How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I currently am an intern with WHDC and am helping two new cohousing communities form. I am also going to begin hosting sustainability screening at my home, to watch inspiring videos and discuss sustainability issues. I also have been doing a little bit of work with the American Planning Association in relation to the 'Livable communities act', creating comprehensive funding at a federal level to encourage integrated local community planning that promotes the use of existing infrastructure and 'walkable communities'.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I believe we need to be the change we wish to see in the world. We need to bring back the local economy and become self sufficient (especially in terms of energy and food production).
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I bring passion, organization and community building skills. I have a design/art background and also have various skills such as woodworking, welding, and ceramic knowledge.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
I hope to help the Transition movement grow by getting the word out, holding house parties and getting involved in all things local and sustainable.
