How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I'm a certified teacher, IT professional, environmental educator and interpretive guide involved in local, national and international environmental and conservation organizations. I'm a native plant gardener and outdoors person intimately familiar with local plants and wildlife. I am currently an inspired TT initiator in my hometown.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I recognize the urgent need to prepare for a post petroleum and inevitable post carbon world. I love my region and feel compelled to take personal action and educate and encourage others to take action to build a resilient community. In particular I fear the potential damage to the community and it's critical natural resources caused by panic, opportunism and mistakes of a population caught off guard.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I am articulate, educated, passionate and best of all, well connected in this community where I've lived most of my life.
