How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I am part of the University of Colorado at Boulder's initiative to localize climate change issues for Coloradans via learnmoreaboutclimate.colorado.edu. The site provides a series of informative films from climate scientists, teacher resources, and general climate change information with a focus on its impacts in Colorado.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
There are many research institutions within and connected to the University of Colorado at Boulder that deal with climate change. Our goal is to localize the issues surrounding climate change while providing helpful resources for residents and K-12 educators.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
Those within the Transition movement have a lot to offer each other and with cooperation and social outreach, I believe we can effectively combine our efforts.
