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....
"That was quick -- I just signed up to be on Transition Cascadia and here you are. Already I have a friend request! :-)
I'm curious to know if you have found any discussions, groups, fora, friends here. I mostly am thinking of tomorrow, the NICA…"
How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Through my communications work at YES! Magazine (www.yesmagazine.org) — sharing Transition stories on a regular basis through social media and other means. Meeting with a Transition book group in Seattle.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Ever since encountering the bioregional movement in the late 80's, I've been interested in localized, sustainable, solutions that are rooted in living appropriately where we live.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I can help grow the movement in my own local neighborhood (Southend Seattle, Columbia City/Seward Park/Rainier Valley). And I continue to promote transition-related topics, stories, and resources through social media and my other outreach & communications work at YES! Magazine.

I'm curious to know if you have found any discussions, groups, fora, friends here. I mostly am thinking of tomorrow, the NICA gathering up at Wooley Mammoth Community in Sedro Wooley. I've never been there before. We aim to head out by 8:00 -- and that's AFTER picking up Joanna and Morgan! So, I need to head to bed soon. Will take notes of some sort tomorrow and share with you later. We expect 40 - 50 people to be there. That's very large for a NICA gathering hosted at an IC. Bree will be there, Karen Studders (they're riding together--meeting for the first time), David, me and Mo/Jo, our board members and the PT staff person who does our social media and tech support, Kenneth Gilgren. Just mentioning people who you know or have heard of who'll mix with attendees from Bellingham, BC (O.U.R. Ecovillage), Olympia, Seattle and greater Skagit/Whatcom area. Should be interesting!
