How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
American ex-pat now residing in the United Kingdom in the lovely, rural county of Norfolk, and finding finding the Transition movement a wonderful way to get deeply involved with my community and make a positive contribution to my adopted country.
Attending Transition Training in Ipswich, Suffolk, Dec. 4 & 5, 2010, and very excited about that.
Currently organizing, with others I know here, an initiative for the market town of Swaffham and hinterland villages, West Norfolk, UK
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I have been drawn to the Transition movement because it mirrors my values in many ways, because it is happening here, and many ways are opening up for me to deepen my involvement. I also appreciate the fact that it brings me into contact with many interesting, dedicated and fun people, enhancing my sense of connectedness.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I have recently participated in the two-day Transition training (Dec. 4 & 5, 2010) in Ipswich, Suffolk, UK. It was incredibly informative and inspiring, and we were fortunate indeed to have as one of our trainers Naresh Giangrande, a co-founder of Transition Town Totness. Met some fantastic, committed people there, and enjoyed some wonderful after-hours hospitality as well.
I've been reading everything I can get my hands on about the various aspects of the Transition movement, and fiding ways to implement its principles in terms of real, positive impact in my immediate community.
As 2010 ends and the new year begins, a few of us here are holding the first initiating group meetings for what we envision as "Transition to a Sustainable Swaffham." Swaffham is a market town in West Norfolk. (http://www.swaffhamtowncouncil.gov.uk/)

On the local scene, does Castle Acre (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 Castle Acre 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. What do you think...? Do you want to do it?
