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?
Sustainable Living student; technically not sure if I am involved in the Transition Town movement yet.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
A practical and all-inclusive shift towards a culture of ecological and societal symbiosis appeals to me (and seems to be of practical importance) and the Transition Town movement from what I understand addresses this in a very friendly, practical, inclusive way through strengthening community in existing towns and cities.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I'm not sure--feel free to ask me questions. I'm young and relatively uneducated and unexperienced, but it's possible I'll have useful insights or ideas for you to play with.
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Transition Movement
I don't know. I'm very fond of Arne Naess' Deep Ecology concepts. Also John Ikerd's Sustainable Capitalism.
Suggestions you have for improving our Registration questions. Getting to know you better.
Well . . . it would be nice to have a bit more of an introduction first.

On the local scene, does Fairfield (or some broader geographic area) have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup? If so, it would be spot on for all our members if you would consider including a link to Fairfield in our registry of organizations, localities, companies, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability. Here's the page to create the link -- http://transitioninaction.com/groups/group/new. I'll be glad to help launch and build your link. You interested?
