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....

In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I am interested in helping people work together as a community to transition into a renewable energy economy. I am happy to live in a town where over 10% of our electricity comes from two town-owned wind turbines. I am also very aware of the consequences of sea level rise as much of our peninsular town is about 15 feet above high tide. I care deeply about whales, dolphins, animals, plants, and all of Earth.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
Live sustainably, which is a joy, and reach out to others
Welcome Judeth! Great to see you here on Transition U.S. "... I am interested in helping people work together as a community to transition into a renewable energy economy..." -- Good to hear. What would you think about creating a Group here on this site for each of the groups you listed.... The Group function has a link to outside websites, so you can point MA members to their various offerings. Social networking isn't only for friends meeting friends; it's for groups meeting groups.
Come and see the new US Transition Map we rolled out this past weekend. As this page develops, it will become a map of U.S. and World Transition resources. All 50 states are now active. Many state sites are brand new! Go to MASSACHUSETTS and sign in. Invite others. Enter some of your local events. Start Discussions. Make Transition! Have fun!
