How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I recently learned about it, through contacts made at Earth Day in April, and through YES magazine.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Transition seems like the next step in my evolution to live lighter on the earth, and help others do the same.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I started two groups, one in Texas and one in Colorado, taking the discussion courses put out by NWEI, the North West Earth institute. An article I had written was published in Mother Earth News magazine. I am currently working on a humorous book about my efforts to live more sustainably given my disability (Cystic Fibrosis).
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
Involved in several social organizations whose members might be interested.

In your local community, does Colorado Springs have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup where Transition subjects are dealt with? If so, it would be spot on for all our Colorado members if you would consider including Colorado Springs in our registry of organizations, localities, virtual topics, companies, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. that support Transition and sustainability. What an opportunity for you to contribute to your neighbors!
