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 co-founded a group, Paths to a Sustainable Future, that has been studying and considering the Transition Town framework for over a year. We have not officially launched a Transition initiative, but have started a relocalization initiative called Live Local Milwaukee. We hosted a small conference in Sept 2008.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I love the positive tone, the 'we don't know if this will work but it's worth a try' attitude. I also appreciate that it is rooted in permaculture.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
We will be hosting a discussion about the Transition movement in January 2009 and hope that one or more initiatives might be launched as a result. Stay tuned!

Welcome Nicole and soon to be Transition Wisconsin! Great to see you here. You're one of our first from Wisconsin. "...We would like to continue to raise awareness among local groups and elected officials about the benefits of relocalization.." -- Don't hesitate to lead the way. Lots of communities can learn from Wisconsin.
We invite you to go to Starting Local Groups on Transition US and then to Wisconsin. Tell us a little more about what's happening in your neighborhood. This makes your group visible to other groups in Wisconsin and elsewhere around the world. Be sure to ask questions as they arise.
