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....
I live in Blount County and am interested in what you are doing in your area, as I am interested in taking steps to begin something similar here. Please feel free to email me if you would like to discuss --…"
How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I run cosbycooperative.ning.com, a local trading/social network currently with 70 members and covering Sevier/Cocke Counties.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Survival primarily. It's pretty clear consumer society is going over a cliff.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
It's clear that we need to each individually examine our lives and pull our heads out of consumerism. It's not easy and it won't happen quickly. One thing I can do is keep Cosby Cooperative working as an example to others in hopes that such communities will spring up wherever folk are ready and eventually grow until they span the nation.
