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....
Due to a conference commitment and a trip to Adelaide tomorrow until the weekend I still have not sent the broader invitation to connect with this group as yet - but I will add some contacts to it as soon as possible and try to ramp up the conversation. Unfortunately I won't see you this weekend due to my trip but look forward to further contact at an event in the near future.
Hi Christoph, Regina is good because people know their neighbours. But I find that no one is concerned about the depletion of oil. I haven't gotten into the group (BUSTED) yet because I have some work and financial business to attend to. I am thinking of going to the university to try to find some people who are aware and getting them to read the Long Emergency by James Howard Kunstler. Have you read it? Yes I would like to know about some of the experiences you had in starting a transition group.
Great to see your interest in Transition! Welcome to GLOBAL TRANSITION IN ACTION. You mention in your registration "...I'm interesting in helping to create a new (post-consumer) culture...." Great place to concentrate. You'll find many others here who think as you do. We look forward to sharing your experiences.
I see you've already connected with Mal and Adrian, and our Media and Resilience groups. Let me know what you think of kickstarting Transition Australia. Here's the page to create the link. I'll be glad to help launch and build your link.
