Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I just started reading about Peak Oil 2 months ago and hyperventilated. Wow! After that, I decided to seek out some more positive aspects on this issue. Found Rob Hopkin's "Transition Handbook" and started asking around the community for like-minded people to form a steering committee. Set up "Kenai Resilience" Yahoo Group to get people together.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I have always been a frugal person. I don't like to see resources or money wasted. I like efficiency and seek structure. The Transition Movement offers a curriculum for getting people together, a structure.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I can talk to people in the "real world" (verses in "cyberspace"). I can be a good listener, friend, organizer, teacher, and helper.

Actually we were stealing ideas from you guys.

A few of us parents/grandparents got together and decided to do some hands on activities for the kids.  Then everyone got busy and we really havn't done it.  We were scheduled to do a monthly hands on activity starting with making some LED flashlight (a guy here made one out of a TicTac container & 3 AAA), then solar AA battery charge (no ideas or supplies yet), and gardening/aquaponics series (which was suppose to happen mid-April w/ planting seed w/ the kids but doesn't look like it). Sorry  My suggestion; just do something!

Gotcha. The magazine will launch at the end of Sept at transitionvoice.com. At that time, we'll post some links here so people can get to the articles.

We're certainly interested in finding contributors to Transition Voice. If you'd like to send us something, just email it to me at erik@transitionvoice.com. As I said, we're not paying for submissions, but there's the glory of publication :)

Hi Kate,

Thanks for joining the Transition Voice group! And if you'd ever like to submit some content to us (we're all volunteer for now) please let me know.

Regards,
Erik

Welcome Kate. Great to see you here. Feel free to invite other Alaskans to join us. BTW, I notice that your reference to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/centralkenairesilience is broken: "There is no group called centralkenairesilience. Please make sure you typed the web address correctly. If you have done so, the group may no longer exist."

Hi Kate,
Here's encouragement for those just starting out, from The Primer. It addresses (and overcomes!) "7 Barriers that Stand in the Way of a Transition Initiative." Keep up the good work!

Hi Kate,
Did you see that Les mentioned "Kenai Resilience" by name in his new Member and Group Introductions feature? Cool!

Welcome Kate! Great to see you here on Transition U.S. and Transition Alaska. You highlighted in your profile that you have "... Set up "Kenai Resilience" Yahoo Group to get people together..." -- Super! Let's find some ways to introduce our groups to each other -- what do you say...

I've just implemented Member and Group Introductions where individuals and groups can introduce themselves and interact with the rest of our members about best practices. You're surely welcome to get back in touch with me to talk further, but I'd highly recommend getting your interests in front of this broad and talented group. If you've got something already working for youself, or you belong to an existing group that you believe has something super important to teach all of us, make it known! Again, welcome!

Select "TN Resources" on the horizontal menu bar at the top of the page, and you'll see Alaska and all the other states and countries to the left. Otherwise, go to http://transitionalaska.ning.com/. I'm signing off. It's midnight here. Good luck!
At 4:37pm on March 8, 2009, Heidi Chay said…
That worked, Kate. Welcome! Now you'll want to "sign in" for the Alaska site using your same Ning ID and password. Since no one has customized the profile questions for the Alaska site, you'll need to re-enter the same information you've just entered. Then, while still at the Alaska site, create a group for Kenai Resilience.
