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?
Am involved in various Island transition initiatives in La Palma, where I live since yr 2000, still organising core group, have been doing talks and regular radio shows on transition topics since 2008. http://8thlife.org is my latest transition initiative which is in english.
Focusing on supporting permaculture students and activists with basic training all over Spain and some in Latin America (online and live courses), most of whom are involved in some kind of transition initiative.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Been doing transition work since 1995, set up one of the first community transition initiatives (Green Adventure) in London - using the same principles and methods! Very old now, rescued some info here http://www.finca-luna.com/GA
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
Am part of a great team of the permaculture academy here in Spain - we are preparing a big online & very complete "scientific or integral permaculture" course, which will be bilingual - the essential basic models in detail but also distilling the best of the newest & most radical models we now need to integrate into our designs.
will be offering free online conferences soon, send me a friend request if you might be interested.

this is also a great resource in english (most of my work is in spanish) for a truly integral model for this work, hope to amplify as a textbook online with the 8th life live experiences of a transition initiative growing
Stella I wouldn't know how to go about distinguishing threads and requesting posters in the Skype chat to put certain topics over here, for a different, and at the moment much smaller audience. The purpose of the group is to support TT implementers. The difficulty seems to be that the TT implementers either don't know about the group, or don't see themselves as such, or don't recognise that such support has value. Neither John nor I has given any attention to this.
Hi Stella. Which discussions would you like to see in this space. I'm more centred on currency issues than the transition movement, so I haven't really identified who in the movement should be here. I supposed they would find there way.
