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?
Over the last decade, especially, have continually "refined" my way of living in order to be only minimally reliant upon consumerism, use of natural resources, packaging, motoring (ride in a vehicle, etc. only a few times per year), and more. Have educated myself (and others) regarding "peak oil," urban/suburban homesteads, purchasing minimally and locally, non-GMO/virtually all organic food choices, and - again -much more.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I think about a multitude of modern-day human choices continually. I realize, in retrospect as with more people than not - that we have pronouncedly polluted our air, water, and food-growing soil...those things that all of life most depends upon FOR life. In my opinion, our collective awareness about the detrimental effects of our cumulative human activity is worrisomely delayed. There cannot be too many of us to help educate others about all of this (as others did me) and begin to address local/world community concerns in substantive ways.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
By doing the above - continued self-education, helping to educate others, growing for self/sharing the surplus, helping others to grow substantive amounts of food, partaking minimally of all natural resources and helping others to recognize why we all need to do the same, participating in local transition movements, contributing to local community preparedness efforts.

It seems to me that the first are sufficient in their scope. I think, as an introduction, it is beneficial to keep the sign-up process...relatively succinct(?)
