How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I am looking to begin a transition initiative on Martha's Vineyard. I saw Rob Hopkins speak in spring 2008 at Findhorn ecovillage in Scotland and i have studied the transition movement and sustainability as well as small scale agriculture and peak oil issues.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I want to see our culture transform into a resilient and aware new era of interconnectivity and community support. I am very aware of the ongoing collapse of our global community of ecosystems, economic systems, cultures and natural systems. I would like to be a useful part in the great transition into our sustainable future.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
I intend to begin a new initiative here on Martha's Vineyard, working with the numerous organizations that already exist and adding new resilience and diversity to the community movement towards self-sufficiency.
Welcome to the Transition Massachusetts networking and information site. I wish you success in starting an initiative on Martha's Vineyard. There are currently few if any other residents of the Vineyard on this site, but if you engage others locally be sure to have them join the site and your new group. You can customize your group page with local information. Check out the Transition Newburyport page for examples. You can publicize the group page as a website for Transition Martha's Vineyard. Anyone can view it without joining the site, but only members can add comments.
Another great benefit of membership here is the exchange of ideas found in the Forum. I encourage everyone to follow these discussions and to participate. To learn how to most easily follow discussions on the Forum, please read my post (in the Forum) titled "How to use key features of this site most effectively." Click here to view that post directly.
The same feature is available for discussions in a group (like Transition Newburyport discussions) — group members must turn on "Follow — Email me when there are new discussions" to receive an email notification.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
