How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I have attended local meetings as a representative of RUPCO, an affordable housing non-profit and independent contractor for NYSERDA. Through Green Jobs-Green NY we are promoting home energy audits and energy efficiency retrofits.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I have studied climate change issues for about 20 years and have been involved in environmental programming throughout my career. I like the model of doing what people like for change.
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 bridge resources to the group from NYSERDA and RUPCO to help generate a large amount of interest in home energy upgrades. I'd like to help people save money and energy. I have also built a Green Certified home through NAHB at the gold level.
