribution systems. Happy New Year.
Hi Jeff - Want to talk by phone for a few minutes some time? I would love to find out what you are doing in Fair Trade. Also, I'm curious about Rob. You can find out some things about me on my website www.tradneandsustainabilitiy.com
Welcome Jeff! Great to see you here on Transition U.S. and Transition Middlebury. "... I am following Rob's roadmap as closely as possible in my personal life, I am promoting local foods here in Vermont working with the State to create regional food production models..." -- Super. Speaking as the original designer of this social network, I'd be interested in helping to promote your skills beyond your personal life, if that would be desirable to you.
If you haven't already done so, come and see the new US Transition Page . As this page develops, it will become a map of Transition resources across all ning sites. All 50 states are now active. Many state sites are brand new! Go to TRANSITION VERMONT and sign in. Invite others. Enter some of your local events. Start Discussions. Make Transition! Have fun!
Hi Jeff- Les Squiresgave me your name as a contact regarding Fair Trade. I'm involved in it here in Michigan -- writing, teaching, public speaking, etc. My work links me with Mexico, Ecuador, and Nicaragua.
