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?
No formal affiliations at present, but comment regularly on political and environmental blogs. Have worked for groups in the past with transitional consciousness, and intend to work in such settings in the future.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I am convinced that creating a sustainable economy involves massive relocalization. The Transition movement is positioned to play a key role in helping people analyze the strengths and weaknesses of their local situation, and develop new policies to begin to relocalize. The Transition metaphor is a sound, non-threatening way to help people approach a set of issues that might otherwise seem to be threating.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
Looking for ways to embed Transition concept into the national conversation/debt about how to deal with the current economic downtown, so that the proposed solutions do not simply recapitulate the mistakes of the past. Too much of the rhetoric still eminates from the "all growth is good, more growth is better" school of global destruction.
