Inspired by our discussions today at the Laughing Cow, I started thinking about how we need to organize ourselves as we start the process of pulling our neighborhoods together to initiate transition ultimately. One thing that occurred to me is that I have no idea where other Transitioners are in Boulder. Is there anyone else in my neighborhood with whom I can share the job of organizing?
Perhaps one thing we might consider, to facilitate a grass-roots level effort- and it would involve this website actually, would be for us to identify where we each live in Boulder with perhaps a link to Google-Maps for a visual. Actually, an interactive Boulder map with neighborhoods labeled, community centers, etc. would be an excellent way for us to look at Boulder in a new way, to see where our assets and energy are. Later we could include features including a way to zoom in on neighborhoods and find the community greenhouses, root cellars, cobblers, micro-bakeries and cafés, etc.
