How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I am currently a student at CU-Boulder. I attended the Bioneers conference held here this year (2009), and I was absolutely inspired to get much more involved. I'm going to try to work on getting a Transition Boulder movement going, as well as one for my hometown of Berthoud, Colorado. I've also done a bit of volunteer work at the Beyond Organic farm in north Boulder, and I want to get more involved with local farms and farmers.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I see just how unsustainable our current society is, and I have a very strong desire to make a difference and move to a completely local, sustainable, community-based society. I don't see America being able to survive through natural, economic or political disasters with our current system, so I think that the Transition movement is the single most important cause in the world today.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I don't have a large amount of formal environmental training, but I do have good people skills and I think I have a pretty solid understanding of the amount of effort, work and dedication it will take to get the movement to go "viral".
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
I think I can show people just how promising this movement is, and just how much better of a society we can have in a post-oil America. I want to spread my newly found enthusiasm to others through positive thinking and visualization, and showing them just how powerful a group of like-minded people can be, and just how big of a difference we can make. I also think I'm a relatively creative thinker, so I believe I could help a movement kind of go with the flow and adapt to what works best for my community(ies).
