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'm not currently deeply involved. I have read the Transition Handbook and various publications on peak oil, climate change, permaculture, etc. I have also completed a Transition training.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Ultimately, something like Transition is our only hope of survival with our decency and humanity intact.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I offer some unique perspectives that I think are largely missing from Transition. 1) As a gay man, I feel that the movement needs to be more inclusive and needs to grow beyond the small-town and rural environments where gay people are often not comfortable or welcome. 2) While I am not personally from a blue-collar background, my partner is, and we live in a blue-collar town. The current focus of Transition has little appeal here. Transition needs more of a bread-and-butter focus and a focus on practical means of survival NOW, not just in a hypothetical future world. Transition needs to be more responsive to the concerns of people less educated and lower on the socioeconomic scale in order to do more than create vulnerable islands of illusory resilience.
